When Mercedes-Benz launched the Concept Shooting Brake showcar in 2010 as a preview to the second generation CLS, journalists and fans were amazed and quickly began wondering if the prototype would ever make it to serial production. After having received a positive response, the German constructor announced that it has greenlighted the series model, set to arrive in spring 2012. The new niche car in the portfolio also rewrites the principles of a classic shooting brake, in addition to creating a whole new class of vehicles. Don't expect too much luggage space, because this unique CLS will serve entirely as VIP shuttle. There will be four comfortable individual seats inside for an added coupe feeling; through the finest leather upholsteries, high-grade finish aluminium and pure essence wood trims in various combinations, the premium atmosphere will be entirely ensured. Programmed for a Geneva 2012 premiere, the new CLS Shooting Brake could be a bit pricier compared to the CLS Coupe - expect a basic tag of around € 63,000 to € 65,000 (in Germany).
