The Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake concept which will
make its world premiere at Auto China 2010 in Beijing
is a design based on the company's CLS model which displays
a style in keeping with the FASCINATION
Mercedes-Benz describe the CLS Shooting Brake as a four
door coupe. But I think most people will agree that it's
more of a station wagon (estate car) than anything else.
That's not to say it's a boring family/utility vehicle.
Quite the opposite. It has a striking design with a multitude
of bold feature lines and powerful haunches.
"The Shooting Break concept car is based on the
great tradition of a stylish, cultivated sportiness which
has always characterised the great Mercedes Coupés,
and it takes this unique legacy an exciting step further,"
explains Professor Gorden Wagener, chief designer
at Mercedes-Benz. "At the same time it points
the way towards the future design idiom of Mercedes-Benz."
The CLS Shooting Break concept car is clearly a four-seater.
The four identically leather sports seats feature integrated
head restraints. Openings in the upper area of the backrests
make it possible to see through the seats. A large full-length
wood console on the transmission tunnel provides a visual
and physical divide between driver and front passenger,
while also providing space for two leather covered armrests,
cupholders and controls for the rear-seat air conditioning.
The CLS Shooting Brake concept is powered by a pre-production
prototype version of Mercedes' new 3.5 litre V6 engine.
This highly efficient engine features a start/stop function,
the latest piezo-electric injection valves and efficient
ancillary components. The engine produces 306 horsepower
(225 kW) and 370 Nm of torque.
