The facelifted CLS63 AMG S-Model Shooting Brake is one of the fastest wagons
available today. The model produces 585 hp (410 kW) and features an updated
version of the Mercedes' AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sports transmission.
Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH said: "The CLS 63 AMG in its Coupe and Shooting Brake guise is now even more dynamic, and the new design makes it more striking. With a power output of 585 hp and AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the CLS63 AMG takes pole position in the driving dynamics stakes."
All 2015 CLS63 AMG models come with the AMG Ride Control sports suspension with electronically controlled damping system, steel suspension at the front and air spring system at the rear. Hallmark AMG features including more negative camber on both axles and track widened by an inch (24 millimeters) at the front provide more stability at high cornering speeds and better road feel. The CLS63 AMG S-Model is fitted with an optimized 3-link front suspension including axle components made of aluminum. The driver benefits from both more grip and agility as well as decidedly neutral handling characteristics on fast bends. The markedly more performance-oriented elastokinematics are exclusive to the S-Model, and offer the driver even better feedback and grip at the critical limits.
The AMG high-performance braking system is perfectly matched to the high power output. The CLS63 AMG comes with internally ventilated and perforated brake discs with their generous 360-millimetre dimensions front and rear. An AMG ceramic high-performance composite braking system is exclusively available for the S-Model as an optional feature - recognizable by the even larger 402-millimetre brake discs at the front and the AMG Carbon Ceramic logo on calipers sporting a special paint finish.
