2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG Coupe and Shooting Brake

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG
As well as débuting its 2014 E63 AMG at the Detroit Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz is also revealing its refreshed CLS 63 AMG Coupe and Shooting Brake models.

Featuring the same uprated 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8 engine as its E-Class counterpart, the four-door Coupe has 410 kW (557 hp) and 720 Nm of torque at its disposal. Mated to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission which features “C” (Controlled Efficiency), “S” (Sport), “S+” (Sport plus) and “M” (Manual) modes as well as a Race Start function with automatic double-declutching, the Coupe rockets to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds (Shooting Brake 4.3s) before reaching a limited 250 km/h top speed, while returning an average fuel consumption figure of 9.9 (10.1) l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 231 (235) g/km. When combined with AMG’s 33 to 67 percent front/rear biased 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system, the 0-100 km/h time drops to 3.7s (3.8s), but it is marginally thirstier at 10.4 (10.6) l/100 km and less green at 243 (248) g/km.

If that’s not enough, the more powerful CLS 63 AMG 4MATIC S-Model might be your cup of tea. Developing 430 kW (585 hp) and 800 Nm, it hits 100 km/h in 3.6 s (3.7s), features a differential lock on the rear axle and possesses those all-important red brake calipers. It also wears 10-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels with a high-sheen rim flange rather than the regular car’s triple-spoke items. Inside, the driver gets a Nappa leather-trimmed AMG Performance steering wheel, ‘S AMG’ logo on the 320 km/h speedometer and illuminated sill plates.

Once again Mercedes offers a wealth of optional extras, including an AMG ceramic composite 402 mm brake upgrade for the S-Model, a 1200 W Bang & Olufsen BeoSound surround sound system and the designo American cherry wood luggage compartment floor with brushed aluminium rails.

The rear-wheel-drive CLS 63 AMG with become available in April, with its all-wheel-drive and S-Model siblings following two months later.
