Following its media reveal a few weeks ago, the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake made its public premiere on the "Night of the Stars" at the German Grand Prix this past weekend.

Revealed during a staged fashion show, the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake appeared on the catwalk as the highlight of the show. But not before other Mercedes models were presented. They included the new A-Class (A 250 Sport) which was accompanied by DTM drivers Roberto Merhi, Christian Vietoris and Robert Wickens; Susie Wolff in the SLK 55 AMG; Ralf Schumacher in the SL 65 AMG "45th Anniversary" model; as well as Gary Paffett and Jamie Green at the wheel of the new G 63 AMG.

Other famous faces of the Mercedes brand in attendance were Formula 1 drivers Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg as well as AMG brand ambassadors David Coulthard and Mika Häkkinen who introduced the "Edition 1" variant of the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake.

To bring events full circle another underlying highlight was the fact that Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg during a recent visit to Mercedes-AMG helped to assemble the M 157 V8 engine in the "Edition 1". Foregoing the traditional AMG philosophy of "one man, one engine" in favor of "one team, one engine" the high-performance V8 engine bears the signatures of Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg on the AMG engine badge.

The market launch of the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake and the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake "Edition 1" will commence in October 2012. Pricing in Germany (incl. 19% VAT) is as follows:

  • CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake: €117,512.50
  • CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake "Edition 1": €128,639
