Chris Harris Shows Us Why the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake is the Perfect Compromise

Dads everywhere rejoice... No longer shall your pesky kids and/or wife get in the way of your testosterone-fueled desire for speed and power. Now, thanks to a quick convincing by expert tire destroyer Chris Harris, you might be able to purchase the perfect compromise courtesy of Mercedes-Benz. This tire-smoking, sideways-sliding, V8 people-mover, is the all new CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake, and it’s the perfect solution for those looking for badass V8 power and room enough for 2.5 children. Mercedes’ all-purpose wagon comes with interior seating for four and a “boot” capacious enough for many pairs of boots. Yet, unbeknownst to your innocent family, it also wields the aforementioned 5.5-liter bi-turbocharged V8 capable of churning out 557-hp at the rear wheels. So watch here as Chris Harris takes what most would assume to be your run-of-the-mill shooting brake, and turn it into a hot-blooded, heavy-footed V8 German super wagon.
