Just a few days after the all-new CLS Shooting Brake variant was revealed, Mercedes has quietly released first images and details of the high-performance CLS 63 AMG variant via their German site.

It should come as no surprise the model remains the same as its sedan (aka four-door coupe) sibling with a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 which produces 557 PS (410 kW / 550 bhp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque with the AMG Performance package while the standard engine configuration is rated at 525 PS (386 kW / 518 bhp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. Connected to the AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sport transmission, the AMG Shooting Brake achieves a combined fuel consumption figure of 10.1L/100 km and CO2 emissions of 235 g/km.
