It has only been around for a generation, and it is an absolute exotic who always struggled to achieve the desired sales figures. The Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake (X 218). With its station wagon and the long bonnet, it still looks very sporty nowadays, and the round rear section not only ensures good aerodynamics, but also surprisingly high transport quality. Only around 200 liters less capacity than an E-Class T-Model, which results in a luggage compartment that is roughly comparable to that of a BMW Five-Series Touring or an Audi A6 Avant, demonstrates the car's talent for loading. You could also say that it was the first luxury-class station wagon that was launched some time before the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, but was not as successful when it comes to sales figures. Nevertheless, he has CLS Shooting Brake found its fans, and even a tuned copy that does its rounds in China, we found for you on the Internet.

This noticeable green foiled CLS Shooting Brake that comes with a bodykitThe fact that the round shape of the car is designed and equipped with a bit more angularity and, above all, allows the front fenders to grow significantly in width, attracts everyone's attention. Equipped with gray ADV.1 rims in 20-inch format that shine with a concave star and one Airride chassis from Magic Air, the green combi-coupé mutates into an asphalt milling machine as soon as the chassis is set to zero bar. They are also noticeable Carbon look roof as well as the big one roof spoilerwhich, in our opinion, is almost a little too thick. There was another one at the front spoiler Attached in carbon look, which ensures that the Benz looks deeper.
The stern is characterized by a conspicuous diffuserwhich of a Four-pipe exhaust system in the classic AMG style is flanked. The exhaust system, however, comes from the Eisenmann GmbH, and should once again put the standard sound in the shade. In addition, a Brembo racing brake system installed, whose brake calipers are kept in glossy black. This guarantees optimal deceleration even at high speeds. It is very noticeable Chinese characters at the rear, which takes the place of the Mercedes star. We are of the opinion that this CLS Shooting Brake cuts a fine figure on every boulevard, as well as at an open-brand tuning meeting.
The interior remained largely standard.
In the interior, only the control unit of the Magic Air landing gear on, but otherwise everything remained in its original condition, which means that full comfort is retained. An AMG sports steering wheel and carbon look in the cockpit create a sporty flair.
Unfortunately, we do not know anything about the drive.
Unfortunately, we don't know which engine is under the long bonnet of the CLS Shooting Brake. But we are pretty sure that the car is not underpowered and think that it is ideal as a touring vehicle and for long stretches of the motorway.
