Mercedes-Benz boss, Dieter Zetsche, has confirmed the CLS Shooting Brake will head into production. Revealed in concept car form at this year's Beijing auto show, the new four door coupe-cum-wagon is planned to go on sale in 2012 with the same range of engines as the new second-generation CLS sedan: naturally aspirated 3.5-litre V6 and turbocharged 4.6-litre V8 gasoline units and a 3.0-litre V6 common rail diesel. Also planned is a range topping CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake that, in combination with a optional performance package, is set to pack up to 571bhp. Ever since the CLS Shooting Brake was granted the official codename X216 back in June, rumours have circulated about its probable production future. Production of the new car will take place at Mercedes-Benz's Sindelfingen plant in Germany along the CLS sedan.
