Mercedes-Benz, we love you. We love the CLS 63 AMG and we love the E63 AMG Wagon, and now you go ahead and make something beautiful with space in the boot and lines that give us goose bumps. But you’re teasing us like so many other manufacturers before you, because for some reason the U.S. is just never on your mind when deciding where to send a car some of us would offer a kidney to throw our luggage in and do donuts around pedestrians—safely of course.

The CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake runs the same 5.5-liter V8 biturbo as its four-door sibling, meaning it cranks out a healthy 516hp and 518 lb-ft of torque, but if you swing for the “Edition 1” option you’re left with 550hp and an obscene 590 lb-ft that MB claims will fly past 60mph in 4.3sec. Stupid fast? Yes, and you can bet your wallet it sounds just as awesome, like all the other AMG cars.

What more could you ask for? We suppose you could ask for space, but the Shooting Brake has loads of it, 54.74 cubic feet with the seats folded down to be exact. And for that rich, classy appeal, the cargo floor is covered in open-pore American cheery wood, so maybe think more fine leather suitcases instead of your Labrador puppies, plus, they could never handle the Gs. Hopefully if we express enough desire, Mercedes will send this one over, because, well, it looks downright awesome.
