Mercedes-Benz' performance division has taken on the German automaker's latest luxury model to create a another market niche - the 415kW CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake.

 
Mercedes-Benz brand ambassador and avid golfer Adam Scott will be playing in the 141st Open championship – said to be world's oldest golf tournament. And for the second consecutive year, Mercedes-Benz will be the “Official Car of the Open championship”.

It's played every year at Lytham St Anne's in Lancashire, England.

As a highlight in the lead-up to the event, Mercedes-Benz racing driver David Coulthard surprised Adam Scott with a drive in the new CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake, due to celebrate its world premiere in a few days' time.

REAL SURPRISE

During a quick spin through the picturesque Lancashire countryside, the duo talked about their two shared passions: Mercedes-Benz cars and golf. Scott said it was fantastic and a real surprise to be picked up by Coulthard and driven out to the course.

The trip was cut short as Scott had to leave to continue training for the open.

Coulthard was impressed by the new CLS Shooting Brake: “I love the fact that Mercedes-Benz are always coming out with new concepts. And I think the CLS Shooting Brake as a concept works, you have something which is very sporty looking, but equally it can be used for everyday driving.

"And of course it has the space that you want in this type of class of car.”
