Mercedes-Benz F800 Style – Click above for high-res image gallery

When the next generation Mercedes-Benz CLS hits the streets in the next 24 months, the car that started the industry-wide trend towards "four door coupes" is expected to be joined by a shooting brake variant. That car may well appear as a concept at next month's Beijing Motor Show. and is sure to be inspired by the F800 concept we saw in Geneva last month.

AutoCar has the liberty of producing a rendering of the concept, and in traditional shooting brake form, the CLS wagon is more five door hatch than pure utilitarian wagon like the E-Class. The back end of the CLS will probably draw on the look of the 2008 Fascination concept, with motivation provided by the next generation direct injected and boosted gas engines, as well as the usual array of diesels. Expect more details to follow in the run-up to next month's show in China.

      My guess is that it will resemble Concept Fascination. Hopefully.

      It's not going to be a true shooting-brake.

      Real shooting-brakes have two doors, the CLS is a four door. Making a four door "coupe" (it's a sedan) does not make it a shooting-brake, but a station wagon.

      So M-B's answer to the BMW 5-series GT?

        I expect this to be a much prettier than the GT. Though my love for shooting brakes has a lot to do with my expectation.

      If it is a real shooting brake, its just another great looking car that we won't get in the US.

      The article makes it sound like a station wagon to me.

      I like the prominent and bold Mercedes styling, and the Audi brake lights.
