Shooting brakes used to be a British thing, the Reliant Scimitar and various bespoke versions from Aston Martin, Bristol, Bentley and there is even a couple of Ferrari 456 shooting brakes, allegedly belonging to the Brunei royal family.
Mercedes Benz has caught the bug and after approving the CLS shooting brake late last year (it may show up at Frankfurt as the real McCoy) they have now approved the production of a baby shooting brake, presumably from the CLC model family.
Bravo to Mercedes-Benz.
