Shooting Brake

  • 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake

    Americans still aren't too keen on wagon body styles, and that likely makes the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake off limits stateside. However, the compact wagon made its debut at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show on Tuesday where it will join the CLA sedan in Europe. The CLA Shooting Brake is aimed at customers who perhaps wouldn't put Mercedes-Benz on their vehicle shopping lists. The CLA-Class is a stepping stone into the luxury brand, and the CLA Shooting Brake provides more space for drivers and passengers and their cargo. The coupe-like look of the CLA sedan translates well...

    British start-up Alcraft aims to build an electric shooting brake

    You've never heard of Alcraft Motor Company. That's because this is the start-up's very first attempt at building a car. Foremost, may we say it looks lovely.

    Mustang Shelby GT500 Shooting Brake Is Vaporware, But We Want It Anyway

    If you were to imagine the worst possible Photoshop of a fictional Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Shooting Brake, this is what you'd likely end up with. Strand Craft is great at making vaporware (both road-going and ocean-going). Almost all of it is wholly unbelievable. But we want this to be real. Or...

    Porsche Shows Its Panamera Sport Turismo On The Road: Video

    Though some have panned the styling of Porsche’s Panamera sedan, we think the car’s lines do a reasonable job of making it seem sporty while linking it, design-wise, to the rest of Porsche’s product line. That said, we’d also admit that it looks much better as a shooting...

  • A Ferrari FF, destroyed in a Nashville, Tennessee crash

    To make Ferrari’s FF shooting brake more civil for everyday driving, the automaker incorporated its first-ever all-wheel-drive setup in the 651-horsepower grocery-getter. Combined with its sophisticated electronic stability control systems, the Ferrari FF is arguably one of the most forgiving Ferraris ever built. Still, the laws of physics apply to any car, even the Ferrari FF. A Nashville, Tennessee FF owner found this out the hard way when he impacted a curb at speed in his new Bianco Avus Ferrari, tearing off the right front wheel and peeling back the bodywork up to the passenger...

  • 2012 Ferrari FF

    Love it or hate it, the 2012 Ferrari FF marks a bold step for Ferrari into relatively new territory. Not only is the shooting brake body a first for a volume model from the Italian automaker but the car also sports its first all-wheel drive system. If just a year or two ago you said Ferrari would launch an all-wheel drive hatch, most people would call you crazy, but here we are, with dozens of shots of the new FF in front of us, each of them making us want the car that much more. In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past six months and all this is new to you, the FF is...
