Coupetorino 2013 is a stylish Mercedes-Benz SL shooting brake

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 16, 2013

Back in 2008, we saw the first Coupetorino based on the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class and honestly we were speechless and we did like the idea of a shooting brake variant of the well-known coupe-cabriolet. Due to the fact that Mercedes-Benz rolled off a new generation of the SL, Italian design house StudioTorino revealed the Coupetorino 2013, a shooting brake version of the new SL.

The new car was designed by six students - Michele Bavaro, Bruno Arena, Dario Pellegrino, Stefano Manini, Riccardo Luigi Cascone, Cristiano Zanot – in collaboration with Steffen Koehl from Global Advance Design Mercedes-Benz. The students made a 1:4 scale model of the vehicle but this is not just a simple design, as they had to take into account production costs.

Although we don’t have any details regarding the engine, we believe that the 4.6-liter V8 engine found on the SL550 would be the perfect choice as it delivers 429 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Using a 7-speed Driver-Adaptive automatic transmission, the SL550 is able to zoom from 0 to 96 km/h (60 mph) in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited to 155 mph or 250 km/h.
