Mercedes SL Shooting Brake Concept Previewed

Mercedes SL Shooting Brake Concept Previewed

The Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake is arguably one of the best looking wagon-esque models out there, but automotive design students in Turin may have done better with a different Mercedes model.

Dubbed “Coupetorino 2013,” this design study, based on the SL roadster, was overseen by Steffan Koehl, head of Mercedes Global Advanced Design, in conjunction with StudioTorino and the design students in Turin. Unfortunately, for those looking at the images and drooling in anticipation, the SL Shooting Brake won’t see the light of day. In fact, only a 1:4 scale model has been built and since the project was solely for educational purposes, neither the German automaker or StudioTorino have plans of taking it further.

StudioTorino in the past has created limited-edition variants of the Porsche Boxster and Cayman S, in addition to a wagon variant of the Maserati Quattroporte.
