Tuners and coach-builders are known for transforming a convertible into a coupe or vice-versa if none is available directly from the automaker. StudioTorino decided transform the Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster into a true coupe while maintaining the car's identity.
The StudioTorino CoupeTorino 1:4 scale model designed by Alfredo Stola is on display at the Turn World Design Capital 2008 event. It was built by StudioTorino in cooperation with Istituto di Arte Applicata e Design (IAAD).
The display also features a photographic exhibit presenting all of its developmental stages of the CoupeTorino from its conception to its realization.
