A design created by Studiotorino and IAAD (Istituto d'Arte Applicata e Design) Coupetorino Mercedes SL is a coupe based on the Mercedes-Benz SL roadster. The object of the design was to create a coupe from the roadster, without compromising on the aesthetics of the roadster.
Designed for the 'Turin World Design Capital 2008' event in the "Bespoke Coachwork" class, this 1:4 scale model was created by Alfredo Stola at StudioTorino and Piotr Degler Jablonski at IAAD. The idea was to transform the Mercedes SL into an exclusive coupé with Italian flair.
The car was revealed at the Turin Gallery's premiere, will be on display as part of an exhibit entitled 'Bespoke Coachwork' from December 12 to December 23. To see more of StudioTorino's handiwork, check out the Maserati Cinqueporte concept, or the Porsche Cayman RK.
