This year saw the release of numerous renderings of different sports cars and supercars, and the Mercedes-Benz SL Shooting Brake is just one of them. The increasing fascination of Mercedes-Benz with shooting brakes may have inspired Theophilus Chin to create a rendering of the vehicle as indicated in a report from the worldofcarfans.com.
The vehicle appears less awkward compared to the Mercedes-Benz SL350 convertible that served as its basis. The rear hatch of the vehicle is quite notable due to its unique rear tailgate and sloping roofline. The long roof evokes memories of another shooting brake that is currently being developed, the Corvette C7 Shooting Brake AeroWagon.
The Mercedes-Benz SL Shooting Brake rendering is a two-door vehicle that features a pair of new side windows. The side windows as shown on the rendering are designed to reduce any blind spots on the vehicle.
The latest SL model may not be the best-looking grand touring car available in the market its twin turbo 5.5-liter engine makes it a pretty impressive vehicle. This may have been in the mind of Theophilus Chin when he created the rendering of the supercar of the luxury vehicle manufacturer.
Mercedes-Benz is set to introduce a new Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake along with an enhanced Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake. The CLS Shooting Brake will is expected to be launched by the company by next year. On the other hand, the CLA Shooting Brake is expected to be launched sometime in 2015.
It remains uncertain if the vehicle will ever be produced by the luxury vehicle manufacturer since no announcements were made by the company. However, the rendering of the Mercedes-Benz SL Shooting Brake will give Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts an idea of how the vehicle may look like if it will come out of the production line of the company.
