MERCEDES-BENZ, The early Mercedes SL cars: W121, W198, W113
Summary: The Mercedes 300SL, 190SL and Pagoda SL were already legends, when still in production. This has not changed until today. Names like "Gullwing" or "Pagoda"are forever associated with the SL name. Both cars are the foundation on which every new SL still rests today. And the SLK traces its roots back to the 190SL,the car that convinced management in the 1950s that the SL story was worth to be developed further. This 270-page book was updated in November 2017 and gives you all the facts about the SL cars from the 1950s and 1960s. It also comes with plenty of recent non-Daimler AG color photos, including the suspensions of all three cars. The title is one of over twenty-five books/e-books by the author about Mercedes cars. And these are some of the topics covered:

  • The time that made the 300SL possible
  • Development of the 300SL Coupe
  • The 300SL Coupe
  • The secret SLS
  • Development of the 300SL Roadster

Why is this book not available as hard cover? Even today with modern digital printing services available, books with many color photos are expensive to produce. This book comes with some 200 high quality photos, 160 of them in color, and would cost retail as hardcover version over US$ 80 (or the corresponding amount in £ or  €), which the author finds excessive. That is why the choice to offer the more reasonable to produce soft cover option. Thank you for your understanding.
