Mercedes-Benz is a name synonymous with high quality engineering, renowned for its solidly built saloons, and with an excellant sporting pedigree, winning at Le Mans in 1952 with a model which went on to be transformed into the fastest road-going sports car in the world – the 300SL. This distinctive gullwing coupe founded the line of sporting Mercedes which still flourishes today. This book traces the development of the original 300SL to today’s 300 and 500SL versions – all with their common attributes of good performance. Illustrated with scores of colour photographs showing examples of each generation of SL, this study of the series history and development should appeal to motoring enthusiasts.
