In 1952 Mercedes-Benz astonished the racing world with the successes it achieved with its 300SL, exploiting an advanced space-type frame and aerodynamic body with gullwing doors. Already the subject of a Ludvigsen Library Series book, the racing 300SL inspired the creation of a production version, which first took flight in 1954. The 300SL stunned critics and experts alike with its fabulous performance-more than 150 miles per hour-exotic looks and superb build quality. Not just a pretty face, the 300SL was also extremely successful in competition on both sides of the Atlantic. The original coupe was followed by a roadster version in 1957; in all, 3,258 were made. Drawing on his unmatched archive of Mercedes-Benz photos, including coverage by Rudy Mailander and Edward Eves of the 300SL production line, Karl Ludvigsen presents the 300SL in all its glory. He also draws on his own experience as an owner of one of these great cars.

Nothing says summer like driving a convertible. The car without a roof has always been a symbol for luxury and laissez-faire. And it still holds true today: everybody who's anybody drives "topless." The larger four-seater convertibles in particular have always been highly sought after--but they are difficult to build and have usually been made as coupés for this reason. Mercedes-Benz has always been a pioneer in this area. 'Mercedes-Benz: The Grand Cabrios & Coupes' gives us a peek at the long-standing partnership between Mercedes-Benz and Stuttgart-based photographer, Rene Staud. Carefully staged photos show graceful curves and precision down to the finest details that convey the company's dedication to a very special kind of driving pleasure. This volume presents the most important convertibles and related coupes from 100 years of Daimler automotive history. A special highlight is Daimler's new flagship, a convertible based on the new S-class that is being rolled out at the 2015 IAS. Even though summer eventually comes to an end, and sunny days can give way to showers, this book stands for everlasting convertible adventures. AUTHOR: Photographer Rene Staud made a breakthrough with the development of his Magicflash lighting technology; this type of surface lighting helps him greatly in his ad photos for top-shelf automakers. Staud and his team continue to develop new ways to meet the highest demands of the industry in both creativity and service. He has amassed 35 years of experience in ad photography; and has literally built the image of many companies with his photos. SELLING POINTS: * Open this glorious photo book and experience the classic Mercedes-Benz convertibles and the newest models in such realistic detail, you'll want to touch them * Elegantly-staged cars that made automotive history * Breathtaking curves that make "driving topless" a delight

With prices for the older Mercedes-Benz models, such as the 'Pagoda' and W107 SLs heading ever higher, many enthusiasts are now starting to look at the R129 series SL. Produced from 1989-2001, it combined timeless elegance, luxury and effortless performance, with V12 engines available for the first time. The R129 was the last SL with a detachable hardtop and - for many Mercedes fans - the last to be built to the marque's legendary standards of construction. With that sophistication came new levels of equipment and unprecedented complexity. For would-be buyers today, there are more points than ever to watch out for. The cars' weight also puts strain on components such as the brakes and suspension. Choosing a good R129 demands care. This buyer's guide will help you do just that. Learn about the differences between models, and what to look for when buying. What are the true running costs, and what issues - with the mechanicals, body or interior - should you be wary of? Find the answers to these questions and information about the clubs and specialists who can help look after your R129 today.
