Description

With a long reputation for quality, durability, and good looks, the three-pointed star of Mercedes-Benz is recognized around the world. The Mercedes-Benz SL designation was first applied to the 300SL “Gullwing” with upward-opening doors in 1954, then onto other light and sporty models through current times. This book covers each model in depth, a year-by-year photo and information guide to each model in the 55-plus years of its existence. Includes the more modern SLK, SLS models, the numerous engine configurations spanning five design generations, and loaded with detail shots, production figures, design features, information on suspensions, brakes, transmissions, and wheels—just for starters. If you need to know something about an M-B SL-series model, tune in to this all-in-one vital resource!
