It's hard to believe, but the 107-series Mercedes-Benz SL was launched almost 40 years ago. However, its timeless styling has kept it fresh and attractive in the eyes of a new generation of enthusiasts, as well as those going back to the car, having owned one when they were still in dealerships, while the availability of the practical SLC, an extended, four-seater fixed-head coupe version, simply adds to the desirability of this series of classic German machines. A combination of superb original design, peerless engineering and build quality has ensured that many of these cars can still be seen in regular use today.
Covering the SL and SLC's ever-changing specification, race and rally record, and its presence in many of the world's major markets is a huge task, but it's all presented here in definitive detail, along with stunning contemporary photography, in a volume that will readily grace any reference library shelf or connoisseur's coffee table. This detailed and beautifully illustrated book covers the Mercedes-Benz W113 series, which ran from 1963 to 1971. Written by a highly regarded motoring writer, with many years ownership of the Mercedes SL and SLC behind him, this is the definitive study of the subject.
All major markets are looked at, along with competition history and extensive appendices covering engine specifications, chassis numbers, build numbers, and so on. Features: * Stunning contemporary photography, mostly in colour * Year-by-year coverage of all the road cars * Detailed vehicle profiles for authenticity * Competition exploits covered in detail * World markets reviewed to give true picture of cars available * Full co-operation from the factory * Written by a long-term Mercedes owner and enthusiast * Stand-alone title, or complements other Long/Veloce SL book * Written by an acknowledged motoring historian * Detailed appendices
