This exhaustive history presents the entire Mercedes-Benz heritage from Benz and Daimlers separate ventures through their 1926 merger and the 1999 deal that created DaimlerChrysler. Dennis Adlers masterful photos depict classics like the behemoth 7.6-liter 770 Grosser introduced in 1930, the legendary gullwing 300SL, and 1998s supercharged SLK230, to name but a few. Along the way, readers witness an incredible racing heritage that encompasses drivers from Fangio to Moss to Hakkinen, wartime activities, and a succession of design exercises and trendsetting cars unrivaled in the history of the automobile.
