Blurb In the galaxy of automobile makers, the star in Stuttgart shines brightly. Arising from the accumulation of technology, design, and sports, a firm was created in 1886 whose economic force has made it a player of international significance. The concise and compelling texts shed light on manifold aspects of Mercedes history, from engineering to the economic political power exerted by this worldwide concern. Throughout the book, naturally, one thing stands out: the vehicle itself. Rainer W. Schlegelmilch’s photographs veritably pay homage to the embodiment of the German dream car. The revised edition presents the long series of models in chronological order, from Daimler motor carriages of 1886 to the new SLS of 2010, and explains contexts and Developments like Blue Efficiency or Distronic Plus.
