Mercedes W113 the complete story.

In 1963 the Mercedes W113 replaced two cars: the 300 SL racing legend and the successful 190 SL. In the process, the 230/250/280 SL two-seat coupe/roadster became an icon not only by carving out the perfect niche between its two predecessors, but also by being like no other car on the road. Mercedes W113 – The Complete Story explores both the technical and social side of how this legend was born.

The book covers:

– The W113’s predecessors – the 300 SL and the 190 SL

– Design and development of the 230, 250 and 280 SL models, including the distinctive concave ‘Pagoda’ roof and the ‘Californian Coupe’ rear seat option

– Bela Barenyi’s innovations that made the 230 SL the first ‘safety sports car’

– Rallying successes for the W113

– The R107 successor

– Specialist advice on ‘Pagoda’ restorations, and the W113 in popular culture
