Why is this book not available as hard cover? Even today with modern digital printing services available, books with many color photos are expensive to produce. This book comes with over 290 high quality photos, some 200 of them in color, and would cost retail as hardcover version slightly over US$ 75 (or the corresponding amount in £ or  €), which the author finds excessive. That is why the choice to offer the more reasonable to produce softcover option. Thank you for your understanding.

About the Author:

With over 30 books and e-books written about Mercedes-Benz cars, Bernd S. Koehling has proven to be an authority on the brand. These books cover cars from the 1947 170V to the 2012 SL R231.
 
Bernd has been involved in the Mercedes scene since the early 1970s, when he restored his first 170 Cabrio B. Since then he has not only owned many classic Mercedes including a 220S, 300d Adenauer, 200D, 250SE, 280SE coupe 3.5, 300SEL, 350SL, 280E, 450SE, SLK230, he has also gained a wealth of knowledge and experience, which he shares with his readers in his books. .Mercedes has always been considered one of Bernd's favorite car manufacturers and he has driven almost all Mercedes models built since the 1950s. His other weakness revolves around British cars, here especially Jaguar and Alvis.
