The saloon cars produced by Mercedes-Benz during the 1960s and '70s were hailed in their day for their sophistication and quality and the intervening years have taken away little of that respect. Many of the rugged cars from the seventies are still in regular use, while the cars from the swinging sixties are increasingly regarded as style icons - the perfect chic transport for artists and celebrities.The author takes a sideways look at these impressive cars, intertwining history, technical detail and anecdote. Including discussion of the saloon-based cabriolets and diesels from this era, this is a book to be welcomed by any Mercedes fan.
