Nothing says summer like driving a convertible. The car without a roof has always been a symbol for luxury and laissez-faire. And it still holds true today: everybody who's anybody drives "topless." The larger four-seater convertibles in particular have always been highly sought after--but they are difficult to build and have usually been made as coupés for this reason. Mercedes-Benz has always been a pioneer in this area. 'Mercedes-Benz: The Grand Cabrios & Coupes' gives us a peek at the long-standing partnership between Mercedes-Benz and Stuttgart-based photographer, Rene Staud. Carefully staged photos show graceful curves and precision down to the finest details that convey the company's dedication to a very special kind of driving pleasure. This volume presents the most important convertibles and related coupes from 100 years of Daimler automotive history. A special highlight is Daimler's new flagship, a convertible based on the new S-class that is being rolled out at the 2015 IAS. Even though summer eventually comes to an end, and sunny days can give way to showers, this book stands for everlasting convertible adventures. AUTHOR: Photographer Rene Staud made a breakthrough with the development of his Magicflash lighting technology; this type of surface lighting helps him greatly in his ad photos for top-shelf automakers. Staud and his team continue to develop new ways to meet the highest demands of the industry in both creativity and service. He has amassed 35 years of experience in ad photography; and has literally built the image of many companies with his photos. SELLING POINTS: * Open this glorious photo book and experience the classic Mercedes-Benz convertibles and the newest models in such realistic detail, you'll want to touch them * Elegantly-staged cars that made automotive history * Breathtaking curves that make "driving topless" a delight

From the earliest workshop days to the grandest marque in the automotive world, the story of one of the most important enterprises of the twentieth century comes alive in this complete history. The rich history of Daimler-Benz (now DaimlerChrysler) has its roots in the early experimentation with the use of the internal combustion engine by three men: Carl Benz, Gottlieb Daimler, and William Maybach. Benz, working alone, and Daimler and Maybach, working together, the two shops separated by a mere sixty miles, in the late 1880s simultaneously laid the foundation of what would become the German automotive industry. At first there was competition between Benz & Cie. and Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft, as they engineered and styled the earliest motorwagens and began to develop markets for their products. These early efforts led to the establishment of an entire industry by the start of World War I. But the war and its aftermath devastated these two companies, as it did the German economy overall. By the early 1920s it became apparent that the only way to survival was a merger, and thus, on June 29, 1926, the stockholders of both companies gave approval to the new company, Daimler-Benz, which led directly to the birth of one of the world's best-known brands: Mercedes-Benz. In the hands of noted automotive photographer, author, and editor Dennis Adler, the history of the marque and the company unfolds through the decades, as Mercedes-Benz advances in fame, from the racing glory years to the present, becoming the standard that all automakers strive to meet. With archival (many never before published) and the author's own photographs, the beauty and power of the automobile comes alive, from the earliest models to the first crop of twenty-first-century Mercedes-Benzes. It is a story of excellence that is in many ways unmatched in the history of any industry. Today, as a global leader in design, safety, and overall excellence, Mercedes-Benz continues to lead the way.

That dream car of all dream cars, the Mercedes-Benz, is presented here in full glory through 285 images. What were the qualities that made them icons of all auto building? Beginning in the pioneer days with the 35 HP model of 1901 through the top-rank sports cars of the 1920s and 1930s, the gullwing-door 300 SL and the legendary "Uhlenhaut Coupe" of the 1950s, and the C 111, with its Wankel engine, of the late 1960s, the line goes on to the present-day SLS AMG. While history influenced changes in construction and design, they blend smoothly into a series yet retain distinctive variations. An exciting spectrum of 18 super sports cars is featured with text that is both entertaining and informative. For the sports car enthusiast and automotive history buff, this is a book you will refer to time and time again.

Especially late W111 cabriolets have reached values in 2015 that were deemed impossible just a few years ago. Now also coupes start to follow them. Luckily there are other 1960s Mercedes models such as the W110, W111 and W112 sedans that will not reach these levels, although they are as much fun to drive. They might not be as lavishly equipped as their expensive two-door siblings, but they are today almost as rare, especially if one looks for a good one. If any of this is of interest, then this book is for you. It was completely revised in June 2015 and covers the W110, 111, 112 models from the 190c to the 280SE 3.5 cabriolet. Next to the development and history it explains in detail the cars' VIN and data card, so that one has a better understanding, how these cars were equipped and to which market they have been shipped first. Superb recent photography, which also covers the underside of each car, might help to decide which car is the right one to buy. A technical section covers their exterior / interior color and upholstery options, the production history plus engine and performance data of each model from the 1.9 l diesel to the 3.5 l V8. FREE BONUS: When you have bought this book, you are eligible for a free pdf file of any Mercedes model (such as W108 or W198 or R107 for example) the author has covered in one of his books. Please contact the author through his website (inside the book) and stipulate, which free pdf file you want him to send to you.

This book contains an in-depth study including some 340 photographs most of them published for the first time of the all-road Mercedes Benz G4: the magnificent automobile clearly associated with Adolf Hitler who favored it before and during WWII for traveling and parades. Only three out of a limited series of 57 units have survived till today. But only one of these is in fully original condition: the G4-540 presented by Hitler to General Franco. This car is thoroughly documented here in an outstanding pictorial report."

This book covers Joan Newton Cuneo’s life, and her roles (from 1905 to 1915) as the premier female racer in the United States and spokeswoman for women drivers and good roads. Beginning with her family history and marriage to Andrew Cuneo, it traces her life in New York society, the birth of her children, and Joan’s growing interest in automobile touring and racing and partnership with Louis Disbrow, her racing mechanic. The book covers Joan’s experiences in three Glidden Tours, including her notes on the 1907 tour, her first races, and her rivals. It also looks at the growth and change of automobile culture and the battles for control of racing among the American Automobile Association, the Automobile Club of America, and the American Automobile Manufacturers Association—which ended in banishing women racers shortly after Joan’s greatest racing victories at New Orleans (in 1909). The book then follows Joan’s attempts to continue racing, the end of her marriage, her move to the Upper Peninsula, and her remarriage and death. The book also includes a chapter on her female rivals in racing and touring.
