This is a thorough and wide-ranging history of Mercedes-Benz Coupés, but also includes a creditable history of the early automobile. Mercedes-Benz being better known for its saloon cars, this book should have much to offer even seasoned Merc fans.
This book about Mercedes might appear to be extremely niche with its focus on saloon coupés. However, this has wider appeal, with the initial chapters looking not only at the development of cars in general, but also at how the new vehicles drew on the designs and nomenclature of horse-drawn carriages. It doesn't really get stuck into the saloon coupés as we would recognise them today until at least a third of the way through the book, but for us that made it more interesting.
