In the galaxy of automobile makers, the star in Stuttgart shines brightly. Arising from the accumulation of technology, design, and sports, a firm was created in 1886 whose economic force has made it a player of international significance. The concise and compelling texts shed light on manifold aspects of Mercedes history, from engineering to the economic political power exerted by this worldwide concern. Throughout the book, naturally, one thing stands out: the vehicle itself. Rainer W. Schlegelmilch's photographs veritably pay homage to the embodiment of the German dream car. The revised edition presents the long series of models in chronological order, from Daimler motor carriages of 1886 to the new SLS of 2010, and explains contexts and Developments like Blue Efficiency or Distronic Plus. AUTHOR: The editor and photographer Rainer W. Schlegelmilch studied photography design in Munich and in 1964 opened a studio for advertising photography. Even during his studies, visits to car races led him to discover his passion for motor sports and fast cars. Hartmut Lehbrink's studies of English and German philology took him to Geneva, Münster, and Bonn. He has written numerous contributions for publications including auto motor und sport and ADAC-Motorwelt. Author Jochen von Osterroth first worked as a cartoonist. In 1971 he joined World News and became a Grand Prix reporter. Colour photographs
