Mercedes-Benz Sport-Light Coupé — The Complete Story

by Nik Greene

In the very beginning, the automotive industry was dominated by open-top vehicles whose body shapes were very much based on the horse-drawn carriage, there were open and closed carriages and then there was the Coupe. This first volume of the Mercedes-Benz Coupe book addresses the journey from what was a functional sports car design to what has become the incomparable Mercedes-Benz 'Sports Coupe'; its timeless body design has remained, even today both a dream car and a dream Coupe to anyone whom aspires to follow in the early individualists who chose style and elegance over practicality.

This book includes:

  • An overview of the early days of 'Sports-Car' design
  • The influences of aerodynamics on design evolution
  • Early protagonists at Daimler-Benz and how they influenced design of the Coupé shape
  • How the Racing Coupé influenced what became the production Sport Coupé
  • The experimental and one-off prototypes
  • The continuation of the Super Sport Light concept through the 'S-Class' range
