by Andrew Noakes
As one of the most remarkable models that Mercedes-Benz has ever created, the 107-series was a sales success for nearly two decades and has been an automotive icon for far longer.
This was a very different car to the 300 SL that began the "Sports Light" line in 1952. Designed for a different purpose, it built on the success of its "Pagoda" predecessor by offering an unmatched blend of quality, looks, refinement, effortless performance and overall elegance.
It remained in production far longer than anyone could have imagined, bridging the gap between the classic era and cars that are recognizably modern. Today, the 107-series SL roadster and SLC coupé are appreciated for what they are - usable, enjoyable classics that benefit from the high standards of engineering that Mercedes-Benz is renowned for.
Andrew Noakes delivers the whole story of the 107-series, from its inception in the late 1960s and its development to include the newest safety features available, and explains how it was designed to receive an innovative new engine that never happened. The book also covers the creation of the SLC coupé models, the SL and SLC racing and rally cars, and the developments and changes to all the models during their long production life. The final chapter gives expert advice on buying and running a 107-series as a classic car.
This book is the essential reference for anyone interested in these popular Mercedes-Benz classics.
