The Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 was a gamble and the 600 Grosser at least for most European markets too big and flashy. The Pagoda SL was an even bigger gamble. It was to replace not only the iconic 300SL, but also the more affordable 190SL. Only the W108 was a sure bet. It was the consequent evolution of a successful executive car that finally did away with the"one body fits all demands" philosophy. This 290-page book was last updated in Dec. 2016 and covers them all: the 600, pagoda SL and the W108/109 with six- and eight-cylinder engines. It comes also with superb recent non-Daimler AG color photos, including pictures of the suspensions. These are some of the topics covered:

Enjoy!.Why is this book not available as hard cover Even today with modern digital printing services available, books with many color photos are expensive to produce. This book comes with some 300 high quality photos, most of them in color, and would cost retail as hardcover version around US$ 70 (or the corresponding amount in £ or €), which the author finds excessive. That is why the choice to offer the more reasonable to produce soft cover option. Thank you for your understanding.
