Mercedes-Benz SL (R230, 2001-2011): books - history

A book on the Mercedes-Benz SL (R230, 2001-2011)? Here are books on the history and technology of Mercedes-Benz sports cars.

Mercedes-Benz SL : R230 Series 2001 to 2011

As time goes by, older SLs have tended to fall into the hands of collectors, often becoming too valuable or rare to use on a daily basis. The R230-series, however, launched just over a decade ago, allows the enthusiast to enjoy a genuine modern classic - a car that, thanks to its bloodlines, is guaranteed a place in automotive history.
With very few books written covering the newer SL models, this book - the fourth volume in a series by Brian Long and Veloce Publishing covering all Mercedes SL models - brings the complete story of the R230 to life.
An invaluable resource, it is not only the ideal reference work - both for fans of the Stuttgart marque, and for those looking for originality in their own car - but, with its stunning photography, and contemporary material gathered from all over the world, also makes a true connoisseur's coffee table book.

Covers the following vehicles: SL350 (2001-2011), SL500 (2001-2006), SL55 AMG (2002-2011), SL600 (2003-2011), SL65 AMG (2004-2011), SL500/550 (2006-2011), SL280/300 (2008-2011) and SL63 AMG (2008-2009).
