Louis Sugahara, whose fascination with Mercedes-Benz race cars began in childhood, combines his artistic talent and automotive expertise to take readers back to the golden age of Grand Prix racing when the Silver Arrows dominated the circuits. From the W25 to the W196, Sugahara traces the evolution of the Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix race cars that competed between 1934 and 1955, including the renowned 300 SLR racing sports car. Using historical records, the author documents the ongoing modifications that were made to the cars due to formula rules, circuit conditions, and the racing styles of such legendary drivers as Caracciola, Lang, von Brauchitsch, Fagioli, Fangio, Herrmann, Moss, and Kling. The book captures the excitement of Mercedes' greatest victories as well as the dedication of racing manager Alfred Neubauer and the genius of the engineering team behind the Three-Pointed Star. The lively narrative is illustrated with rare historical photographs and more than one hundred original drawings by the author. These meticulous renderings of the vehicles, accompanied by detailed commentary, show how body styling and even minor exterior features, such as the radiator grille, windscreen, and rear-view mirror, were influenced by the constant process of modification and experimentation. Supplemented by an appendix containing circuit layouts, race results, and model specifications, this unique "picture book for grown-ups" conveys the enormous technical and emotional appeal of the invincible Mercedes.

In 1952, Mercedes-Benz astonished the world with its 300SL sports-racing cars, sleek coupes with startling, gull-wing doors. Based on the 300S production model but installed in a radical, tubular space frame, the 300SL was a tour de force of lightweight aerodynamic design. The later production 300SL has been well chronicled, the 1952 racing model has not, until now. This book portrays the amazing achievements of these tough cars and their epic victories at Le Mans and in the Carrera Panamericana. Extensive, unpublished photography superbly and intimately captured by Rodolfo Mailander show the 300SL at the Mille Miglia, Berne, Nurburgring and Le Mans. Rare Daimler-Benz archive photos also show the prototype, designed and built for the 1953 season and never raced. Every fan of racing and Mercedes-Benz will relish the pictorial revelations of this book.
