In this case, the cars featured are the high end SL (convertible) and SLC (coupés) produced by Mercedes in the 1970s and 1980s.
There is a bias towards the SL versions but the cars featured are:
SL - 350, 380, 450, 500, 500 AMG, 560,
SLC - 380, 450
Since each article is written to stand on its own, there is repetition although the difference of opinions is interesting.
I particularly like the comparison tests and here we have:
450SLC vs Jaguar XJS
500SL vs Jaguar XJS cabriolet
560SL vs Corvette Roadster vs Porsche 911 Cabriolet
560SL vs Cadillac Alliante
560SL vs Cadillac Alliante vs Corvette Roadster vs Porsche 911 Cabriolet vs Ferrar 328 GTS
If colour photographs are important to you, this other book will suit you better Mercedes-Benz SLs & SLCs Ultimate Portfolio 1971-1989 (Brooklands Books Road Test Series) as it has 36 of its 208 pages in colour.
I have a large collection of these books featuring cars from the 1960s and 1970s and I compare the extent of colour included with the price. I prefer some colour photographs but the price difference can be more than I'm prepared to pay.
