  • Stuttgart, Mar 28, 2012 - The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class has always set the highest design standards in all model series. Both outside and in, the vehicles are as if hewn from the same block and most show their credentials as future classics during their own production lifetime. The word “design”, also adopted in German for the creative process from English usage, incorporates the concept of technical design, of engineering in the English sense of the word.

  • Stuttgart, Mar 28, 2012 - Peter Pfeiffer and automotive design – in particular Mercedes-Benz design – was never a story one might logically have predicted from the start. The move towards automotive design in Sindelfingen took place in several stages. In addition, Pfeiffer’s life as a designer at Mercedes-Benz was marked by two paradigm changes in design: clay models and computer-aided design (CAD) greatly influenced the design process in terms of the time process and immediate creativity.

  • Stuttgart, Mar 28, 2012 - Bruno Sacco and Mercedes-Benz SL – this is a very special success story extending over the past few decades. For the past and, for a time, the present of SL history, from the 300 SL (W 198 series, 1954 to 1957) to the R 129 SL series (1989 to 2001), are concentrated in the person of Sacco in a way that cannot be said of anyone else at Mercedes-Benz.
