Once upon a time, Janis Joplin sang "oh Lord, wont you buy me a Mercedes Benz", ranking it up there with a colour television and a "night on the town" as things that she absolutely needed in her life. In 1995, Mercedes embraced the song and added it to their television commercials.

But of course, Mercedes legacy began long before Janis Joplin was even born. Mercedes-Benzs history stretches far back in to the past, until its name becomes synonymous with the invention of the automobile itself. Founding father Karl Benz received the patent number for his "Patent Motor Car" in 1886, which his wife boldly drove two years later, thereby launching Mercedes birth in to the world and on to the stock exchange.

From thereon in, Mercedes cars transformed according to common trends and key players in the companys history at the time. These changes from the rickety three-wheel Benz Patent Motor Wagon to the 2012 A-Class have been wonderfully photographed and documented within a coffee table book to end all coffee table books.

The hefty Mercedes tome covers everything anyone could possibly want to know about Mercedes, from its history to its long procession of cars produced over the years. Each entry is lavishly illustrated by renowned Formula One photographer Rainer W. Schlegelmilch, so that you can flick through the pages and watch motoring history unfolding
