About Bernd S. Koehling

Bernd S. Koehling grew up in the 1950s and 1960s in Northern Germany. His interest in anything automotive started early on visits to the Nürburgring with his father. He grew up with Mercedes cars in his family and his uncle, who had a small collection of pre-war cars, introduced him at the end of the sixties to vintage cars. From the mid seventies he started collecting vintage cars himself. Naturally his first such car was a Mercedes, a rather neglected prewar 170V Cabriolet B. Later additions were from a 200D fintail, 250SE, 300d, 280SE 3.5 Coupe and a 350SL.

Mercedes cars became a passion he has kept and further developed throughout the years.

His other interest is in British cars, here especially Alvis and Jaguar. He had collected an Alvis TC 21/100 Grey Lady Tickford DHC and various Jaguar models. Among them a 420G and a more modern XJ 40 Vanden Plas.

Up to now Bernd has published more than 20 books and ebooks about Mercedes-Benz cars.
