Designer: Paul Bracq
In 1957 Paul Bracq went to Daimler-Benz after he had finished his military service. His first major project was the Mercedes-Benz 600 (W100) designed with Bruno Sacco and launched in 1963. Bracq had already been busy, and helped to turn the 'fintail' 6-cylinder W111 into the 220S and 220SE coupe with tamed fins. Also launched in 1963 was the Mercedes-Benz 230 SL 'Pagoda' (W113) which Bracq designed, although its characteristic concave roof hardtop was probably designed by Béla Barényi. In 1968 the W114 and W115 saloons were launched as the entry level Mercedes-Benz designed by Paul Bracq, although at the launch he had already left Stuttgart. In 1967 Bracq went to France to help design the TGV train. He joined BMW in 1970 and designed the E12 BMW 5-series, E21 BMW 3-series, BMW 6-series, and a gullwing concept car that predated the later M1 Coupe. In 1974 Bracq joined Peugeot and designed the interiors on several models.
