Default Paul Bracq

See below for the first part of an excellent article on automotive styling great Paul Bracq. This first part covers his history at Mercedes-Benz and some of his key designs like the W111 coupe cabrio, W108 etc.

There is a part 2 on the same website I have not yet read that covers his career at other companies such as BMW.

Mercedes had quite the Styling department at that time, led by Frederich Geiger of 500K, 300SL, w107 & W116 fame, Bracq as leadstylist (W111c, w108 etc) and the young Bruno Sacco (w126, w201 etc)
