The era

Or what was it actually like in those days? 
In the fifties, the economic miracles began in Germany. Wealth was announced - they wanted to afford something again. Therefore, higher-value vehicles could now be offered on the German market. At the same time, the important US importer Hoffmann expressed the urgent desire to expand the market with attractive sports car models in a legendary Mercedes board meeting. In this situation, the board spontaneously decided to develop and offer new sports car models. It was the birth of the 190 SL series which was presented in 1954 in New York. The abbreviation SL stands for Sport Leicht and was in itself the attribute of the 300-series. The use SL for the 190-series was to enhance the series. In brochures, however, more aptly the term touring sports cars was used. A total of 25,881 copies were produced.

The condition

Or how it really is.
The vehicle was completely restored in 2013. An extensive photo documentation is available. The 190 presents itself visually and technically on the highest level. With its current mileage of 2030 km after the restoration, it presents itself in a new condition. An individual valuation report and the Mercedes-Benz data card are available. Or how it realy is.

The performance

Or what is it like to drive?
With its Exterior in tobacco brown, Interieur in beige leather, it looks very elegant and harmonious - a feast for the eyes and a classic collector's item. You can always fall into his flattering leather seats and start despite his proud age of 61 years on the spot, whether to the baker or in sunny climes, the rock-solid technology and practicality make it possible and it still captivates everyone today. And to the optics only so much: From which side and with which viewpoint one looks at it in the state or in ride, who likes forms, can not escape this sight. This applies to the open vehicle and also with the roof closed.
