The era

Or what was it actually like in those days?
The Mercedes-Benz 190 SL dates back to the initiative of the then major US importer, Max Hoffman. In 1953, he asked the management of Daimler-Benz for a production version of the 300 SL "Gullwing" – a car that was hitherto only available as a pure race car - and also for a less expensive version of the 190 SL. Both variants were then developed and production-ready in record time. The 190 SL was first delivered in the spring of 1955. As a design icon of the fifties, it was a great success, until production ceased in 1962.

The condition

The vehicle is currently being restored.

The performance

Or what is it like to drive?
It looks very elegant and is fully functional - a classic, valuable collector's item. However, you can also spontaneously fall in its cognac leather seats and drive off in a flash, whether to the local coffee shop or on holiday! The rock-solid engineering and suitability for everyday use make this possible. With its design and colour combination it attracts attention: from any side and any angle you look at it, whilst stationary or in motion, if you like profiles, you cannot resist turning your head.
