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

Or how it really is.
It is a very elaborately restored automobile. During the restoration special emphasis was placed on the original specifications of the manufacturer. The result is a vehicle with a new car character. Due to the special restoration services, this vehicle stands out clearly from the normal old-timer market as well as from the other classic cars with state mark 1 "mint condition".  The work carried out is extensively documented by photos. The Mercedes-Benz data card and an individual valuation report are available.

The performance

Or what is it like to drive?
Reliable, functional, suitable for everyday use, easy to maintain, comfortable, shapely, exciting and stable in value - these are the attributes that spontaneously pervade your mind when you look at the design icon 190 SL from Mercedes-Benz. But you can also spontaneously for a leisurely coffee ride or to more distant resorts. The proverbial Mercedes quality, the high practicality and good handling make it possible. There is also no need to worry about maintenance requirements and possible maintenance measures, since the spare parts supply is well secured and there are plenty of workshops with experience in the maintenance and servicing of the 190's. He is certainly a valuable collector's item in his frame data. Due to the the first-class condition he certainly has potential for value increases.
