Mercedes Benz 190 SL Roadster 1955-1963
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 basis vehicle
Barn find, produced in 1961
The presented vehicle is what every classic car enthusiast dreams of: The foundation of a first-class classic automobile - a barn find with history. This Mercedes-Benz 190 SL Roadster was delivered in Germany in 1961 in the color combination white / leather red. The original "Pappdeckelbrief" and the original operating instructions are still available today. A rarity, which thanks to the "matching numbers", as well as the small number of previous owners (1st hand) clearly stands out from the regular classic car market.
