The icon
There are forms that cannot be improved. The Mercedes-Benz 190 SL Roadster (W121 B II) is undoubtedly one of those designs whose perfect proportions continue to inspire even half a century after its production ended. Between 1955 and 1963, this model was considered THE Daimler-Benz sports car. Optionally, the Mercedes-Benz 190 SL was also available as a coupé - with removable hardtop. As the little brother of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, it was intended to approach the prestige of the star model (W 198 Roadster / Gullwing). Enjoyable driving and a sense of freedom: the additional designation "SL" = "sport light" does credit to the intended driving experience. With its 1.9 l (4 cylinders in a row), the driving performance of the "touring sports car" is perfectly tuned for its purposes.

The Mercedes-Benz 190 SL is still known for its striking film appearances, for example in high society, with Grace Kelly with Frank Sinatra as co-driver, or in the story of Rosemarie Nitribitt ("The Rosemarie Girl" with Nina Hoss in the leading role) . Right from the start, the SL has been associated with wealth, beauty, style and class. Even and especially today, the clear lines and the unique design turn the heads of all automobile lovers. Thanks to the solid technology and the excellent driving comfort, it is the perfect companion for your classic car trip.
