Built alongside and sharing many of the iconic styling features of the legendary 300SL Roadster, the Mercedes 190SL combined superb build quality with understated styling and a not insignificant, 104 BHP from the 1.9-litre four-stroke engine. An instant hit, the three-pronged star sparkled amidst the gloom of post-war austerity. The 1955 launch of the 190SL, cemented Mercedes-Benz’s reputation as the car manufacturer for those who wanted elegance, build quality and a decent turn of speed.
This particular Mercedes-Benz 190SL was originally delivered new to Germany. Being a European specification car, it was delivered with the rear child-seat, an option not allowed on the Federal specification cars supplied to the USA.
Recently the subject of an outstanding ground-up restoration, this 190SL is in immaculate condition throughout and drives as well as it looks. Finished in the archetypal combination of Mercedes
Silver Metallic over Mercedes Blue leather interior, the finish of this 190SL is to the very highest level.
The 190SL is the perfect blend of style and build quality and this example is probably one of the finest on the market.
