It was 1955 when, at the 25th Geneva Motor Show, the definitive version of the Mercedes 190 SL arrived for the first time. Its birth was thanks to Max Hoffman (official Mercedes importer in the USA), who strongly asked for a Roadster inspired by the 300 SL, but less thrust and of medium displacement and therefore also more accessible economically. In the era of the American economic boom, a prestigious model but accessible to the American middle class, such as the Mercedes 190 SL, was just what was needed to motorize the young rampants with good economic possibilities. Of Florida and California. Designed to "be a sports car to be used every day", the 190 SL still demonstrates its ease of driving, its comfort and its proverbial reliability, but behind these innate qualities, there is a refined construction technique and at the same time, solid and reliable, typical of the Teutonic automotive industry. Thus it was that at the end of the 1950s, the dream car was for the first time within the reach of a large public. Over 50% of all its production was exported to the United States, where this roadster has always been appreciated.
Our Mercedes-Benz 190 SL
The proposed model is in excellent condition in the iconic Cement Gray color with a sur ton gray leather interior. The car was partially restored in 2002, as per the invoice of the Carrozzeria Oldauto of Cremona.
The body has no scratches or traces of rust, even the black soft top is free of tears and works perfectly.
The slightly worn gray leather interior helps to enrich the allure of this incredibly fascinating specimen.
The internal instrumentation is original and fully functional. The classic white bakelite and metal steering wheel is a real must, as is the gear knob in the same color.
The engine has been completely overhauled and many of its vital parts have been replaced with new ones, or restored as new. When the front hood is opened, the impact is truly astonishing for anyone, due to the cleanliness and shine of its parts.
The engine is started without uncertainties or drops in power and, on the road, this 190 SL fully demonstrates, even today, its reliability and ease of driving.
An iconic object for any collector, with absolutely stable prices, but towards the top.
