Description

Excellence on road and rally - Mercedes 190 SL The Mercedes 190 SL is a perfect example of listening to feedback. After the 300 SL was introduced, an American Mercedes importer noticed that while many people were interested, the 300 SL was still too expensive for what most wanted to spend on a weekend car. After a call to Germany, everything went into high gear; later that year the 190 SL (based on the Pontoon) was at the New York show. A year later, the production version was ready in Geneva. Remarkably; not as a sports car, but as a comfortable two-seater. This became a great success; from 1955 to 1963 over 25,000 units rolled off the assembly line in Germany. Our 190 SL is from 1961, the time when smoking and ivory were quite normal, and was brought to the Netherlands in 1994. There the car remained in the family until 2019, after which it went to a Dutch collector. This collector decided to thin out his collection and now we have been allowed to add the 190 to ours. The 190 SL is in good condition, and it has even competed twice in the historic Grand Prix of Zolder. Not for racing fortunately because that is what this one was never intended for, but for strolling. If you want to enjoy comfortably heading to Italy or just along the beach in the Netherlands without having to participate in every stoplight race; then this is the car for you! After all, you don't have to prove anything with this car because, 190 SL.
