Stylistically evocative of the mighty 300SL, but with a slightly less complex drive train, the Mercedes-Benz 190SL remains among the most desirable roadsters of its era. The prototype was first shown at the 1954 New York Auto Show, with the 190SL produced between May 1955 and February 1963. The 190SL was sold alongside the faster, more expensive Mercedes-Benz 300SL, similar not just in terms of styling, engineering, and detailing, but also sharing fully independent suspension, double wishbone suspension at the front, and swing axles at the rear. The 190SL was powered by a new, slightly over square1.9 litre straight-four SOHC engine that developed 120hp with twin-choke dual Solex carburettors; the four-cylinder engine block was based on the six-cylinder engine of the 300 SL. Teamed with a four-speed manual gearbox, this endowed the sleek aerodynamic and comparatively light 190SL boasted a top speed of 115mph and respectable 0-60 time of 13.0 seconds. Nicely presented in white with a beige interior, the 190SL we have on offer today is in good overall condition we are told, with good paint and interior. This example comes complete with its matching hardtop and is a great example of the “little brother” of the 300SL which is available at a fraction of the price and are now much sought after all over the world. A timeless classic with beautiful styling, not one to be missed.
