Mercedes-Benz 190 Ponton 1960

General description : Nostalgia Classic Cars Dubai has the pleasure to present you a trademark German sedan of the fifties, the 1960 Mercedes-Benz 190. This series of Mercedes-Benz cars was the first series newly developed after the Second World War, and was the best selling model for the company which enabled it to return to its former glory after their factory has been completely destroyed during the war. This model has another important historical significance for Mercedes-Benz, as it's the first model to introduce a ponton-style body with no protruding fenders. The four-cylinder Ponton series was introduced in 1953 as W120 180 Series, with 190 Series joining the range in 1956. The production of the series lasted until 1962, when the model was replaced by the Heckflosse generation.

Coming from 1960, the Mercedes-Benz 190 from our showroom bears the W121 designation and it is finished in classic gloss black paint with factory hubcaps in the same color scheme. Its M121 four-cylinder engine is mated to steering column-mounted manual transmission and it has covered just 59,316 kilometers since new, meaning that this car has been barely driven, thus perfectly preserved. Its posh interior boasts a combination of chrome, rich woodwork and dark red leather, the best-looking color to match its black exterior. Door panels have been finished in diamond stitch pattern and the car also has a custom wooden armrest, adding to the luxurious allure of this classic Benz. Last but not least, the cherry on top of this charming Mercedes-Benz is the panoramic roof, a rewarding feature for carefree cruising through the boulevards.

1960 Mercedes-Benz 190 Ponton is listed for sale on ClassicDigest in Dubai by Nostalgia Classic Cars for $50000.

About Mercedes-Benz
In 1886 Karl Benz built Benz Patent Motorwagen widely regarded as the first automobile. Little did he know this was to be the beginning of the world's most renown premium car manufacturer. -Mind you the venture was financed by his wife Bertha Benz.

Not too far Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft founded by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach, started marketing their car in 1901 using now famous name:  Mercedes (Spanish for godsend), which was chosen after their distributor Emil Jellinek's daughter.

To make a long story short, Daimler merged in 1926 with Benz & Cie., becoming Daimler-Benz and adopting Mercedes-Benz as its automobile trademark

Although deemed by some conservative the truth is actually quite the opposite, Daimler-Benz history is filled with 'firsts': Honeycomb radiator, float carburetor,   four wheel brakes 1924, (although Duesenburg Model A was reported to be sporting them as early as 1922), first diesel powered passenger car in 1936, the Mercedes-Benz 260 D,  first direct fuel injection in the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing (well not really as tiny 2-stroke Gutbrod actually had the first direct fuel injection) )  front and rear crumple zones ie. safety cell by Béla Barényi patented in 1951 and introduced in “Ponton”-models , Anti-Lock Brake system (ABS) was first offered on the W116 450SEL 6.9, first production airbags...and the list goes on.

During its 100+ years Mercedes has produced more than a fair share of iconic cars; SSKL , 710 SSK Trossi Roadster, 770K Grosser, 540K Spezial Roadster, 300SL Gullwing, w100 600 Pullman, w111 280SE 3.5 Flachkühler, w113 230SL Pagoda, w109 300 SEL 6.3, w201 2.3-16 Cosworth to name just a few.

One should not forget the famous Silver Arrows (Silberpfeile) either: W 25, W 125, w154, w165, w196 all of which were more than capable of trashing their opponents on the track.
