Mercedes-Benz 190SL 1955

General description : In the late 1940s, the US sports car craze spilled over to Europe. The English with MG, Triumph, Austin-Healey, Singer, AC etc. were the first to reach the huge US market. But Daimler-Benz AG also closely monitored this sales market. Thus, from 1952, breathtaking wooden models were created. Finally, in May 1955 it was time: The Mercedes 190 SL came to the market. The Roadster looked racy, but his nature was that of a rock-solid two-seat touring car. And that turned out to be successful, because from 1955 to 1963 at least 25.881 190 SL were delivered. From today's perspective, a small amount. So this classic car is always something special. If you do not use it as a sports car, but as a sporty touring car, it brings a lot of joy on long trips.Our Mercedes 190 SL stems from the first year of construction, with the rare bucket seats and only one sun visor. The car has been extensively restored in Germany and is now ready for the next exit. A long highway in a beautiful landscape is his domain.

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.
