Mercedes-Benz 190SL 1956

General description : The beautiful Mercedes 190 SL is a two door convertible launched in 1955. Built on a shortened saloon platform, the styling and engineering of the car is inspired from the iconic 300 SL. Powered by a peppy twin carb 4 cylinder straight engine which was derived from the 6 cylinder 300SL, this vehicle provides the driver a most enjoyable ride.
 
This particular car is beautifully presented in the classic Mercedes colour combination of Silver with Red interior, which enhance the elegant lines of this roadster. Delivered new to its first and we believe only family owner in California in 1956 via Max Hoffman, the US importer for Mercedes, this car spent most of its life under the sunny and dry American West Coast climate. In 2009, the last owner took the car to Italy where it has been thoroughly refurbished mechanically and cosmetically. In 2010, the car obtained the very desirable FIVA Card, the passport for entering this Mercedes to exclusive internationnal events.
A thorough road test reveals a very together car, with a responsive engine, strong servo-assisted brakes and positive steering, which will give its new owner a superb driving experience as well as a sound investment opportunity, at a fraction of the price of a Mercedes 300SL Roadster.
 
Bespoke financial arrangements are available to assist in the purchase of this car.

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.
