Mercedes-Benz 190SL 1961

General description : The beautiful Mercedes 190SL is a two door convertible launched in 1955. The styling and engineering of the car is inspired from the iconic 300SL. 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 fantastic 1961 matching number Mercedes 190SL spent the first part of its life in the dry climate of California, in the hands of the McCraken family. In 2011, Mary Jane McCraken sold the car to Mr. Martin Martinez of Madrid, Spain. The car then went to the last owner, a gentleman from the Nederlands who commission a total nut and bolt restoration.
 
The chassis, the floor, the engine, the all electrical system, the carburettors, the chromes, the gaskets, the seals, the bodywork, the interior, etc… In fact, every single part of the car. The complete restoration took over 1,200 hours by some of the most specialised craftsmen to bring it into its now, perfect 100 point condition. This car is probably the most beautiful and exclusive Mercedes 190SL in existence. A truly unique car.
 
"La perfection est de ce monde!"

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.
