Mercedes-Benz 190SL '62 1962

Allmän beskrivning : The Mercedes-Benz 190SL was a two door grand touring convertible with a removable hardtop. It was produced by Mercedes-Benz between May 1955 and February 1963. A prototype was first shown at the New York Auto Show of 1954.The 190SL was sold alongside the faster, more expensive Mercedes-Benz 300SL, which it closely resembled both in its styling and in its fully independent suspension, with both cars having double wishbone suspensions at the front and swing axles at the rear. However, the 190SL did not use the 300SL's purpose-built tubular spaceframe W198 platform, but was instead built on the shortened monocoque R121 platform, which was modified from the W121 small saloon platform. The 190SL was powered by a completely new, slightly oversquare 1.9L straight-four SOHC engine (Type M121 BII), that developed 105 PS (77 kW; 104 hp) (or 120 gross hp) that earned itself a reputation for not running that smoothly mostly due to the difficulty in properly synchronising the twin-choke dual Solex carburetors, and that, in detuned form, was later also used in the W120 180 and W121 190 models. In fact, the four cylinder engine block of the 190SL was based on the six cylinder engine of the 300 SL. The 85 mm bore was transferred unchanged from the larger engine to the smaller, although the stroke for the 190 SL was reduced from 88.0 mm to 83.6 mm. The car was available either as a soft-top convertible (initially priced at DM 16,500/$ 3,998 or with removable hardtop (DM 17,650/$ 4,295). A nice option to be had was the third-passenger transversal seat that could even fit an adult. In its early life, the 190SL could also be had as a sports-racing model with small perspex windscreen and aluminum doors. In 1959, the hardtop's rear window was enlarged. The 190SL was also referred to as the Nitribitt-Mercedes after the scandal surrounding the murder of the call girl Rosemarie Nitribitt, who owned a 190SL.

om Mercedes-Benz
År 1886 byggde Karl Benz Benz Patent Motorwagen allmänt betraktas som den första bilen. Lite visste han det var att vara i början av världens mest kända biltillverkare. -Mind Du satsningen finansierades av hans hustru Bertha Benz.

Inte alltför långt Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft grundades av Gottlieb Daimler och Wilhelm Maybach började marknadsföra sin bil 1901 använder nu kända namn: Mercedes (spanska för skänk från ovan), som valdes efter deras distributör Emil Jellinek dotter.

För att göra en lång historia kort, Daimler fusionerades 1926 med Benz & Cie., Blev Daimler-Benz och anta Mercedes-Benz som sin bil varumärke

Även anses av vissa konservativa sanningen är faktiskt tvärtom, Daimler-Benz historia är fylld med "firsts": Honeycomb radiator, float förgasare, fyra hjulbromsarna 1924, (även om Duesenburg Model A rapporterades att idrottsliga dem så tidigt som 1922 ), första dieseldrivna personbilar 1936, Mercedes-Benz 260 D, första direkt bränsleinsprutning i Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing (väl inte riktigt så liten 2-takts Gutbrod hade faktiskt den första direkt bränsleinsprutning), fram och bak deformationszoner ie. säkerhetscell av Béla Barényi patenterades 1951 och introducerades i "Ponton" -modellerna, Anti-bromssystem (ABS) erbjöds först på W116 450SEL 6.9, första produktions krockkuddar ... och listan kan göras lång.

Under sina 100 + år har Mercedes producerat mer än en skälig andel av ikoniska bilar; 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 för att bara nämna några.

Man får inte glömma de berömda Silverpilarna (Silberpfeile) antingen W 25, W 125, w154, w165, w196 som alla var mer än kapabla att kastar sina motståndare på banan.
