Sold: Ç47200

Launched at the 1955 Frankfurt Show, the attractive 190SL roadster looked very similar to the 300SL, but thanks to more modest underpinnings it cost a great deal less. Based on the 180 saloon of 1953 ? Mercedes-Benz's first car to use a unitary construction body/chassis ? the 190SL sported all round coil spring suspension and power assisted drum brakes. Power came from a 1,897cc version of the 180 saloon's four cylinder engine which, via twin Solex carburetors, produced 120bhp at 5,700rpm and 101lb/ft at 3,800rpm. Allied to a four-speed manual gearbox, this endowed the sleek, aerodynamic and comparatively light 190SL with a 115mph top speed and 0-60mph acceleration in a respectable 13.0 seconds.

A more beautifully presented example of this classic and most popular German sports touring car would be hard to find. In its current ownership for over the last twenty years, an eminent medical professional, this is a beautifully restored and presented car, retaining numerous original features, such as its original Solex carburettors. The purity and originality of this car is attested to in the clearest possible form, as the car is the proud bearer of an ASI ORO plaque, the highest that the ASI can award.



╚ sicuramente difficile riuscire a trovare un esemplare di questa classica e famosa berlina tedesca in condizioni migliori di quella che abbiamo il piacere di ammirare oggi. L`attuale proprietario ha custodito per oltre vent`anni questa vettura splendidamente restaurata, con ancora molti particolari originali come i carburatori Solex dell`epoca. Infatti la particolare originalitÓ Ŕ attestata dalla targa ASI oro, il riconoscimento pi¨ alto di cui un`auto d`epoca possa essere insignita.
