Description: 1956 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL
No reserve

Titre de circulation autrichien
Châssis n° 1210426502393
Moteur n° 121.921.6502483

- Le parfait roadster pour les rallyes
- Voiture bien suivie et entretenue
- Très belle combinaison de couleur
- Sans réserve

Le cabriolet 190 SL apparaît en 1954 et sera produite jusqu''en 1963, comme sa grande sœur la 300 SL. Sa ressemblance est évidente dès le premier coup d''œil, mais la motorisation compte deux cylindres en moins (quatre) avec un moteur 1,9L de 105 ch., d''origine livré avec deux carburateurs Solex. Bien souvent, la modification en carburateurs Weber double-corps était réalisée, lui offrant un agrément de conduite bien plus nerveux et agréable sur la route.
Le modèle présenté de 1961 a bénéficié de cette amélioration, en plus d''avoir reçu un soin plus qu''attentif à tous les niveaux. Comme nous l''apprend la copie de la Daten Karte de la voiture, elle fut vendue neuve aux Etats-Unis, avant de revenir en Europe au début des années 2000. En 2006, elle fut entièrement restaurée en Allemagne par un spécialiste. Elle n''a depuis connu que deux collectionneurs méticuleux en Carinthie, bucolique région du sud de l''Autriche. Elle est aujourd''hui de teinte grise, capote noire, avec un bel intérieur rouge juste patiné, composé d''une troisième place arrière transversale. Le propriétaire actuel, collectionneur de Jaguar et de Porsche n''a utilisé la voiture qu''à la belle saison.
Le roadster 190 SL possède une cote d''amour très élevée, avec sa ligne si harmonieusement dessinée et sa facilité de conduite dans la circulation moderne.



Austrian title
Chassis n° 1210426502393
Engine n° 121.921.6502483

- The perfect roadster for rallies
- Comprehensive restoration file
- Stunning colour combination
- No reserve

The 190 SL cabriolet appeared in 1954 and was produced until 1963, as was its big sister the 300 SL. Visually, the similarities are immediately obvious, but its engine, with two less cylinders (four), was 1.9-litres with 105 bhp, originally with two Solex carburettors. It was common for twin-choke Weber carburettors to be fitted instead, making it more responsive and pleasant to drive.
This model from 1961 has benefited from this improvement and has received much attention at all levels. As the car''s Daten Karte tells us, it was sold new in the United States before coming back to Europe in the early 2000s. In 2006, it was comprehensively restored in Germany by a specialist. The car has had only two very meticulous owners in Carinthia, a bucolic region in southern Austria. It is today in a shade of grey, with a black hood, and the beautiful red interior features a nice patina and a third, transverse rear seat. The current owner, a Jaguar and Porsche collector used the car only in good weather conditions.
With its beautiful design, the sought after 190 SL Roadster is easy to drive in modern traffic.
