About this car
Two-door luxury roadster also called “the baby 300 SL”, as the two cars look almost identical, but of course, they are entirely different.
In 1955, while their super exclusive 300 SL was on sale, Mercedes Benz needed a more affordable alternative to attract more customers. So was it, the 190 SL was born and just like the 300 SL, the 190 SL was Max Hoffman’s idea. The concept was to offer a no-compromise little sports car that could do a bit of everything.
