The 190SL was launched in 1955 having been displayed in New York the year before and along with its similarly styled big brother, the 300SL, it gained high praise and much admiration for its low sleek looks and beautifully styled interior.  Its power came from a new Mercedes engine that displaced 1900cc and had a single overhead cam shaft creating a little over 100 hp which did not make the car particularly sporty but coupled with the fully independent suspension made for a wonderful cruising car.

This particular car was sold new in America where it remained until it was resorted in Arizona by Aventura Motors, then purchased and exported by the current owner 5 years ago.  The car has been finished in white with a dark red interior, which suits the car very well.  During the restoration the famously difficult twin solex carbs were replaced with twin webers so the car has considerably more grunt than before.  The car has recently been serviced and set up by Roger Edwards so it not only looks fabulous but also drives really well.
