1957 Mercedes Benz 190SL

Built with many components used on Mercedes-Benz sedans of the day, the 190SL was the German automaker’s first widely distributed sports car. With production spanning from 1955 to 1963, nearly 25,000 were built with a design that was strongly inspired by the renowned 300SL though its dynamics were slightly changed by the car’s 120 horsepower, four-cylinder engine and shortened R121 frame. The 1957 Mercedes 190SL differentiated itself from other year models as the bumper over-riders on the US version became standard equipment on all models from July 1957. The 190SL was also available as a soft-top Roadster or as a coupe with a removable hardtop. Additional soft-tops were available as well. Another item of optional equipment – which often makes today’s collector cars more valuable – include the sports version for motor racing. This version included lighter doors with a cutout for the arm, stripped away bumpers and a small Plexiglas windshield in front of the driver instead of a windscreen.
