190SL W121


The Mercedes-Benz W121, commonly known as the 190SL, was a two-door luxury convertible produced by Mercedes-Benz from 1955 to 1963. It was part of the SL (Sport Leicht) series, sharing its iconic design with the more powerful and performance-focused 300SL.

Stylistically, the 190SL exhibited classic lines and a sleek, timeless design, resembling the appearance of the 300SL "Gullwing" but with more accessible performance and a lower price point. It featured elegant curves, a long hood, and a soft-top convertible roof that could be manually operated.

Under the hood, the 190SL was powered by a 1.9-liter inline-four-cylinder engine, delivering adequate power for its time. While it didn't match the sheer performance of the 300SL's renowned straight-six or the later V8 engines, the 190SL's engine provided a smooth and refined driving experience suitable for comfortable cruising rather than outright performance.

The interior of the 190SL showcased a luxurious cabin with high-quality materials, comfortable seating upholstered in leather, and attention to detail in its design. The dashboard featured classic analog gauges, emphasizing simplicity and elegance.

While the 190SL was not designed as a high-performance sports car like its 300SL sibling, it gained popularity for its stylish appearance, comfortable touring capabilities, and Mercedes-Benz's reputation for engineering and build quality.

The Mercedes-Benz 190SL remains a sought-after classic car among enthusiasts and collectors, appreciated for its iconic design, historical significance, and its place in Mercedes-Benz's lineup as a luxurious and elegant convertible of the 1950s and early 1960s.

At present, our inability to furnish pricing online stems from the dynamic nature of global economics, which has led to substantial fluctuations in the costs of parts and materials on a day-to-day basis. The intricate interplay of market forces, supply chain disruptions, and geopolitical factors has rendered pricing incredibly volatile, making it challenging to provide accurate and up-to-date figures in real-time.

As we remain committed to offering fair and transparent pricing to our customers, we find it prudent to ensure that any pricing information reflects the current market reality, hence our decision to refrain from online pricing until we can reliably provide figures that align with the ongoing fluctuations in the global economy.
