1955-1963 190 SL Roadster

Born one year after the Gullwing the 190 SL rapidly became one of the most coveted dream cars of its day and has turned heads ever since its debut.

Sporty looks and the versatility of both hard and soft tops makes the 190SL Roadster a year round driver that's equally at home nipping around the city or dashing down a country road.

A Resonance of Verve and Grace

From any angle the 190SL is simply beautiful.

Inside the analogue instruments are presented on a minimalist backdrop that leaves room for every chrome piece to breathe. The curves of the cockpit are exquisitely adorned in leather while reflections sparkle in the surrounding glass and mirrors.

Outside the sleek lines and carefully designed accents create the timeless appeal that tames its race car ambitions.

Harmony.
