Exact Description of this Specific Motorcar

Originally registered in the US in 1960, the car was generously specced. It came with a Becker stereo, an offside mirror, sun visors, and even a luggage set. It’s presented here in its original colour scheme, albeit restored. 

This particular car was part of a large collection in Kuwait, and underwent a full nut and bolt restoration between 2013 and 2018 in Lebanon. It’s presented in perfect condition, and with all its original components, as evidenced below.

Technical data sheet

The original Mercedes technical data chart shows that every part is present and correct, with matching numbers in all the right places.

The car was registered in the UK in December 2018 with the number plate it has today, and it’s been well looked after during its time here.

Engine and Performance
Its engine, a 1.9-litre DOHC inline four cylinder, shared the 300SL’s 85mm bore, but had a reduced 83.6mm stroke, and came with dual Solex carburettors. As you’d expect, power was reduced from the 300SL, producing 104bhp, less than half of its bigger brother. The result was a more leisurely 13.3 second 0-62mph time and a 107mph top speed. 

Like the 300SL, it came with double wishbone front suspension, and swing axles at the rear, making for a smooth drive. 

Designed more for comfort than speed, the 190SL’s comparative lack of punch isn’t the issue many modern road tests would have you believe. A car more suited to a gentle cruise in exotic locales than haring around race tracks, it’s very much a car to be seen in. That said, its ride does withstand more spirited driving should the mood take you. 

It’s worth noting that it steering and brakes are very much of their time. Its four-speed manual gearbox is a joy to use, twinned with a decently weighted clutch, you’ll find yourself enjoying running up and down the gearbox. 

The 190SL is a wonderful car to experience. Steeped in history, and a joy to be in, few vehicles match it.
