It was 1955 when, at the 25th Geneva Motor Show, the final version of the Mercedes 190 SL first arrived. Its birth was a desire of Max Hoffman (official importer for Mercedes-Benz in the USA), who strongly demanded a Roadster inspired by the 300 SL, but less extreme and medium displacement and therefore also less expensive. In the era of the American economic boom, a prestigious but accessible model to the American middle class, such as the Mercedes 190 SL, was just what it took to motorize young people with good economic possibilities. Designed to "be a sport but daily car", the 190 SL still demonstrates today its ease of driving, its comfort, and its proverbial reliability, but behind these innate skills, there is a refined and at the same time solid and reliable construction, typical of German automotive industry.
Thus, it was that in the late 1950s, the dream car was for the first time within reach of a wide audience. More than 50% of all the production was exported to the United States, where this roadster has always been appreciated.
