1961 MERCEDES-BENZ 190SL ROADSTER

History of the 190SL

As the brainchild of legendary European car importer Max Hoffman, the first Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster was designed to serve as a more lifestyle-oriented complement to the outlandish 300SL Gullwing Coupe. Hoffman bet on the racing-oriented gullwing’s curvaceous shape, allowing both the hardtop coupe and the subsequent roadsters to share a design language that was unique to the Stuttgart automaker in the early 1950s. Both the six-cylinder 300SL and four-cylinder 190SL models were marketed, but the less expensive latter vastly outsold its “big brother,” proving that Hoffman’s knack for success was unparalleled among automobile importers. Both the 190SL and the 300SL were virtually identical cosmetically in roadster form and thus gave birth to the legendary SL class of Mercedes-Benz models!

The stunning 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster featured here is finished in the gorgeous factory correct color combination of black over a red leather interior and matching black folding convertible top.

HISTORY OF THE MERCEDES-BENZ 280SE
Mercedes-Benz’s elegant Paul Bracq-designed W111 made its debut in 1959 and was produced, in its many variations, through 1971. Among the most desirable variations were the two-door models—the 280 SE Cabriolet and Coupe—which were expensive, virtually hand-built automobiles in the great tradition of German craftsmanship. The acres of wood trim throughout the interior were all genuine solid hardwood, accented by the gentle use of brightwork; the leather upholstery was thick and comfortable; and both the ride quality and handling were (and continue to be) superb. Perhaps unsurprisingly, these cars rapidly became favorites of international socialites and celebrities, and they were frequently seen cruising in all of the world’s most posh destinations.

History of the 300SE
The 300SE, internally known as the W112, was first introduced in 1961 as a sedan. The new model wore the same body style that was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1959. Exterior improvements for the new model included wider chrome trim on the sides in addition to the wheel arches. Under the hood the M189 3.0 liter inline-6 fitted with Bosch mechanical fuel injection produced 160 horsepower. A state of the art pneumatic air suspension system was utilized (the same system later used in the 600 Grosser) while 4-wheel disc brakes ensured adequate brake performance. Coupe and convertible models were introduced in 1962 and examples built after January 1964 gained an additional 10 horsepower. Selling at nearly twice the price of a 200 series model, the 300SE was the most expensive “standard” Mercedes-Benz of the early 1960’s, with the exception of the 600 Grosser that was first offered in 1963. The quality, comfort and performance meant that the 300SE was a frequent sight at some of the most exclusive destinations on the planet.

As one of the first post-war Mercedes-Benz models, the 220 was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in April 1951. The 220 featured the return of the inline 6-cylinder engine, which displaced 2.2 liters (hence the 220 nomenclature) and provided an ample 80 horsepower. Styling was similar to the pre-war 170 though the headlamps were now fully enclosed by the front fenders. The modern front end was longer and interior furnishings were more lavish. The overhead camshaft inline-6 was mated to a column shifted synchronized 4-speed manual transmission which did provide (and still does today) a lively driving experience. Top speed was nearly 90 miles an hour and it could reach 60 miles per hour in 20 seconds from a full stop. The 220 was offered in two different cabriolet options, the sporty Cabriolet A and the stylish Cabriolet B which offered comfortable seating for four. With undeniable style and ample performance, the 220 marked Mercedes-Benz’s return to form after World War II by offering luxury for the whole family while providing the level of performance that resonates in the spirit of Mercedes-Benz today – the best or nothing.
