— Mercedes Benz 190SL

1955 photograph of Mercedes chief engineer, Walter Häcker, with a model of the soon to be announced new Mercedes Benz sports car, the 190SL.

…plus the original design sketches for this iconic automotive design.


These initial images are followed by the first German brochure from 1956 advertising the Mercedes Benz 190SL.


This model was in production from 1955 to 1963 and I really really want one for Xmas.


Then just enjoy a couple of sublime pics of the car itself.
