Perhaps one of the most impressive qualities of the Mercedes Benz brand is the German automaker’s ability to continuously produce luxury automobiles that appeal to a wide range of buyers. Starting in May 1955, Mercedes was able to produce a sports car that was not only half the price of the very desirable – but hardly accessible – 300SL, but was able to appeal to a clientele that was more interested in a stylish machine than one of performance. With the launch of the Mercedes 190SL, European auto enthusiasts were given the ability to own an instant classic. The 1961 Mercedes Benz 190SL, as well as the other year models produced from 1955 to 1963, was offered in three versions: a roadster, a coupe, and the Tourensports-wagen. The Roadster was the traditional convertible model, while the coupe offered more luxury and the optional removable hard top. The most rare of the versions, the Tourensports-wagen was designed to be a more serious sporting vehicle, was lighter, and was equipped with windowless doors and a fly-screen instead of the windshield.
