enter If the car was in good condition it would fetch about £150,000 – the record price for a 190SL sold at auction is $209,000 (£164,000), a price achieved in 2015.

Unlike its more illustrious sibling, it had a conventional monocoque chassis, although it had the same suspension.

The 190SL’s 1.9-litre, four-cylinder engine (essentially two-thirds of the 300SL’s bellowing straight-six) developed 120bhp, giving a top speed of 109mph and 0-62mph acceleration in 11sec. As examples of the 300SL now fetch in excess of £1 million, the 190SL is considered an affordable way to experience open-top Mercedes motoring at its finest.
