La belle 190SL (Mercedes 190SL)

On a recent trip to Paris we noticed this stunning Mercedes 190SL parked outside the famous ‘Les Deux Magots’ cafe.  The 190SL is often overshadowed by its big brother the 300SL which has a bigger engine, better brakes and more sophisticated tubular space frame construction.  However, in this setting, none of that matters, its ‘time warp’ condition and the striking white coachwork make it a perfect fit against the backdrop of crisp Parisian architecture. In a city built upon cafe culture, high fashion and fine dining this 190SL is in its element and would make the ideal car for cruising around town.  If you’re thinking of driving something this stylish you’d better make sure your outfit doesn’t let it down!
