mercedes model 190

edited November 2017 in General
In 'The lady from Zagreb' , Bernie drives a number of Mercedes 190's. I am not aware of any model 190 in the 1940's manufactured by Mercedes - the first model 190 was built in the 1950's I believe.


  • The prototype 190 VB was produced in 1937 as a prototype front wheel drive 6 cylinder 1.9 litre twin carb 50hp model. Presumably it was intended to be at the top of the range of its style, akin to the 170. There's some photos in the MB archive. I suppose it was MB's technical designer Röhr responding to the new Citroen Traction Avant but never produced. PK would have been better off quoting the 170!
