Starting with the 190 SL, Mercedes decided to produce a competition-client version of the model. This lightweight version had no windows, the windscreen was replaced with a small racing aeroscreen and the bumpers and roof were removed. The manufacturer built seven or eight examples, but it was only homologated in the GT category with its standard windscreen and hood. In its lightweight configuration it was classified in the " sports series " category, which reduced its chances of success. The 190 SLR project was abandoned although two of the cars continued their racing career elsewhere.
