Fintail models (W110, W111, W112)

The Fintail body (Heckflosse) was introduced in 1959, finally replacing the aging Ponton in 1961. Mercedes offered both four-cylinder and six-cylinder models. The four-cylinder 190 can be easily identified by its round headlamps, as opposed to the large, vertical units used on the sixes.

The Fintail model, in some books referred to as the Ponton B, was the first car built in series that had a built-in safety zone. The car's interior had many safety features too: all switches were recessed into the dashboard, and handles were constructed to give way in case of an accident. The instrument panel was a new design: the vertical speedometer showed the speed in different colours, yellow for 0-50 km/h, yellow and red stripes for 50-60 and red above 60 km/h.
