The Life L190 is a Formula 1 single-seater entered by the Italian Life Racing Engines team in the 1990 Formula 1 World Championship. It was powered by two engines: the curious Rocchi 12-cylinder in W and the Judd 8-cylinder in V The single-seater is driven by Australian Gary Brabham for the first two races of the season, then by Italian Bruno Giacomelli for the remainder of the championship.

Italian engineer Gianni Marelli brought the First L189 chassis up to Formula 1 standards, which was renamed Life L190. The chassis-engine coupling took place in February 1990, a few weeks before the start of the season. The L190 has a carbon shell of a W12 engine mated to a longitudinal gearbox. The front suspension is pushrod and the combined shock absorbers are arranged on the awning. The rear suspension is also tie rods and the units are installed vertically alongside the gearbox.

The L190, inspired by the narrow-hulled March and Benetton, seems as dangerous to drive as its predecessor with in particular its air inlets at the level of the pilot's shoulders, leaving the latter exposed to shocks.
