The Mercedes-Benz 190E Evolution 2 is not the completely surprising further development of the successful 190E Evo 1. Whilst the 190E Evo1 had to do with 205 Hp of the 290E 2.5 16V, the Evo 2 had a pleasing 235 Hp. The 190E Evo 2 with its more aggressive looks was not just a stunner to see, it also became a great sales success. Mercedes-Benz sold all 500 in one day! Looking back the Evo 2 illustrates nicely how the DTM would develop in the 90’s. Whereas in the 80’s it was enough to fit a juicy engine in a… standard body. The 90’s sounded a new era in. A time when the car became more and more advanced and wilder looking. Over the years they became a lot less in looks like the streetcars they were based on, a development that continues unstopped to this very day. Not only was the evolution from Evo1 to Evo2 about more power and a larger bodykit. Mercedes-Benz had done its homework in the wind tunnel thoroughly. The Evo 2 managed 1st,2nd &3rd place in the 1991DTM. It was rumoured that BMW then had to adjust its wind tunnels to research the effect of larger rear spoilers better. A lesson that Mercedes-Benz had already learnt to its advantage. This specific Mercedes-Benz 190E Evo 2 has been in the same hands for the last 15 years. During this time the car’s speedometer has gone up from 150,000 to 219,000 km. The Evolution models were clearly something different, as Mercedes-Benz could not assemble these cars on the normal 190E production line. Hand-building them was therefor the only option available and that quality build still shows today. The car still feels nearly as solid as the day it left the factory. This Evo 2 shared the garage with an Evo 1, clearly the possessions of a dedicated enthusiast. The picture of an enthusiast’s car is exemplified by the large file of invoices and other documentation and that the car is in a neat condition. Finally the we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this car has been well used, supporting our contention that the owner was a true enthusiast. The bodywork is in a well-used but neat shape with original correctly aligned body panels showing some signs of wear. The “Blauschwartz” metallic paint is neat for its age but also shows some signs of use. The original splitter is included. This specific example is very special. The first 10 examples of the Mercedes-Benz 190E Evo 2 were intended for highest placed directors at Mercedes-Benz AG. As this car is number 008/500 we can safely assume that it is an ex Mercedes-Benz directors car. Mechanically the car has always been well-maintained and therefor still runs extremely well. The interior trim is still very neat considering the car’s age and milage, but does show that it has not lived its life under cloth. The fact that the car has been well used over the years, allows you to drive it to your hearts content without the worry of huge further depreciation. In summary, this is a rare opportunity to buy a 190E Evo 2 in such a condition that encourages you to relive old DTM times on the road. In short, a nice and well-maintained EVO 2, not in new condition but well used. A real car for the real enthusiast! Gallery Aaldering is Europe’s leading Classic Cars specialist since 1975!
