Mercedes-Benz 190 1.8 E Basic
Brilliant Mercedes-Benz 190E 1.8, commissioned by the customer to sell.
In the years 80 of the last century, Mercedes-Benz wanted to move toward a rejuvenating brand image. Why? Because it was found that the average age of the BMW rider was lower than that of the Mercedes-Benz rider. Not much, 1,4 years on average but still enough to take action was found. In addition, BMW already had a model series under the 5 series and Mercedes-Benz under the E-class (the then W123). The result, as expected from Mercedes-Benz at the launch of a new model, had to be stunning. A sporty model with a driving dynamics that fans of Mercedes-Benz were looking for in vain at that time. It was therefore unique to be able to add these characteristics, sportiness and driving dynamics, to the long line brand-CV.
The completely newly developed “Raumlenker” rear axle alone has been developing for 15 years and at the expense of development money, the same thing was developed for a completely new model at that time. No less than 5 suspension arms per wheel were the guarantee of optimal road contact under both sporty and comfort-oriented excursions. Initially delivered with the improved 2 liter engine with carburetor or Bosch KE-jetronic injection system and later extended with the 2.3, 2.6, 2.3-16 engine variants with petrol as a consumer and 190D, 190D 2.5 and 190D 2.5 turbo as diesel variants. For the sports top model 190E 2.3-16, we sought to work with the English Cosworth, manufacturer of sporty cylinder heads and dito engines.
