The Mercedes-Benz 190 2.3-16
In the 1980s, Mercedes-Benz wanted to go to a rejuvenating brand image. Why? Because it was discovered 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 enough to take action.

BMW did not have a model range under the 5-series and Mercedes-Benz under the E-class (the then W123) at that time. The result, as was expected from Mercedes-Benz at the launch of a new model, had to be astonishing. A sporty model with a driving dynamics that enthusiasts at Mercedes-Benz were looking for in vain at the 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. Base was the proven 2.3 liter engine, divided over 4 cylinders. The quality and longevity of this combination was tested on the south Italian Nardo circuit, where three team (red-white and green) competed against each other at a long distance. In this case, still unsuccessfully, speed records have been broken with an average speed of 247,9 km/h over the distances 25.000 km, 25.000 miles and 50.000 km.this was the Mercedes-Benz quality proven and this new telg also guaranteed a long life.

The combination with the cylinder head developed at Cosworth and the home styled spindle package made the 2.3-16, after some sporting additions, a real sports saloon. So sporty even that many racing team converted the car into a full-fledged racing car. So fully-fledged even that she took care of the return of Mercedes-Benz in the car sport, and that is in the then royal class DTM. With the 190E 2.3-16 and the later 190E 2.5-16, 190E 2.5-16 Evolution and 190E 2.5-16 Evolution2 race variants, numerous victories have been won in various race leaderboards.

With the so-called EVO2 Mercedes-Benz was champion in the then DTM championship in 1992. The Mercedes-Benz 190 is a timeless and desirable appearance in many variants!
