In 1990, Mercedes with the direct assistance of Cosworth and AMG debuted the highly revised 190E 2.6-16 Evo II. In order to meet DTM homologation requirements 500 units were built, all of which were immediately spoken for and sold before the first examples had even been completed.
The Evo II had a numerous cosmetic and mechanical updates and changes including a radical and fully functional aerodynamics package, an in-car adjustable suspension, improved brakes, bigger 17-inch wheels, and a reworked Cosworth/AMG 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produced an incredible 235 horsepower!
This particular COSWORTH 2.6-16 EVO II was the 401st of 500 examples built and ordered under “Kommission No.” 00 839 01256 for YANASE in Japan. The order was initiated in January of 1990 and the vehicle assembled and completed in May of 1990 at Mercedes Benz's Bremen, Germany production plant. This was a special order/special wish vehicle assembled under non-specified option codes 071 & 199 which was a request for special order “Black/Blue" exterior paint and leather seating front and rear with “Tartan Cloth” inserts. It was otherwise a completely standard COSWORTH 2.6-16 EVO II.
This EVO II is a pristine, single owner from new example with only 58,000 original kilometers (36,000 original miles.) Proper, low mileage, un-modified and un-raced road/homologation examples rarely come up for sale. This particular Evo II is regarded as one of the finest surviving examples known to exist.
This EVO II is sold with full service history and records from new. It is complete with all manuals, books, pouch, and both the original and the extra spare key. All tools, spare rim tire, jack and warning triangle are complete and as delivered new. This vehicle also includes the very rare original Mercedes Benz assembly record as well and is fitted from new with the rare-optioional black-grey-white “Tartan-Cloth” seat inserts and special order “Blue/Black” paint.
