With only 3,306 original miles, this Mercedes-Benz 190E is a homologation dream for any collector!
In the world of rare and exclusive collector cars, homologation specs take the cake as some of the most desirable examples in existence. Shaped by the hands of motorsport engineering, these one-off track cars were originally designed to follow exact rules and regulations that would allow them to compete in race events. These guidelines included a specifically-numbered production series, offering tuned down versions with full interiors to the public for legal road use.
One of the most iconic homologation examples is the Mercedes-Benz 190E Evolution II, developed in the early 90s for the DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen-Meisterschaft) race series. The luxury automotive professionals at Marshall Goldman Beverly Hills are excited to present this immaculate 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E Evolution II as part of its extensive inventory of highly-desirable exotic cars.
Finished In Factory Blue-Black Metallic
This incredibly rare 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II was originally shipped to Japan as a new car because the United States never received any of the 502 chassis produced. This spec features a sleek Blue-Black Metallic finish from the factory, accentuating the extra standard aerodynamic body components that make it a road-legal race car. Additionally, a set of DTM-specification OZ Wheels were sourced and added, which are absolutely impossible to find today.
Black Leather Interior With A Full Roll Cage
Inside the driver-oriented cabin of the 190E EVO II is a track-inspired layout that focuses on safety and performance. A black roll cage welcomes you as you step inside, with two black leather bucket seats, a harness system, and a series of ignition switches completing the factory racecar feel. An Alcantara sports steering wheel and exposed carbon fiber trim accents demonstrate the attention to detail when engineering these early 90s performance cars.
2.5L Cosworth In-Line 4-Cylinder (232hp/181ft-lb)
In an effort to create a car as close to the 1992 Evo II DTM Series winning racecar, the previous Japanese owner spared absolutely no expense in creating this astounding motorcar. At incredible cost, and sourced through Mercedes-Benz DTM when possible, a Racing Exhaust Manifold, Full Exhaust, Intake Manifold, Custom Header Tank, Individual Throttle Bodies, Larger Injectors, Lightweight Aluminum Pulley, Fuel Cell System, and a MoTec Engine Management System, Chassis Bracing, Brembo Monobloc Brakes, and larger Suspension Links were all added to the car. The 190E Evo II’s factory Cosworth 2.3-Liter In-line 4-Cylinder was bored out to generate 232 horsepower and 181 foot-pounds of torque. This exceptionally rare 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II from Marshall Goldman Beverly Hills is currently available for $569,900.
