1989 MERCEDES-BENZ 190E 2.5-16

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

It may have spent years in the shadow of the Sierra Sap­phire Cos­worth, but the tide of in­ter­est has been turn­ing to­wards its con­tem­po­rary Mercedes ri­val. A ded­i­cated fol­low­ing kept the 190E 2.5-16 and ear­lier 2.3-16 flame burn­ing, but a re­cent in­ter­est up­swing has seen val­ues firm­ing.

This car’s ven­dor (and third owner) bought it when it was three years old then had it re­stored in 2008 by a Ger­man spe­cial­ist. De­scribed as be­ing a no-ex­pense job, the car, which has a new en­gine, has cov­ered 1000 miles since work was com­pleted. The auc­tion­eer ad­vises that there are no ser­vice doc­u­ments but there is SORN pa­per­work. Nev­er­the­less, this a hugely tempt­ing prospect.
