1986 Mercedes 190 2.3-16 For Sale in Seattle: Black on Black

If I had half a brain, I’d buy this myself. 2.3-16’s aren’t as valued as e30 M3’s, but they’re clearly gaining value as a result of the surge in values related to those M3’s.

quote from eBay listing:

You will find that this car is not only beautiful but also has excellent racing pedigree. Latest articles/videos (in the past 12 months) on this car seem to indicate that its increasing collectability level is gaining momentum. Sports Car Market’s 2008 Price Guide (printed in Winter 2007) prices this car between $10K-$16K and showing an increase of 13% in the past year. At the rate collector cars are increasing, I would not be surprised if the prices have gone up a bit more during 2008. Just for comparison, I believe there are two 16V models for sale on ebay right now and have buy-it-now prices at $15K.

This particular car looks well looked after with a maintenance binder, original parts included, and appropriate upgrades like European lighting. For $13k, this looks like a sharp buy with a hard to find color combo.

  1. A few months from now (when I have a garage again) this would be VERY tempting. I have always loved these and that color combo is so hard to find in a clean example – so many tan models available.

    For that price it could be a nice investment but I would be tempted to find a diamond in the rough model that didn’t have the upgrades yet for sub $10K.

  2. I agree, there are seemingly very few black or gray ones available for sale. And if you find a diamond for under $10k and you’re not buying it, I get a call 😉
