It isn’t often that an Evolution model 190E comes up for sale. We usually notice when one does. With only 502 of these produced, to meet DTM homologation requirements, you are not going to see one on the street except for special occasions.
These cars show how Mercedes 190s can compete in the collector car market with BMW E30 M3s, just as they competed in the marketplace and track when new. While the E30 seems to have the marketplace edge right now, prices of the Cosworth engined 16 valved 190s continues to rise. The Evolution models being the absolute top dog.

The sporty car is pushing 235 horsepower out through the race setup 5 speed for plenty of fun. Any car that has an engined designed by Cosworth and that, while not an AMG model, has been breathed on slightly by them to boost output is a good thing. The difficulty with an Evo 2 is that those not in the know may think you have boy racered your Mercedes due to the wild factory body kit. The massive fender flares might get overlooked, though not likely, but the absolutely nuts rear wing will not get missed. This piece is not for looks, but gives the car its low coefficient of drag.
This particular car is located in Hungary and looks to be near factory fresh. The seller doesn’t provide a whole lot of description or particularly high resolution photos. It looks to be well taken care of as it comes with the original window sticker and service history.
These are basically collector cars in any condition, but this one appears to be a high grade example. It isn’t clear what the seller is looking to get for the list. The first time it was listed bidding ended at $62,000 so it must be somewhere north of that. They don’t come much rarer than this for factory Mercedes from this era so certainly an investment opportunity.
