1989 Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution I

[ translate ]

Chassis No. WDB2010361F595960
In March of 1989 Mercedes-Benz's already successful 190 E racing program was further enhanced with the introduction of their first Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft (DTM) homologation special. The Evolution I was built to satisfy DTM requirements compelling the road going homologation cars to have the same external dimensions as the race cars. The Evo I was given a wider track compared to the standard 2.5-16, a larger wing, sumptuous fender flares that struggle to contain the enlarged SL-derived alloy wheels, and 500 E brake calipers. The original 190 E 16-valve engine employed a newly designed Cosworth cylinder head to create more power to take the fight to the doorstep of BMW's Motorsport division. This 190 E is equipped with a different configuration of the 2.5-liter “M102” engine, now utilizing a dual row timing chain, shorter piston stroke, and bigger bore, resulting in an increase in reliability and a faster revving motor.
AMG, the well-known, independent performance Mercedes-Benz tuner secured their first official partnership on track with Mercedes the previous year, releasing an upgrade kit for the 190 E Evo I dubbed the “AMG Power Pack.” Featured on this 190 E; The performance upgrades brought the engine closer to the racing variants; offering improved intake and exhaust camshafts, a larger diameter throttle body as well as an improved intake and exhaust system, increasing the power from 201 to 231 horsepower at a maximum of 7,600 rpm.
All Evolution models were finished in 199 U Blue Black, a color that used over 20 different components ranging from flat to metallic layers resulting in a chromatically shifting hue depending on the lighting. The interior with Recaro seats, features heavy bolstering on all four seats, powered seat controls on the door panels and seat warmers. This Evolution I is additionally offered with the following options: electric sliding roof, rear mounted loudspeaker, rear headrests, and seat heaters. Furthermore, chassis number 595960 benefits from recent service in November 2023 courtesy of Van Mossel Mercedes-Benz in Roeselare, Belgium encompassing new brake pads, hoses, battery, and an oil and filter change among other items. For Mercedes-Benz, the Evolution I represents the turn in the tide in the racing circuits of Germany, paving the way for a decade of DTM domination from Stuttgart. For those fortunate enough, the Evolution I, especially one with the rare AMG Power Pack upgrade, represents a chance to sample the delights of a road-legal, homologated Mercedes touring car not often found in the United States.
