Franz Klammer, the Austrian Olympic downhill skiing gold medallist, also used the same automobile. Later this version came into the hands of a local racer, Phil Ward. It made him enter several races, which gained a victory in 1990.

The 190 E’s  2.3- liter cross worth engine is modified, to take part in the Australian  2.0L Super touring championship. These changes gave a  classy performance. The car is fully restored to its 1980 version by Andrew Miedeckes. He is the ex-racing driver, who has completed the 1986 Bathurst race in a different 190 E.

This restoration cherished all the racing fans. This comes with the Saloon body type. The white electric sunroof and windows add on the beauty to its exterior. This car powers up with a 1997 cc engine, which affords you an 87,000 miles mileage.

In typical fashion for the Stuttgart firm, Mercedes wanted to prove the 16-valve’s durability as well as its performance. As a result, in  1983, three 2.3-16s ran flat-out for eight days and nights at Nardo’s high-speed bowl in Italy, covering 50,000km at an average speed of 154mph and setting a new world record in terms of speed and the mileage.

To give the 190E enough poke, Mercedes hired the  Cosworth to develop new parts for one of its cast-iron-block four-cylinder engine.

The Northampton engineering firm developed a new head and all the necessary equipment to go with it, to create a twin-cam 16-valve competition engine. Merc’s sober looks, convoluted name, and more refined character made it the most opted by the racers. The people used to call it the ‘homologation special,’ which guarantees a spectacular road car.

The car entices with the same basic chassis as the regular 190E, with its strut and separate spring suspension at the front and multi-link arrangement at the rear. This restored version furthermore gains hydraulic self-leveling rear suspension, driven off a pump at the front of the engine for higher performance.
