car description

The Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II offered for sale here was built in April 1990 and registered in Switzerland in August 1990. It is in a very good and original condition and is still equipped with its original original engine (“matching numbers”). The extensive optional equipment includes the leather trim, the electric sliding roof, air conditioning, outdoor temperature display and thermal insulating glass all around.

Thechnically the car works excellently - very direct stearing, overhauled rear axle and a very smooth running engine. The paint has a nice gloss and comparatively few signs of wear, also the interior knows to convince with a great overall impression.

The engine feels very healthy and fascinates with its unmistakable sound at higher rpm. The gears can be switched smoothly and the clutch has a clear pressure point. The 5-speed manual transmission has the first gear on the bottom left to ensure the most direct change from 2 to 3 (original). 

The air conditioning has its full capacity and all other comfort extras work perfectly. The vehicle has been housed in a collection in northern Germany for many years and has enjoyed a good care and an air-conditioned parking space. It was transferred to Stuttgart on its own axis and managed the long journey without any problems.

Due to the fact that only 502 cars were built, the EVO II was a sought after collector’s item from the very beginning, but it also impresses on the road or on the race track with the DTM charm of the 90s. Due to the reliable technology it is also comparatively suitable for everyday use and easy to maintain – an investment that also provides fun.

History of the series

The EVI II, presented at the 1990 Geneva Motor Show, was designed as a homologation model for the racing touring cars used in the DTM. At first, the EVO II was met with derisive comments which were aimed specifically at its monstrous rear spoiler, among other things. But when the EVO II gave its competitors in the DTM a run for their money and also took victories, the tide turned.

The engines of the DTM touring cars were derived from the engine of the production car. The power of the four-cylinder in-line engine rose to a whopping 373 hp. It was the last DTM power unit designed by Mercedes, as the subsequent development tasks were taken over by AMG from that point on.

Due to the low number of 502 units, the EVO II had a collector's status early on, which also brought an increase in value and is still rising today.

The name EVO II is nowadays a well-known term among ethusiasts.
