The car is a bit special, and if I'd had the money to order a new 190E in 1989, this is exactly how I would have ordered it!. Originally a demo for Paton's Mercedes Carlisle, the car was sold to it's owner of 23 years a few months after its registration. Please note, this isn't some "cobbled together boy racer Cosworth lookalike" (it wouldn't be here if it was) but has been done properly by Mercedes themselves, when the car was new.
However, even the best cars of this vintage with bodykits fitted, can hide lots of problems which lurk under the plastic trims, none more so than the genuine 16V (Cosworth) models themselves; I know because I've restored two, and as good as they overtly look, they'll always be something behind those trims. This car was actually very good, however the problems it did have, have been dealt with properly, and much work has gone into this car to bring it to this standard. Pictures of the body work carried out can be found on my information page. I do have to say though, without blowing my own trumpet too much, that I'm extremely pleased with the results.
This is now a very, very nice example of the becoming sought after W201 190E, with the added bonus of a genuine 16v bodykit, which I concede won't be to everyone's taste, but I love it, its so of it's time. This is also a low ownership, properly maintained vehicle, and comes with very comprehensive provenance. As the vehicle has been maintained correctly by very sympathetic owners, it drives superbly, and is one of the quickest 190E 2.0 I've driven in quite some time. Also, the lower stance, means the car is very rewarding to drive and handles corners superbly, however that trademark Mercedes ride hasn't been compromised, and the ride is still both compliant and comfortable.
So, if you're after an excellent W201 190E, that's just a bit special, this one could be for you.
THE MTSV DIFFERENCE
Unlike some, I don’t just simply go out, buy any old car, give it a good clean, then advertise it for more than the purchase price, disregarding any issues the car may have in the hope the new buyer won’t notice…I just couldn’t do that. The cars I source are carefully selected, and I work very hard to ensure that when these cars leave me, I have the satisfaction of knowing they are as good as they possibly can be within the constraints I have. As such, in my 11th year of doing this, I have many repeat customers and a steady stream new customers coming along that have been recommended via word of mouth…this is the ultimate accolade for anyone in business.
Any other questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or on 07976 280738. I'm a firstly and foremostly a true Mercedes enthusiast of many, many years, and a Mercedes Club Member, so it's a pleasure to meet and speak to like-minded people.
Finally, I'm situated in Keighley (pronounced keith-ley), West Yorkshire (Postal Code Area BD21) which is approximately 11 miles from Skipton, and 20 miles West of Leeds.
