1989 Mercdes-Benz 190E 2.5 16v Cosworth For Sale

Hofmann’s are delighted to offer this beautiful and iconic Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5 16v (Cosworth) to market. This particular car is a very rare example being the later 2.5 model with 4 speed automatic transmission, of the 4784 2.5’s produced it is thought somewhere between 170-500 UK cars were sold and of that 35% with the automatic which is better suited to UK roads and driving. Originally purchased brand new from Bradshaw Wedd Mercedes-Benz in Chelsea in June 1989, this car has since covered 135,957 miles and is accompanied by a fantastic service history file. Almost since new this 190 Cosworth was maintained by Tony Montalbano of TM Motors (known in MB circles as being the specialist, specialist!) who subsequently purchased the car personally, he knew both the history of this car and how well specified it had been ordered with options such as :- Astral silver metallic, Electric front seats, full black leather, Outside temperature indicator, Automatic transmission, Cruise control, Air conditioning, Illuminated vanity mirrors, heated seats and fire extinguisher. Underneath this 190 is almost as spotless as the paintwork and is a testament to Mr Montalbano’s fastidious approach to maintaining his car, anything required new has been replaced with genuine Mercedes items. Mercedes wished to take the 190 E rallying, and asked British engineering company Cosworth to develop an engine with 320 hp for the rally car. During this time, the Audi Quattro with its all-wheel drive system and a turbocharged was launched, making the 2.3-16V appear outclassed. With a continued desire to compete in motorsports with the 190, and also now an engine to do it with, Mercedes turned to the DTM (German Touring Car Championship) motor sport series instead. Cars racing in this championship, however, had to be based on a roadgoing model. Mercedes therefore had to put into series production a 190 fitted with a detuned version of the Cosworth engine. This high-performance model was known as the 190 E 2.3-16V. An enlarged 2.5 L engine replaced the 2.3 L in 1988. It offered double-row timing chains to fix the easily snapping single chains on early 2.3 engines, and increased peak output by 17 bhp with a slight increase in torque. For the European market, the car delivered up to 204 hp. As with all our cars here at Hofmann’s the car has undergone a comprehensive pre sales inspection by one of our Mercedes-Benz experienced technicians. For more information or to arrange a viewing please don't hesitate to call one of the Sales team here at Hofmann's. All vehicles supplied through Hofmann's have funding options available, are all warranted and part exchanges welcome.
