To be offered by Silverstone Auctions as part of the live online ‘Silverstone Classic' sale from 11:00am BST on Saturday 1st August 2020. Please see the Silverstone Auctions website for full details of how to book an appointment to view between 16th to 30th July and register to bid. Lot No. 606 - 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution I AMG Power Pack Estimate: £80,000 - £90,000 (Buyers Premium 12.5% + VAT) One of believed 30 cars with the AMG Power Pack option fitted. - Supplied new in Germany in 1989 as one of believed 30 AMG Power Pack-engined cars - Just 502 Evolution I were built as homologation cars for the 1990 DTM season - Only 117,000km (73,073 miles) warranted and the car presents as it should - This rare car spent time in Japan before being registered in the UK in 2016 by our vendor - Extensive service history and official paperwork confirming the AMG engine - Matching numbers and benefiting from thorough maintenance from new and recently serviced - Evos are extremely capable and the factory-fitted AMG engine in this car makes it very special. With the debut of the BMW M3 Sport Evolution, the 190 E's direct competitor, it became obvious that the 2.5-16V model needed a boost in power in order to achieve better performance than its competitor. In March 1989, the 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution debuted at the Geneva Auto Show. The Evo I, as it came to be called, had a new rear spoiler and wider wheel arches. Many changes were made to under-the-skin components such as brakes and suspension. The car featured an adjustable suspension system allowing the ride height to be adjusted from an interior switch. All were intended to allow the Evolution cars to be even more effective around a track. The Evo I's power output is similar to the 202 hp of the "regular" 2.5-16. However, it had a redesigned engine of similar capacity but most importantly, a shorter stroke and bigger bore which would allow for a higher rev limit and improved generation of power. Additional changes stretch to improved rotating mass, improved lubrication system along with improved cam timing. Only 502 units of the Evolution model were produced for homologation in compliance with the DTM rules, all finished in “Blausschwarz” or blue-black metallic with black leather interior. For those customers desiring even more performance, a Power Pack option engineered by AMG was available for DM 18,000. The PowerPack option included improved camshafts, a larger diameter throttle body, more responsive ignition and fuel management system as well as improved intake and exhaust systems. The net result was an increase in power by 30 hp over the standard car bringing the total to 232 hp. This incredibly rare car left the factory straight to AMG who upgraded the engine with the Power Pack option and in 1989 it was supplied by Mercedes-Benz, Duesseldorf to its original German buyer. Spending the first two years of its life in Germany the car was exported to Japan where it resided with a Japanese collector. Our vendor purchased the car in 2016, imported it into the UK and registered it with the DVLA. As a Mercedes-Benz enthusiast, he continued the maintenance and servicing works carried out by previous owners, all of which is documented in the extensive history file. Showing some 117,000km or 73,073 miles, at the time of cataloguing, the car presents exceptionally well. The history file includes the aforementioned service book and a letter from Mercedes-Benz confirming the car’s AMG Power Pack option and matching numbers status. Further documentation includes extensive invoices, an MOT certificate valid until September 2020 and a V5c.
