1989 Mercedes 190 Evolution,AMG Powerpack,72,902 miles For Sale

Offered for sale is this true road going Mercedes-Benz homologation racing special from the 1980's,known as the 190 Evolution,only 502 were built all in LHD to allow the cars to compete in the 1990 German DTM season.The cars weighed 1040kg's in full racing trim and produced 330bhp at 8700rpm.This fully documented road version complete with its very rare original AMG engine build documentation and running in papers along with detailed service history records is presented in exceptional conditon throughout with great provenance. Originally supplied new to Mercedes-Benz,Duesseldorf to its original German buyer and spending the first two years of its life in Germany before being specially exported to Japan where it resided with a Japanese collector who lavished it with a money no object maintenance plan with amazingly detailed service records present.Having spent the vast majority of its life being driven and kept in a humid salt free climate it has survived to this day in remarkable condition.To complete the cars journey it was purchased and re-exported back to the UK by us where it now resides in Warwickshire,UK. The Evo I featured a new larger rear adjustable spoiler along with increased front and rear track incorporated into a wider body and deeper front air-dam which helped increase downforce,front inner wings were enlarged to allow the cars to run 9x18"racing wheels and tyres.A smaller 1L washer bottle was then mounted.In total 15 body body modification were carried to allow the larger race wheels and tyres to be fitted.The already excellent multi-link MB rear suspension was enhanced with 23% stiffer spring rates & matched shock absorbers compared to the standard 2.5-16's & included SLS suspension to each wheel, providing improved ride & control.The Evo1 is also the lighter of the two Evolution models weighing 1320 kgs compared to 1340kgs of the Evo2 model. The Evo I's output was similar to the 202 bhp of the "regular" 2.5-16 but was equipped with a re-designed engine of similar capacity but with a squarer bore & stroke (97.3 / 82.8) to allow for higher rev limits & power in racing applications. On these production models the rev limit was set at 7250 rpm compared to the 7000 rpm of the "cooking" 16V's. Additional changes to engine design included: " lightened rotating masses, improved lubrication and altered camshaft timing ". Cosworth also listed a project code "WAC" for the development of the short-stroke Evolution engine. This car is fitted with the Power Pack engine option,engineered and developed by AMG which was available separately for the considerable sum of DM 19,000. This expensive (& subsequently very rare) option included longer duration & higher lift camshafts, a larger throttle body, more aggressive ignition and fuel management as well a beautifully crafted tubular exhaust manifold & stainless steel exhaust system. With these improvements, power increased to 225 bhp @ 7200 rpm & Torque at 240 Nm at 5500 rpm. The rev limit was further raised 7,700 rpm. 0-100 km/h (62 mph) via the Getrag dogleg gearbox was dispatched in 7.1 sec. AMG Powerpack equipped models were quoted to give a top speed of 236 kmh (146 mph). The gearbox was a Getrag 275Z, as fitted to all Cosworth models. This featured a dog-leg 1st gear position, meaning 2nd would be where first usually is - useful with 1st only required to move off from standstill. This had the effect of making gear changes faster between 2nd & 3rd; the speeds used most on twisty country roads. 5th gear was a direct 1:1 drive. For improved acceleration, the LSD's differential final-drive ratio was now 3,46:1 instead of 3,27:1, meaning gear ratios were closer spaced too. Brakes from the R129 SL were fitted with front disc measuring 300mm front & 278mm rear, Standard deeper dish Evo 1 wheels were manufactured by Fuchs & fitted with Conti Sport contact tires 225/50/16. Exterior paintwork is in exceptional condition with no pin dents,arrow straight flanks with no scratches or prior accident or rust repairs. A lack of stone chips, serves to indicate this car wasn't driven hard, either. Brightwork on the roof & window frames isn't faded, which serves to indicate the car hasn't had heavy exposure to UV over the years. Original unmarked 16" Evo1 alloy wheels are in perfect condition fitted with new Avon tyres.Underside has no corrosion whatsoever,this is testament to this car never having been used in winters during it's entire life. Interior is in beautiful condition and includes the original fire extinguisher, torch and first-aid kit, all of which are unused. The hifi is a period-looking Clarion unit (USB compatible) but we have also included a period original hifi, for originality. Fitted floor mats are by Yanase, appointed MB importers for Japan. This car hasn't been smoked in, so it has that characteristic MB leather interior smell. Sunroof works perfectly too. The boot area remains presentable and the original Evolution I spare wheel remains unused - complete with a complete & unused tool kit, jack & warning triangle mounted on the boot lid. The car has received alot of loving care since arriving to the UK as we are genuine Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts,an extensive pre-delivery inspection has been carried out along with a major service to include engine oil and filter,airfilter,spark plugs,ZH-M fluid flush for the 3-stage ride height adjustable suspension which this car fully retains.Renew gearbox oil.Replace Aux drivebelt.Drain and flush coolant and replace radiator.Upon our original test drive of the car we detected a very slight whine form the diff,some might dismiss this and live with it but being perfectionists and wishing to do things the right way the diff was was removed and with close help from Mercedes-Benz UK who have been fantastic a new correct oe Evolution1 3;46:1 crown and pinion gear was sourced and fitted at great expense from Mercedes-Benz Classic Germany,stamped with the correct Evo1 part number,the result is a silent LSD with perfect power transfer to the rear wheels,just as it would have been when it left the factory. The 190 Evolution AMG is one of the best drivers cars ever produced,the handbuilt and blueprinted AMG Powerpack engine feels strong and hungry for revs and the induction noise along with the sound from the Gruppe full titanium exhaust is sublime and from the first corner this car feels very special indeed,steering is wonderfully weighted providing all the feedback you could want with the chassis feeling light on its feet and eager to change direction and make progress.Ride is compliant yet remaining taut and direct giving plenty of feedback combined with strong grip.The Getrag dogleg gearbox feels strong and rifle bolt precise and once use to the racing pattern becomes second nature to use,a true delight to drive. ***Please see our website for a full YouTube video review of this car by JayEmm on Cars*** Available to view in the UK at our Warwick based workshop by appointment only.Fully insured and covered delivery is also available to anywhere in mainland Europe.Please ask for a quotation.
