Only 500 units of the Evolution model were ever produced for homologation in compliance with DTM rules. In March 1990, at the Geneva Auto Show, the 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II was shown. With the success of the first Evolution model, this model’s 500-unit production was already sold out before it was unveiled. The “Evo II” included the AMG PowerPack fitted to the short-stroke Cosworth built 2.5L engine, a Getrag 5-speed manual gearbox that featured a ‘racing’ gear pattern with ‘dog-leg’ first gear, as well as a full SLS suspension allowing vehicle ride height to be adjusted. An obvious modification to the Evolution II is a radical body kit with a large adjustable rear wing, rear window spoiler, and Evolution II 17-inch wheels. The kit served an aerodynamic purpose—it was wind tunnel tested to reduce drag to 0.29, while at the same time increasing downforce.
We present #357 of this limited production classic.
