1989 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution I


The Evolution 1 was the answer to the BMW M3 Sport Evolution, with new spoilers and wider wheel arches. Many changes were made to brakes and suspension, with full SLS (self levelling suspension) allowing the vehicle ride height to be adjusted from a 3-position interior switch. This beautiful “Blau Schwarz (199U)” Evolution 1 (number 200 of 500) was built in March 1989 and delivered through the official dealership Fahrzeug-Werke Lueg Gmbh in Bochum, who serviced the car from 1989 until 2000, after which it was stored before a recent mechanical overhaul by its second owner. This very well sorted Evolution I has recently benefited from a complete and thorough service and check up with an official dealer, and is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.

First registered to Bremen on 28th March 1989, this rare Evolution was finished in Blue/Black metallic with a black leather interior and a number of factory options. Owned by a UK-based enthusiast since 2001, the Evo I is in good condition condition in all respects, and is supplied with invoices for maintenance over the years to the tune of £12,000, in addition to a UK MoT certificate and UK V5 document.

With just 90,000 kilometres recorded this is a very sensibly priced example of an increasingly rare and desirable homologation special.
