W201 Evolution Register
The sixteenvalves of the
W201 series concern an extraordinary series of cars of the
eighties from Mercedes-Benz. The 190E 2.3-16 was not only
the first model with 4 valves per cylinder, it was also
developed for racing and was therefore active in the Deutschen
Tourenwagen Meisterschaft DTM.
The regulations of this
series however required a minimal volume of cars of 500
to homologate changes to the standard car. Therefore in
1989 Mercedes introduced 500 pieces of the 190E 2.5-16 Evolution
to homologate larger engine capacity, bigger rims and more
A year later followed the 190E 2.5-16 Evoluton II of which
the spoiler as well back then as nowadays were provocating.
Even more then the conventional sixteenvalves the Evo's,
which they are called by enthusiasts will be the first Mercedes
cars from their era that have made it to classic.
But, where are these two times 500 pieces?
Some have lived their life on the streets, some in racing.
