The high-performance 190 E 2.3-16 was debuted September 1983. The Cosworth engine was based on the four cylinder 2.3-litre 8-valve 136 hp unit already fitted to the 190- and E-Class series. Cosworth developed the cylinder head, "applying knowledge we've learnt from the DFV and BDA." In road going trim,the 2.3 L 16-valve engine made "185 hp at 6,200 rpm. Acceleration to 60 mph was less than eight seconds, and the top speed was 143 mph. An enlarged 2.5 L engine replaced the 2.3 L in 1988, so the car now delivered 204 bhp
We are told that the current owner acquired the vehicle in 2003, and has had 8 former keepers. It is said to be a good usable classic with no major problems, it drives well and has good history. There is a Sun roof, dog-leg gearbox, heated seats, Alpine CD with extra amplifier, and Full Leather Interior. A well maintained and cherished car that can only appreciate in value.
