Car Description

Transmission: 5 speed manual

Body: Sedan

Trim: COSWORTH

HISTORY:

This Mercedes 190E 2.3-16 is from the private collection of Palm Beach Classics.  It was painted in 2016 and kept as a driver.  The car was recently serviced and there is no mechanical issues.  It is a very strong driver with a solid engine and 5 speed manual transmission.

Brought from Europe this model is hard to find in the US.  If you know your Cosworth, you will see right away that this is a true European model. Today the Coswoth is considered to be the next classic for Mercedes Benz.  They are getting harder to find, in good condition.

We see this car as the next investment car, because if the BMW M3 from the 80’s has reach over $60,000 there is no doubt that the 190E 2.3-16 is going to be next.  Wait and watch….

We welcome inspections, also we can assist with shipping around the world.

Engine

In road going trim, the 2.3 L 16-valve engine generated a maximum power output of 185 hp (138 kW) at 6,200 rpm and 174 lb⋅ft (236 N⋅m) at 4,500 rpm.

The oversquare 95.50 x 80.25 mm bore and stroke dimensions ensured that the car could easily rev up to the 7,000 rpm redline.[15] Acceleration from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) was in less than eight seconds, and the top speed was 230 km/h (143 mph).[15]

US-Specification cars had a slightly reduced compression ratio (9.7:1 instead of 10.5:1), and were rated at 167 hp (125 kW; 169 PS) at 5,800 rpm and 162 lb⋅ft (220 N⋅m) at 4,750 rpm.

16v differences

Due to their performance, the 16-valve cars were different from the other 190 models.

The body kit on the 2.3-16 and 2.5-16 reduced the drag coefficient to 0.32, one of the lowest CD values on a four-door saloon of the time, whilst also reducing lift at speed.

The steering ratio was quicker and the steering wheel smaller than that on other 190s, whilst the fuel tank was enlarged from 55 to 70 L. The Getrag 5-speed manual gearbox was unique to the 16-valve and featured a dog-leg change pattern, shifting down and left for first.

The gear change quality was, however, noted as “notchy, baulky”, criticisms which weren’t leveled at the BMW M3 (E30) which shared the same gearbox. An oil cooler was fitted to ensure sufficient oil cooling for the inevitable track use many of these cars were destined for.

The strictly four-seater interior had Recaro sports seats with strong side bolsters for front and rear passengers. Three extra dials – an oil temperature gauge, stopwatch and voltmeter – were included in the centre console.

The 190 E 2.3-16 was available in only two colors, Blue-Black metallic (Pearl Black in the US), and Smoke Silver, ten for the 2.5-16 Almandine Red and Astral Silver was added.

All 2.3-16-valve 190 models are fitted with a Limited Slip Differential (LSD) as standard. They were also available with Mercedes’ ASD system which was standard equipment on the 2.5-16v.  The ASD is an electronically controlled, hydraulically locking differential which activates automatically when required. The electronic control allows varied amounts of differential lock from the standard 15% right up to 100%.

It is not a traction control system however, and can only maximize traction rather than prevent wheel spin. Activation of the ASD system is indicated by an illuminating amber triangle in the speedometer.

The suspension on 16-valve models is modified from the standard 190 (W201).  As well as being lower and stiffer, it has quicker dampers, larger anti-roll bars, harder bushings and hydraulic Self-levelling suspension (SLS) on the rear.  This allows the rear ride height to remain constant even when the car is fully loaded.

At the inauguration of the new, shorter Nürburgring in 1984, a race with identical cars was held, with former and current F1 drivers at the wheel. A then unknown Ayrton Senna took first place.
