Rare collector’s car: Mercedes 190 E 2.3-16 on eBay
Of course, after four decades, the car also has a few kilometers under its belt: 229,800 km, to be precise. However, this is not a problem for a Mercedes engine. But what else does the year of manufacture tell us? That’s right, it belongs to the first series and is even more popular than its younger relatives.
Condition: The 190 E 2.3-16 has only minor defects
Repairs: Many parts were renewed in 2021
It is evident in every detail that this is a lovingly maintained garage car. The paintwork was also completely renewed in 2016 — in the same color as when it was first delivered.
Interior: The Baby Benz shines here too
And the interior also looks very neat in the pictures. The dashboard area and the rear seats have no scratches or blemishes. Only unavoidable seat creases can be seen in the leather of the seats. Unfortunately, the offer does not tell us what the front seats are like.
Equipment: This 190 E 2.3-16 comes with many extras
Engine: The 2.3-16 is the second most powerful 190
The 2.3-16 comes – below the 190 E Evo – as the most powerful of its kind. A four-cylinder engine with a displacement of 2299 ccm slumbers under its hood. The Mercedes is driven via the rear axle and reaches country road speed in 8.2 seconds. It takes 38.7 seconds to go from 100 to 200 km/h, and the limit is reached at 228 km/h. The curb weight of the classic is 1465 kg.
Rarity: Only 1000 pieces are officially reported
The 190 E 16-valves are rare and very popular. There are currently just under 1,000 of these vehicles officially listed. So this offer is the ticket to a rather exclusive club. The highest bid for this rare vehicle is currently 20,049 euros (as of May 30, 2022). However, it can be seen that the minimum price has not yet been reached — exactly how high it is is not known.
