Description

The first sports car of the 190 E model was the 2.3 16 valve version.
A success for a large market car to which the German manufacturer combined a sportier version.
The next one, that is the 2.5 16-valve, which remained even rarer, had a Cosworth engine and ZF gearbox.
The power had been increased, some special version like the Senna or Lauda based on the
metallic gold color.
They could be combined with a small checkered fabric interior or total black leather, as in the case of this car which was sold new in Switzerland to an Italian who lived there and who only used it to return to his country of origin during holidays.
In fact, even if it marks over 140,000 km, the car looks very good and is in excellent condition.
Upon retirement, the owner retires to his homeland in the south of Calabria until the end of his days and the car, forgotten in a garage for about 5 years, is found by a young enthusiast who manages to acquire it, to did the the ASI homologation A 3, and uses it only sporadically.
Recently acquired by us, this car is serviced and with several works carried out,
such as engine mounts, oil and filters.
The car also has all its original paint with the exception of two pieces on the left doors.
Fully functional with self-leveling suspension and self-locking differential.
