1989 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution
Chassis no. WDB201.036-1F-612472
Engine no. 102.991-10-000429
Sold new in Cologne, Germany, this car was brought to the UK in 1997 at 118,000 kilometres and has been in the current vendor's possession since March 2007. German usage is documented by the car's service book and British usage by complete MoT records. The current odometer reading is 219,000 kilometres. During the current ownership this car has been comprehensively maintained. Mechanical servicing has been carried out by the UK's leading W201 specialists and has included a full rebuild of the front and rear suspension and (in 2013) a new timing chain, prop shaft and differential (using only official Mercedes-Benz parts).

In 2012 the body was stripped for treatment of all signs of deterioration and a full re-spray carried out in the original colour of blue-black metallic (see photographs on file). The interior, featuring the optional sunroof and black leather trim, is believed to be entirely original and shows very little wear. We are advised that the car drives briskly and tightly, the high-revving four-cylinder engine and Getrag five-speed 'dogleg' gearbox providing a special and very satisfying driving experience. Currently UK registered, this highly desirable and rare Mercedes-Benz super-saloon is offered with the aforementioned service/MoT records, current road fund licence, MoT to January 2015, V5C registration document and its old German Fahrzeugbrief.

Dieses Fahrzeug wurde in Köln neu gekauft und 1997 mit 118.000 km nach Großbritannien exportiert. Vom jetzigen Eigner wurde das Fahrzeug im März 2007 erworben. Für die Zeit der Nutzung in Deutschland ist alles im Service-Heft dokumentiert, die Britische Historie durch die gesamte MoT Aufzeichnung. Aktuell ist der Tachostand mit 219.000 km angegeben. Durch den letzten Besitzer wurde das Fahrzeug regelmäßig und umfassend gewartet. Für mechanische Reparaturen wurde das Fahrzeug zu einem führenden britischen W201 Spezialisten gebracht. Bei diesem wurden unter anderem die vordere und hintere Fahrwerksaufhängung erneuert (2013), die Steuerkette und die Antriebs-Gelenkwellen ausgetauscht (es wurden nur original Mercedes-Benz Ersatzteile verbaut).

Im Jahr 2012 wurde die Karosserie wegen vieler Gebrauchsspuren komplett neu im originalen Farbton "Blau-Schwarz Metallic" lackiert (siehe Fotos der Dokumentation). Das Interieur, ausgestattet mit dem optionalen Stahlschiebedach schwarzem Leder, erscheint augenscheinlich sehr original mit nur geringen Abnutzungsspuren.

Nach Angaben des Einlieferers läβt sich dieses Fahrzeug sehr sportlich fahren. Der hochdrehende 4-Zylinder Motor in Verbindung mit dem Getrag Fünfgang Getriebe ("Dogleg" – 1. Gang unten links in der Schaltkulisse) sorgt für sehr gute Fahrleistungen. Aktuell ist dieser sehr gesuchte Mercedes-Benz in England angemeldet. Er wird mit den bereits erwähnten MoT Bescheinigungen (britischer "TÜV" / MoT - Januar 2015), aktuelle Plakette der Straßenbenutzungsgebühr , V5C Registrierungs-Bescheinigung und dem alten Deutschen Fahrzeugbrief angeboten.
