Footnotes

  • Mercedes-Benz went head to head with BMW when it launched the compact 190 Series in December 1982, expanding its market to include motorists hitherto unable to afford the Stuttgart manufacturer's high-quality products. This policy proved an outstanding success, with sales of the 190 totalling almost two million over the course of its ten-year production life. A sports model was not long in coming, the Cosworth-developed 185bhp 2.3-16 joining the expanding 190 range in the autumn of 1983, to be followed a couple of years later by the 2.5-16. An effective body kit that lowered the Cd to a remarkable 0.32 helped the Cosworth-engined 190E to a top speed of around 140mph. Produced with touring car racing in mind, limited edition Evolution and Evolution II versions had arrived by the decade's end. 

    Jack Sears purchased this 190E 2.3-16 Cosworth new from the Norwich branch of Mercedes-Benz agents Robinsons Motor Group. Registered on 1st January 1986, the car received the number 'C380 AEX', which was later changed to the current 'A14 JGS'. Robinsons continued to service the Mercedes, as evidenced by bills on file. Presented in generally good condition, this low-mileage example of one of the most exciting touring cars of recent times is offered with current MoT, original order paperwork, copies of old/current V5/V5C documents, a quantity of MoTs dating back to 1991, and the aforementioned service bills.
