The Mercedes Benz 190 series was the result of a modernization program carried out by the Stuttgart manufacturer. Supposedly, Mercedes-Benz spent more than 650 million euros on the research and development of the 190. So much so that it was later even considered “overdesigned”.
To have a competitive version for its homologation for competition, Mercedes-Benz relied on the British company Cosworth to develop the engine. Based on the 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine of the 230E model, its light alloy cylinder head was redesigned, now having four valves per cylinder. Other improved elements are the fuel injection system, which incorporates an electronic control device and a microprocessor to regulate the ignition. With all these changes the engine produced 185 hp, with a very flat torque curve and a wide power band.
This is how the 190E 2.3-16 was born, which was presented in September 1983 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The Mercedes Benz 190 2.3-16 came to the market with a front and rear spoiler, widened wings and wider tires. These elements gave the new Mercedes model a sporty and compact appearance, and its performance was above average, with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than eight seconds and a top speed of 230 km/h.
