One of a kind, very unique, RESTORED 1989 Mercedes 190E 2.6L THIS IS A ONE OWNER CAR WITH CERTIFIED LOW 95,000 MILES ! (That’s 4,000 miles per year in 23 years).
People asked me why I chose the 2.6L automatic as a base for this car and not the 2.3L 16V model – the answer is simple – I wanted a reliable, easy to maintain, easy to drive, great handling car with plenty of torgue, good power and awesome looks! Although the 2.3L 16V has a racing history behind it and is a great car for the track, it sucks for everyday driving with no torgue, expensive to maintain cosworth engine. That’s why I chose this all original, One owner, low mileage 2.6L 6 cylinder car as a base for this project.

BODY:

Many-Many man hours went into the labor on this Mercedes to make this one off custom AMG kit fit right and to make this car as you see it today! It’s absolutely beautiful !
