HEAD TURNER, GENUINE, ORIGINAL MERCEDES BENZ 190E 2.3L 16 CARLSSON EVO II
Entire history since BRAND NEW.
STREET LEGAL. TITLED.
This is my personal vehicle, from my collection and have used it in Europe.
I imported the car and went through the tedious and complicated work of making the car US legal, so you won't have to do it and got it registered in the USA, meaning I have a clean and clear Title on hand under my name and made it legal in all 50 States .
I have already imported some of my cars from my personal collection and they were sold within few days.
I am NOT like the competition who buys their cars overseas, without seeing them, without knowing their history, without any track record.
I have owned each and every single cars you will see. Meaning, I have had them Titled under my personal name before coming to the US.
ALL my cars have very low original miles, mostly with documentations, mostly with their original books and kept in meticulous condition.
Since my last sale here on Ebay, I have had lots of inquiries for the upcoming cars.
Collectors, enthusiastic persons are waiting to put their hands on those very rare cars.
Their value are increasing and as of today, there is NOT an other car like this one in the US.

None like this one around. No chances to see an other one. Your chance to own it.
Disclaimer: Ebay does not recognize the 17 digit VIN for this European car. As shown on the Title and stamped on the chassis, the number is WDB2010341F219670.
Mercedes Benz has a long history in luxury and racing. In the mid 80's, the German brand came up with the model 190E 2.3L 16 Valves and just few thousand were made worldwide. Much less were imported in the US back then.
Between 1984–1988, the MERCEDES BENZ has built 19487 190E 2.3-16 / W201 worldwide.
It was a production made to compete within the German "Grand Tourisme" Grand Prix known as DTM. Along with Mercedes Benz, other manufacture entered the race like BMW with the modified M3, FORD with the Sierra RS 500.
Today, these cars are well sought and appreciated from collectors around the world. Their value keep increasing due to the rarity.
When producing the 190E 2.3L 16 Valves, Mercedes Benz launched the EVO II, a rare breed for racing.
Some builders in Europe took advantage of the name and the performances of the car and add their personal touch.
One name in particular is CARLSSON. Others follow such as Ludwig, Danielson.
CARLSSON added a kit EVO II Rieger with huge rear wing, front and rear bumper, front skirt below the bumper, rims, disc brakes, brake calipers, mirrors, custom steering wheel and more.

On Aug-06-16 at 18:47:37 PDT, seller added the following information:
To answer a question I had; The car is 2" off the ground and if the buyer plans to load the car on a hauler, I will need to know in advance so I can remove to front bumper and put it inside the car.
Or the buyer can choose an enclosed trailer with a floor and a lift .... no need to remove the bumper.
THERE IS NO RESERVE PRICE.
I ENTERED "RESERVE" WHEN LISTING THE CAR BY ACCIDENT.
THE HIGHEST BIDDER WINS THE AUCTION
