Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March of 1990, he 190E Evo 2 was created to satisfy DTM sanctions requiring a production version of all competing race vehicles. Over the years Mercedes Benz had gathered a vast amount of data on their touring race cars and had pushed development beyond the capacities of the standard vehicle. The popularity of touring cars was at an all time high and the DTM racing program was realizing world wide successreminiscentof Group B Rallying days. In order to further increase performance, rastic changes needed to be made to all aspects of the vehicle - and these changes would have to appear on the homologation production version.
The motorsports division, ow known as AMG, as given unlimited resources in order to build a champion race car. The result was extensive modifications of Chassis, erodynamics and Engine Power that was aimed strictly at competition victory. Wind Tunnel testing helped to create the impressiveaerodynamicspackage that would alter nearly every body panel of the vehicle! With a focus on function, his car looks brutally honest as its intentions are quite visible: downforce and stability. The Engine, reviously developed by Mercedes Benz, as modifiedadditionallyby the experts at Cosworth to create more power as well as retain reliability. Unheard of at the time, his 2.5L 4 Cylinder created 235HP with a sound and rush that was unique and intoxicating. In race trim, he 2.5L would develop nearly 400HP. A close ratio 5 speed transmission was developed with a revised shift pattern keeping the most used gears inline. Another motorsports derived part, his unique 5 speed transmission was known as the dogleg gearbox. The ride height of the race vehicle was extremely low and for the production car to maintain useability Mercedes employed a height adjustable hydraulic suspension system that would allow the car to traverse the back roads just as easily as it did the race track. Creature comforts were offered as options all the while these vehicles were the most expensive offering from Benz at the time.
