Is there any 190E 2.5 16V Evolution II in the US?

Is there any 190E 2.5 16V Evolution II in the US? If yes, where should I look to find one? If no, how much it would cost me to get the dtm body pack , rims, the wing(spoiler), engine mods, suspension mods, brakes?

engine , brakes, suspensions are not supposed to be all amg and original as in evolution II. could be other benz modifiers( kleeman, renntech etc..) however I want the orginal look with the same body kit and rims also interrior.

I am sure many have done this, pls some input

None have ever been imported to the US. Using factory parts would be very expensive, although many have installed aftermarket EVO II body kits

In the US as close to the EVOs you can get are the 2.3-16vs. That's only for the engine.

As for the body kit? Since I'm in Malaysia you can get them here but in the US? No idea.

Brakes? I heard that the W124 E500 have similar brakes which is possibly a bolt on job. Not sure about that tho.

Other parts? No idea since the EVO I and II are different engines than the 2.3s and 2.5s. DOn't get confused with EVO engines and the 2.5-16s, they're both different. The EVO engines in stock are rated at 235hp while the normal 2.5-16s are 204 (LHD) and 190 something (RHD)

I've got friends who've got replicas of the EVO II but you need a good body mechanic to work on it because so far the ones I've seen are horrible!

hi,

I have checked those online shops before and none sell EVO I or II parts. Not even the 2.5-16vs. They do have the 2.3-16vs parts tho.

I've even heard that if anyones going to buy the strut bar of an EVO, got to order it from a Mercedes dealer with the car number.

I did see an EVO II being to be sold on some online classic car shop BUT it's 200,000 pounds or Euro. Anyone can afford? I hope I can one day!

200 000 euro? =250 000 usd....if in pounds, thats worst.
With that money, you can get a slightly used CLK-DTM. (Slightly used coz they are sold out, you wont find a brandnew).

Only a damm rich, car collector would pay that much money for a EVo.
under 80K would be more realistic price for a EVO.but still would be hard to sell. Coz at the end its not a daily driver or a performance car of todays standards, a C230 can easly kill you...Its a collection item for me...and only for who can afford to pay a lot and have it sit in the garage most of the times.

Sport Evolutions and Evolution IIs were only built as LHD cars, even those sold in the UK, Japan and other RHD countries. Also, they were only sold in the 199, Blue-Black Metallic color.

Hey guys! Here's the one I found! Woops wrong price!! It's actually 40,000 pounds and 200,000 over in Malaysian money. Think you can get an AMG 55 with that money isn't it?

http://www.carclassic.com/stock.asp?StockID=101913

Here's a 190E with a V8 engine used to be owned by some engine tuner. It's one UGLY colour and tires tho. So inhumane!! Crime!

http://www.carclassic.com/stock.asp?StockID=100867

Traffic here is like in the UK, cars are all RHD BUT my car's LHD. Therefore faster than the RHD. HEh Heh!!

Can a C230 really kill it? Good point tho. One thing's for sure there are more bigger and powerful engines than this. The EVO II would just be a collector's item yeah. Personally I just love the looks, interior and the cool suspension. Prefer V8s! Now regretting putting in the 2.5 engine! Heh!! Wished I could've found any of those twin cam V8s from the SLs or an AMG . Always loved those small cars with big V8 engines. Like those old Mustangs and Shelbys. :p But I'll try to fall for this twin cam 4 pot in the mean time. Maybe when money permits will think about it.

hope you mean C230K, cause a standard 202 '230 isn't even gonna be close (evo II has almost 100 hp on the stock '230), especially from a rolling start where the 2.5-16v motor is in the higher RPM range. But yes, I agree with the sentiment......in terms of current sport compacts and performance euros, the Evo's don't even place in the top 10. It is a historical/racing legend, with some collector's value attached to it. It would be a fun track car, but from everything that I have heard, not a very reasonable daily driver/street car. Spend the money on a new engine and a custom turbo/supercharger, plus all of the other mods that you have ever dreamed of for your 202, and you will be getting more bang for your buck. Still, they would be pretty cool cars to own
