Mercedes-Benz 190 racing history at AMG

Mercedes 190E also with AMG at the DTM:

  • 1986: An AMG Mercedes 190 E 2.3-16 records two victories in the German Touring Car Championship (DTM).
  • 1988: The AMG Mercedes 190 E 2.3-16 takes four wins in the German Touring Car Championship, Mercedes-Benz and AMG strike up an official partnership in motorsport.
  • 1989: AMG is the most successful team in the DTM, with Klaus Ludwig and Johnny Cecotto notching up seven race wins at the wheel of the AMG Mercedes 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution I.
  • 1990: Premiere of the more powerful 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II.
  • 1991: AMG Mercedes finishes top of the team standings and Klaus Ludwig is the most successful driver. Mercedes-Benz takes the constructors’ title. The DTM is at the peak of its powers, with the races attracting an audience of over 153 million.
  • 1992: AMG Mercedes again takes the team honours and Mercedes-Benz the constructors’ crown. Klaus Ludwig is the DTM champion driving an AMG Mercedes 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II. Ellen Lohr becomes the fist woman to win a round of the DTM – at the wheel of an AMG Mercedes – whilst former Formula 1 World Champion Keke Rosberg also drives for the team.
  • 1993: Roland Asch finishes runner-up in the DTM in an AMG Mercedes. This proves to be the farewell season for the AMG Mercedes 190 E, the winner of 50 races.

I was at AMG in Affalterbach today and the only reference to any 190E stuff was a 2.5-16 engine sitting on a stand... too bad.

At the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart/Untertürkheim you can see the above shown 190E 2.5-16 EvoII! Every year at the "stars & cars" Mercedes-Benz event it's driving down the street

Which is weird, as it was really the first official "AMG Mercedes" road car offered for sale, even if it was a homologation special for the DTM.

The #3 car is the one that Ludwig used to win the 1992 DTM championship.

I also noticed a slight mistake in the time line: 1993 wasn't the last year for the 190E, Mercedes also ran the W201 in 1994, but it was for a "junior team" composed of newbie drivers. Although, the main focus of AMG that year was the W202, which won the championship first time out (again with Klaus).

Cheers, BT
