Mercedes put out a Cosworth tuned 190E in 1983, but in 1988 it needed to homologate a car for Group A racing and the 225bhp (167kW) 190E 2.5-16 Evo was the result. Just a year later, the Evo II came with an extra 10bhp (7kW) and this was the ultimate 190E. At the front the car used a MacPherson strut set-up, while the rear had a multi-link. The springs were lowered and the shocks uprated, but they also incorporated full adjustability and self-levelling with a sophisticated system. The bodywork was styled on the European touring cars, with extended arches covering new 8x17-inch (203x431mm) alloys. The spoilers front and rear had function, being adjustable to increase downforce. Cosworth again worked their magic on the four-cylinder 150ci (2.4-liter) engine, balancing the rotating assembly and giving it more aggressive cam timing to achieve the power.
