The Mercedes 2.3-16V, also known as the Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16, is a high-performance variant of the Mercedes-Benz 190 compact executive car. It was produced from 1983 to 1988 and was designed specifically for motorsport homologation purposes, to compete in the German Touring Car Championship (DTM).
The 2.3-16V was powered by a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine with a 16-valve cylinder head and fuel injection. It produced 185 horsepower (138 kW) and 174 lb-ft (235 Nm) of torque, which was a significant improvement over the standard 190E’s 2.0-liter engine.
The car featured a sport-tuned suspension, a limited-slip differential, and larger brakes than the standard 190E. It also had a body kit with flared wheel arches, a front air dam, and a rear spoiler, which helped improve aerodynamics and reduce lift at high speeds.
The Mercedes 2.3-16V was successful in motorsport, winning the DTM championship in 1986 and 1987 with driver Klaus Ludwig. It also became a popular choice for enthusiasts who wanted a high-performance, yet practical and reliable, sports sedan.
Today, the Mercedes 2.3-16V is considered a classic car and is highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts. Its racing pedigree, advanced engineering, and timeless design make it a true icon of the 1980s
