1985 Mercedes 190E Ex-Team Snobeck

Competition vehicle Without registration
Spotted in Paris is a 1985 Mercedes 190E Ex-Team Snobeck up for Auction.    Launched in 1976, the French production championship (which became Supertourism in 1989) enjoyed huge popularity in the 1980s. The cars were easily recognizable: BMW 635, Peugeot 505 Turbo, Rover Vitesse or Chevrolet Camaro, spectacularly jousting with each other in the hands of well-known and popular racing drivers, such as Jean-Pierre Beltoise, Jean-Marc Sourd, Jean-Pierre Malcher, Jean Ragnotti, Jean-Pierre Jarier, Claude Ballot-Lena, Xavier Lapeyre, Jean-Louis Schlesser, as well as Jean-Louis Trintignant. The Mercedes 190 E we are offering raced in this atmosphere, and was a part of the racing team of Dany Snobeck, a high level racing driver, tuner and excellent team manager. The Team Snobeck Racing was one of the great leaders of the production championship, often right at the front row, with both the Alfa Gtv6s and the Mercedes 190s.   What do you think of this car?
