This vehicle quickly became a status symbol during the 1980s and early 1990s, and the well-designed, classic exterior belies the fact that these cars were made as solid as a rock, and are still more than capable when it comes to delivering a fantastic driving experience. The Mercedes Cosworth, which is also known as the Mercedes 190E, is actually a joint effort between the German car manufacturer and a British engineering company called Cosworth. The Mercedes Cosworth is therefore quite a unique vehicle, although most of the differences with standard models can be found under the hood. The 2.3 L, 16-valve engine was a serious contender for its time, and a very powerful engine to be fitted in a luxury car. This means that even today you can still get some great bite out of the Mercedes Cosworth, and when this is coupled with renowned German efficiency, you have a real classic on your hands. Interestingly, Cosworth also went on to collaborate with Ford, producing the Ford Sierra Cosworth, transforming a fairly standard machine into a road-eating powerhouse. Searching the large inventory on eBay is a surefire way to find either of these vehicles, as well as parts.
