MERCEDES BENZ 190E 2.3 16V - RACE OF CHAMPIONS 1984
This is a scale model kit to be assembled by an adult, it includes all the parts as indicated, but it does not include glue or paints.
Introduced in 1982, it marked a turning point in the production of the prestigious Stuttgart car manufacturer.
The "190" was in fact the entry version of the Mercedes product range but nevertheless contained important stylistic and technical innovations.
The design, with an excellent mix of style and elegance, will later also influence the cars of the higher segments of future Mercedes production.
From a technical point of view, the car adopted a longitudinal front engine, rear-wheel drive and disc brakes on all four wheels.
MacPherson front end and "multilink" rear suspension.
The first versions produced were equipped with two petrol engines of 1,998 cm3 with carburetor or, in the 190E version, with injection. Shortly after, the 2.3 16V sports version was presented which was also used in single-make sports competitions such as the 1984 "Nurburgring Champions Race Cup", which was attended by famous drivers of the period and some "old glories" of Formula 1.
