Would You Buy a Mercedes-Benz 190 Evolution II Instead of an E30 M3 Sport Evo?
Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s, there were two special rides that dominated the racing segment, and those two German models were no other than the BMW E30 M3 Sport Evo and the Mercedes-Benz 190 Evolution, both coming with some powerful characteristics under the hood.
Now, the question that rises is which one would you choose for your own fun and driving pleasure or just for some thrilling spin around the tracks? Before taking a subjective decision, let`s have a look at each car`s main specifications.
To start with the E30 BMW M3 Sport Evo, the model looks gorgeous, a real German engineering of the time, coming with an appealing yet aggressive design, highlighted by a powerful engine under the hood. Besides looking in pristine condition, this lad here also comes with some slight mods, like custom steering wheel and aluminium pedals courtesy of AC Schnitzer.
Speaking about performance, the M3 Sport Evo packs a 2.5-liter I4 engine, which replaces the original 2.3-liter mill. This means that it develops 238 horsepower and allows a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds, achieved via a five-speed manual transmission.
The Mercedes-Benz 190 Evolution II is another iconic model of the 1990s, the model coming with advanced aerodynamics and a futuristic design ahead its time. Unfortunately, it is heavier than the BMW which means that the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is done in 7.1 seconds. Also, it takes its power from a 2.5-liter flat-four engine, good for 235 horsepower. The power is sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual as well.
Having that said, both models will be available for sale at Silverstone Auction`s Classic Motor Show starting this November, both models having a starting price of around £100,000. It is now up to you to decide which one is best fit for your needs!
