Who doesn’t love a good sports sedan? While BMWs are greatly represented at any track day, seeing one of their biggest competitors, Mercedes-Benz, is kind of a rarity. But forum member LanEvo is waving the 3-point-star flag and turning this 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190e into a real track machine.

I had one of these (190e 2.6) and it was a fun street toy.  I put a set of decent shocks in it and some decent tires and it really was a fun car.  Great balance and inspired confedence when driving.  I can definitly see where adding a standard trans and setting it up for the track!!!  Excelent Find Ed!!!!!
