Not A Cosworth. Still Quite Unusual.

Not A Cosworth. Still Quite Unusual.

1989 Mercedes-Benz 190E / Tommykaira M19

While most enthusiasts know of the hot W201-chassis Mercedes-Benz as tuned by Cosworth, this is a bit more obscure. Heck, we found it on the Obscure Cars For Sale Facebook page.

It’s a Tommykaira M19, built by the famed Tommykaira Japanese tuning house – mostly known to American enthusiasts for the tuned Nissans found on the Gran Turismo video game series. This is relatively tame, with a ported head and more aggressive camshaft adding a bit of power to the standard (not Cosworth) engine, but it has a magnificent road presence from the lowered suspension and BBS wheels.

It’s let down a bit by the automatic transmission, but with only around 154hp (per the seller) it’s not winning any races. It’s just a fun car and conversation piece.

It’s on eBay in Philadelphia with reserve not yet met.
