RE: One of the most successful DTM car EVER !!!


Anyways I dont want to argue, I know the EVOII is a great car, so lets enjoy the few which are left on the road and not worry about facts and figures. As you know a 1996 VR6 Syncro Golf III should be able to keep up with the EVOII (on Paper its faster) but we all know that this is not true.

Enjoy your ride, I regret selling mine,... specially on track days.

Hello Storm,

I do NOT want to argue neither but I don't understand:

The 190E EVO II has 235hp
The 190E 2.o 8v has 122hp

The acceleration figures right here:

190E EVOII=> 0 to 62mph in 7.1s,Top speed 155mph
190E 2l 8v=> 0 to 62mph in 11s, Top speed 118mph

[?]Are you telling me that MB installed a highly tunned 2.5 litre 4 inline for no reason on the 190E ?? How can a 190E 2.0 litre with 8 valves be as fast has a 2.5 EVOII engine that makes 235hp?[?]

1991 Mercedes 2.5-16s Evolution II (engine blew up needs to be fixed!)

2005 Mercedes C55 AMG -> V58 VATH engine 440hp , 5.766 ccm engine, Max. torque: 630 Nm at 3.900 rpm

2013 Mercedes W166 ML bi-turbo 63amg -> V63S Vath, 630hp and 930 Nm, Vath carbon fenders and interior, Brabus butterfly exhaust

unless the 8v is totally stripped, on slicks and with different gearing, no way is the same as the EvoII
