Chassis No. WDB2010361F741957, Engine No. 10299210000531. Black over black with pattern cloth inserts. 2.5-liter, 235-hp L-4, 5-speed manual. Pirelli tires, sunroof, cassette stereo, tool roll.

Evaluation: Original | Sold new to Japan, then came to Canada in 2015. Showing 41,357 kilometers (25,698 miles). Likely original paint with light scratching on most body panels. Driver’s side B-pillar has light scratches as well, and the covers for the jacking points have blistered paint. Scratches on the windshield trim. Dull grille plastic. Light wear on the driver’s seat’s outer bolster, but the rest of the interior looks good. Certainly used, but not necessarily abused. Located in British Columbia.

Bottom Line: The Evolution II is the fastest, most developed, and most aggressively styled of the 190 Cosworth Benzes, and it won Mercedes the DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Mesiterschaft) championship in 1992. A homologation special, only 500 were built, and all of the above makes them highly coveted among Mercedes fanatics and people who collect modern performance cars. This one was heavily discounted for its wear and tear, though. Other, near-perfect Evo IIs have sold in the neighborhood of 400 grand.
