The Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II was a limited edition model of the Mercedes-Benz 190E, which was a high-performance variant of the 190. The '2.5' in its name signifies the engine displacement of 2.5L and '16' stands for the engine's 16-valve configuration.
The Evolution II was the most powerful car in the W201 190 lineup. It competed in DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft) in the early 1990s with the help of AMG, in which it enjoyed success including a championship victory in the 1992 season.
The car had a limited production run of 502 road-going exemplars in 1990, with each one being painted in black pearl.
Shift 2: Unleashed
The Evolution II only made an appearance in Shift 2: Unleashed as a Retro D car. In comparison with the BMW M3 Sport Evolution, the 190E costs a lot more, but handles better and has a worse 0-60 mph acceleration (7.00 sec.) and 60-0 mph braking (3.39 sec.) time.
The Speedhunters Pack features a Speedhunters Edition of the Evolution II, which is powered by a V8 and has a Speedhunters livery. It goes from 0-60 mph in 4.26 seconds and reaches a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h).
