Worth? 190E AMG Manual

Post by m_nico » Tue 23 Jan, 2018 8:06 pm

Gday lads,
New here. I’ve been offered an 190E AMG 2.6 manual, it’s in good condition with only hand full of marks on body, mechanically sound etc etc
What r they worth? Give me a general idea as I couldn’t find too much info over the net.
Cheers
Michael

First you need to work out whether it is a real AMG car, or just a stuck on badge.

Source: Wikipedia
AMG was not part of Mercedes-Benz when the 190 was first produced, but a separate racing and tuning company. As AMG had racing experience in the DTM, they were tuning all the factory petrol engines for the customers and 190 E was one of them. Engine tuning added 25 bhp (19 kW). They fitted aerodynamic features (spoilers) improving Cw and high speed stability, alloy wheels, leather interior and larger engines up to 6-litre V8's.

The 190 E 3.2 AMG was the first model sold through Mercedes-Benz dealerships with Mercedes-Benz new car warranty. About 200 complete cars were made, in black or silver: they were very expensive (about $90,000). Besides 200 complete 190 E 3.2 AMG's, Mercedes-Benz sold AMG body kits and 3.2l AMG engines separately, so there are 190's fitted with those features at the factory or retrofitted. Sporty 190 E 3.2 AMG straight-six 12-valve engines produced 234 bhp (174 kW), and reached 260 km/h (162 mph).

Thinking it’s AMG enhanced/pack... it’s not a badge stuck on from what I’ve been told.

If you show the VIN number, there are people here far smarter than me who can look up what it really is.

Pictures of the car might help too.
