1989 Mercedes-Benz 190E Cosworth £4346 (no reserve)

Bought new by Lord Litchfield, it was spec’d with an automatic gearbox. It had plenty of history, including 26 stamps in the service book. Recent work included a top-end rebuild with cylinder head skim, re-ground valves and new valve guides, plus a new timing chain. Competition was fierce for this car in the sale room and it eventually sold for £4346.
