Is there an even rarer vehicle based on the Mercedes 190 E (W 201) than the legendary and sauteuren 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II? Is there! The Brabus 3.6S Lightweight. It was an absolutely unique piece and a perfect one Replica is currently being sold. From the British classic and youngtimer dealer "Fast classics". The good piece should cost stately 116.000 Euros (99.995 pounds). Why is it not the original? Because that no longer exists. The story: In 1988 a customer wanted a tuned Mercedes 190E sedan and asked Brabus to pimp it. But the customer didn't like the lack of air conditioning, the distant rear row of seats, the Recaros, etc. He wanted everything back and decided to keep essentially just the body kit and the engine. But a good 20 years later, another customer came to Brabus and ordered a replica. And the replica on 190 E 2.6 base was carried out by Brabus in 2008 and is fully documented. So there isn't really any difference to the original.
painted in "signal red" (color code MB 568)
And the replica also puts all 502 190 Evo IIs in the shade in terms of performance. The Brabus 3.6S is in "Signal red" (Color code MB 568) painted and got new ones purse, one Radiator grille galvanized in body color and one wing with integrated lines for the Rear differential cooler on the tailgate. The changes are particularly extensive on the inside. Because everything that was not needed was thrown out. Instead of the back seat, Brabus installed one Cage with Cross bracing and Attachment points für die Harness belts and even the Air conditioning has disappeared. Next there was one Brabus Type II steering wheel, three Additional instruments, a customized Speedometer scale up to 300 km / h and as a highlight one installed Recaro Spa Kevlar bucket seatsthat weigh just 3326 grams per seat.
The most extensive changes have been made to the engine. And that gives the classic one Top speed of up to 270 km / h. The Brabus 3.6S Lightweight enjoys one drilled out in-line six-cylinder based on the M 103 block from the W 124. And that was with everything from the area Naturally aspirated engine tuning equipped. No matter if new crankshaft, Piston, finely balanced pleuel, Others Valves, Hub extension from 80,25 to 90 millimeters, bigger Cylinder bore from 88,5 to 92 millimeters (the resulted in a displacement of 3590 cc) to the changed tax times.
almost 100 PS and over 100 NM more
All changes have a share in the output of 272 PS and 365 Nm torque at 4800 rpm. After all, that's almost 100 PS and over 100 NM more than the standard three-liter from the 124. In combination with the Weight reduction because of the many Lightweight construction measures just have to 1.340 kg be moved. In other words, the 3.6S has a considerable power-to-weight ratio that is also reflected in the performance. Because it only goes from 0 to 100 km / h 6,3 seconds and the top speed of 270 km/h has already been mentioned above. So who the 3.6S replica want to own, you should stop by the British dealer "Fast Classics". And keep in mind that while the price of around 116.000 euros (99.995 pounds) is a lot of money, a 190 Evo II is significantly more expensive and far less exclusive.
