This is the one, what a dream boat!  Beautiful and fast Mercedes 190e 2.3-16.  16 valve Mercedes Cosworth from 1986.  I am the 3rd owner, have owned it for the past 12 years and it has only 55k original miles.  I bought it from the 2nd owner in 2002 and drove it more often when I first bought it but now only drive it once a month on nice days.  No winters, only the occasional sunny day.  Garage kept.  It was a third car so I just enjoyed it here and there.  It's fast and runs like a top!  

A little history about this car:  It's a 1986 and was imported brand new to the US in December of 1985.  My paperwork from the DOT says it arrived in the US on 12/28/85. I bought it from the 2nd owner.  It was the wife's car, she was a stay at home mom, and didn't use it much.  When I bought it, she had a baby's car seat in the back!  It is European with the faster engine and it shows.  It has more horsepower and it's a blast to drive.  I have a ton of paperwork with it.  Service records from the past 15 years for tune-ups, etc for around $6,000.  A lot of service was done at Mercedes of White Plains in NY. 

Condition: Great!  I'd say it is an 8 out of 10.  It's fast and runs like a top. It has a 5 speed transmission, the dogleg transmission.  The exterior is probably an 8.  It's all original paint, etc., but it has a couple chips and a couple scratches.  There is no rust and the car is extremely good but not perfect. There are some buff swirls on the rear spoiler.  The very bottom part of the side skirts have a couple spots where the black is worn off.  That's about it.  The wheels are mint, the spare wheel is mint.  They are the original factory wide wheels.  The tires only have a couple thousand miles and the spare tire has never been used.  The interior is also about an 8.  It is excellent but not perfect.  The leather seats are extremely good but there are a couple of tiny wear spots, no rips or anything.  One of the rear seat belt buckles is broken but works fine.  The window molding on the back two doors are coming up a little.  The display isn't working on the stop watch in the dash.  That's about it.  The rest is just about in excellent condition.  I believe the A/C needs a freon charge.   The radio and rear speakers were updated in the early 2000s but I have the original beckers radio if you want it.  I forgot to picture it.  All gauges work great.  Dash is nice.  It has an AMG steering wheel which  was on it when it was imported to the US.  It has the original manuals and tools.  No leaks.

I bought the car because it was in excellent shape with very few miles.  I did a carfax when I purchased it in 2002 and I still have it.  It's clean with no issues.  I can provide a copy if you email me.  The car is extremely nice.  I have the NY state title.  I'm not a mechanic so I don't know all the technical stuff but please email me with questions and I'll try to answer them as best as I can.  This is a beauty!!!  And there is no reserve so the highest bid wins!  The car is located in Amherst, NH.  Feel free to email if you want to see it/test drive it.

Again, please email me with any questions.  I'll try to answer them as best I can and can take more pictures upon request.  Thank!  I've never had it professionally waxed or detailed.  I'm sure it would look fantastic if it was.   

The vin is WDB2010341F175434.  I posted pictures of the clean carfax.  I also have a copy of the carfax from 2002.

Maybach lost upwards of $500k on each vehicle sold

Wed, 08 Feb 2012 18:01:00 EST

Daimler is shuttering Maybach in 2013 after seven years of production. In that time, the company's ultra-ultra-luxury arm managed to sell just 3,000 units, and CAR reports Daimler lost somewhere around $500,000 on each and every one of them.
Even with a ludicrous price tag of over $370,000 for an "entry" Maybach 57, the brand couldn't quite recoup the dizzying $1.33 billion Daimler poured into it since its (re)inception. Rumors ignited over a possible tie up with Aston Martin that would have resulted in a range of new and attractive models, but Daimler has instead decided to snuff out Maybach altogether.
We can hardly blame them.

Consumer Reports selling its road-tested roadsters [w/video]

Thu, 31 Jan 2013 17:15:00 EST

Here's a chance to acquire a celebrity-owned vehicles, and this time at a discount instead of a premium. So the celebrity in this case is Consumer Reports, that magazine that could be equally adored and abhored by car enthusiasts. CR buys all of its test vehicles and usually finds willing second owners within its own ranks, but its opening its small used-car lot to the public. On the forecourt are four roadsters: an automatic 2012 Audi TT 2.0 TFSI Quattro S-Tronic with 6,600 miles for $36,500, a manual 2012 BMW Z4 sDrive28i with 8,400 miles for $45,000, a manual 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK250 for $39,500 and a manual 2013 Porsche Boxster with 7,000 miles for $48,000.
Those numbers mean a savings of $9,000 to $10,000 before haggling - each car is listed with an "Asking price" so there could be some wiggle room if you show up with pockets full of dough and eyes full of serious intent. Since the money CR earns from the sales go back into the magazine's budget to buy more test cars, however, it probably won't take any oddball trades, so you can forget about getting any purchasing help from that track-day AMC Javelin project on blocks in the back yard.
The vehicles have been taken care of and spiffed up for sale; buyers will take delivery at the CR test track in East Haddam, Connecticut and get a tour of the facilities. While you're there they'll even take you on a lap around the track so you can feel how your car handles when driven by one of its testers. They will probably not help you with advice on which toaster and dehumidifier to buy - you'll still need to get a subscription for that. Have a look at the video below to see a day in the life of a CR test car.

Mercedes-Benz Concept GLA gets official ahead of Shanghai

Thu, 18 Apr 2013 03:01:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz has something special planned for the Shanghai Motor Show - a new CUV concept that we first saw when it leaked on the internet yesterday. The GLA Concept compact crossover will hit the show stand with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and 4Matic all-wheel drive, and likely previews a new production model that we've already spotted testing.
That's not news, but the laser-based headlamps with video-projecting capability certainly are. Mercedes-Benz says the array can project any image or video onto a screen, which is handy since there are a pair of HD cameras mounted to the roof rack. The cameras can be removed and taken with you on all sorts of adventures. The lamps also feature a visible cooling system comprised of a series of fans, and the system helps give the headlights their "sparkle" effect.
Step indoors and the GLA offers up the interior of a high-quality crossover, complete with contrasting leather and plenty of aluminum. The automaker says the cabin was inspired by saddle craftsmanship with "more than 65 feet of hand-stitched seams to hold the raw edges of the leather together."
