Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evo II DTM
Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evo II DTM
Mercedes-Benz made its first small luxury sedan and considered returning to rallying. They partnered with Cosworth, but Audi Quattro performed so well that it overshadowed their efforts. However, this setback led them to focus on racing on tracks. They developed the Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evo II DTM, a legendary racing car.
In 1984, they gave the newly designed 190 E 2.3-16 car to twenty past F1 Grand Prix winners for a special race at the new Grand Prix configuration of Nurburgring. The driver list included famous names like Jack Brabham, Hans Herrmann, Jody Schekter, Stirling Moss, James Hunt, Niki Lauda, and more. Ayrton Senna, just 24 years old at the time, won that remarkable race.
The Mercedes-Benz 190E-2.5-16 DTM Evo-2, as it was called, marked Mercedes-Benz's entry into DTM racing. It was their strong comeback to motorsports and Group C endurance racing. In 1989, they upgraded it with a 2.5-liter engine and a 16-valve design that produced 340 horsepower. They made the car lighter for racing by removing interior parts and using Kevlar for the hood, boot lid, and spoiler. Later, they boosted its power to 373 hp, and this version was known as Evo II.
The last racing season for the Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evo II in DTM was in 1993. It had an incredible career with 52 victories. The final win was by Bernd Schneider at Hockenheimring.

Evan DeCiren was born and raised in the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland in the humble family of a superbike mechanic. Naturally, he spent a lot of time in the camper of his father team Honda HRC during various competitions across Europe.
Evan has developed a great affinity for comic art and since he was a kid, he wanted to be a designer. And succeeded in a spectacular way. “I was always into comics – starting with the classic "Mickey Mouse" to the "Japanese Manga".
In '96 when we went with the whole family to spend a month of our summer vacation being guests to a friend of my father who was Honda FCC engineer. The Japanese culture from here on will become an inspiration in my personal growth”, remembers Evan.
His story is also interesting because he has both mechanical and illustrator degrees. Think of him as the guy capable for both fixing and drawing vehicles. Initially, his comics` studies were influenced by the Japan manga comic style but latter he found inspiration in the design works of Mignola, Miller and Risso. They had helped Evan to form his unique and distinctive style.
