The 1992 DTM championship winning Mercedes-Benz 190E of Klaus Ludwig. The earlier version of these cars were built in the early 80s for rallying. However, when Audi bought out the four wheel drive Quattro, the Mercedes was obsolete before even turning a wheel on gravel. With engine tuning by Cosworth, Mercedes instead took the 190E touring car racing, taking on the might of the BMW M3, and Ford Sierra. With the evolution II model, they had a car capable of beating the other manufacturers, culminating in victory in 1992.
