The One And Only BRABUS 190E 3.6S ‘Lightweight’ Ever Built Is Now For Sale

The late 1980s was an exciting period for supercar development, with an ever-growing focus on performance that gave way to models like the Ferrari F40, Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV, and De Tomaso Pantera GT5. In an effort to cash in on the craze, German tuning outfit BRABUS created a prototype track-ready version of the Mercedes 190E 3.6L powered by a 286hp naturally-aspirated straight-six.

Dubbed the 3.6S — though better known simply as the “BRABUS Lightweight” — this one-off example’s lack of creature comforts ultimately prevented it from entering production after its debut in 1988. However, 20-years-later, the tuner’s PR director Sven Gramm tasked the outfit with producing a single 3.6S 190E specimen in 2008. Capable of 6.3-second 0-60mph runs and boasting a 158mph top speed, this one-of-one street-legal track car is now seeking a new home. Only showing 6,487-miles on the odo, this 1988/2008 Brabus 190E 3.6S ‘Lightweight’ is currently on offer through Fast Classics in Surrey, England — as well as on eBay — with an asking price of approximately $138,000. For more info, you can check out the link below.

Purchase: $138,000
