Today, high-performing AMG-powered Mercedes-Benz sports sedans are a dime a dozen, with the German luxury marque seemingly releasing a new one every month. But three decades ago, such cars were rarities, and one in particular from 1990 — the 190E 2.5 16 Evolution II, or Evo II for short — has become legendary for helping to lay the groundwork for the MB super sedans of today. And now you have the chance to own one.

Speedart Motorsports is selling a mint 1990 Mercedes-Benz Evo II, number 473 of just 502 Group A homologation specials that were produced. The car is renowned for its radical aerodynamic bodywork and giant rear wing, courtesy of designer Prof. Richard Eppler. Under the hood, the rare street racer boasts a Cosworth-built 2.5L I4 engine with added AMG PowerPack that was good for 235 hp from the factory. This example being sold is believed to be one of the most pristine in existence, with no modifications, glorious original Blue/Black Metallic exterior paint, and just 11,339 miles on the odometer. You can purchase this rare Benz from Speedart Motorsports for $475,000.

Purchase: $475,000
