The Brabus 3.6S Lightweight is a sporty interpretation of the famed Mercedes 190E and now the only existing unit goes on sale.

Introduced back in 1983, the Mercedes 190E was a true revolution for the star brand. The exterior was modest and understated, but the ultimate goal was to be a true BMW-style sports saloon, something it achieved thanks to what was hidden under its hood.

It was born as the most affordable four-door saloon from Mercedes but was initially fitted with a six-cylinder in-line engine that declared 160 hp in the front position and rear propulsion. In addition, it was the first model of the brand that premiered the 5-link suspension on the rear axle.

<span style =Years later, in 1988, Brabus, Mercedes’ “official” customization company, created the 3.6S Lightweight, based on the aforementioned Mercedes 190E. This preparation was powered by a 3.6-liter inline six-cylinder at the front, with some more than remarkable 286 hp of power and 364 Nm of torque. Its performance was thus significantly improved compared to the model from which it started, with a 0 to 100 in 6.3 seconds and a maximum speed of 254 km / h. “>

The Lightweight was not brought into productionas it was only used as a display model. However, twenty years after the car’s debut, in 2008, Brabus’s head of public relations, Sven Gramm, ordered the construction of a reproduction, something that was done in 10 months, using only the original blueprints.

Brabus 900, is it really necessary?

Gramm subsequently sold it to a collector in the UK in 2017, who has barely driven it and is now putting it up for sale through Fast Classics. In perfect condition and with just 10,439 km on the odometer, you can get it for about 100,000 euros to change.

Curiously, this unit was put on sale a few years ago by the same seller at a price of about 150,000 euros, although did not get a buyer. Will there be any luck this time?
