A LEGENDARY Mercedes is set to make a long-waited comeback in 2025 – and it comes with a shocking £650,000 price tag.
HWA – an engineering and motorsport company – is set to recreate the iconic Mercedes 190E 2.5-16 Evo II.
The legendary motor was first launched more than 30 years ago and only 502 models were made.
Now, HWA are remaking it and calling it the HWA Evo.
The manufacturers said: “The HWA Evo is a furious reinterpretation of the legendary Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evo II – equipped with state-of-the-art technologies.”
HWA founder Hans Werner Aufrecht said: “The Evo II was a design icon of the early 1990s and set benchmarks in terms of style. Our idea was to reinterpret this design.”

HWA are expected to build 100 new– but they won’t come cheap.
The cars are priced at £620,000, and are expected to be available from 2025.
It comes as a car loved by Brits will return as a whole new vehicle – but drivers are fuming over the “stiff and uncomfortable” ride.
The Volkswagen Group said that it will stop making Seat cars including the Ibiza and Leon models.

Meanwhile, a major car brand is reportedly considering reviving a popular model years after it was discontinued.
Dubbed the Fusion Active, it is set to be released either this year or, though no date has been set.
It is expected to be aimed at the mid-budget SUV market, rivalling models like the Subaru Outback.
Elsewhere, Toyota have announced that the iconic Prius is making a welcomed comeback to UK showrooms – 12 months after the car giant claimed it wouldn’t be available to buy.
The fifth-generation Prius, which was first unveiled last year, was originally kicked out of Toyota’s UK line-up due to apparent higher demand for SUV models.
