The 190E is without a doubt one of the most iconic models Mercedes-Benz has ever made. It is the car that started the whole high-performance saloon class, and the reason we have the BMW M3. But have you ever wondered what an 190E Cabriolet would be like?

Well, auto designer Theophilus Chin has. And he’s came up with these renderings to share his views with us. These days the E-Class family does have a four-seater convertible, but back in the 80s the range only consisted of sedan and estate models, with a coupe version to follow later on. These images show that a topless 190E would indeed be an intriguing prospect, what with the car’s amazing styling and superb performance with both the 2.3 and the 2.5 engines.

Production of the 190 ended in Sindelfingen in February 1993 and in Bremen in August that same year. A total of 1,879,629 vehicles had been manufactured. This underlines the success of the compact class, and the wisdom of the decision to extend the product range of the Mercedes-Benz brand into lower segments of the market.
