IF YOU’RE GOING THE DISTANCE YOU NEED ONE OF THESE!

Few cars in the world have the reputation of the w123 regarding reliability.

In fact it’s as smooth as any modern car, with possibly even better ride comfort because of the soft suspension.

Approaching a corner, the initial body roll is alarming but while it’s no sports car the Mercedes is sure-footed. The bodyshell is high tensile steel but it’s not that heavy.

More than 2.4 million W123 models were produced worldwide between 1975 and 1986, still you never get to see one quite like this.

What’s the difference between this and any other lovingly restored classic car? For starters, it has not been restored.

No matter how well restored, no one can replicate the history and special feel of a factory-fresh Mercedes-Benz from this period.

This one is a 69.000Km from new, one owner 300D.

Very much the same feeling as buying one new in 1983 at a Mercedes dealer.
