Mercedes-Benz W 123 - Development of a Legendary Youngtimer
A child of the 70s and a cult car of the 80s - both labels apply to the W
123. Beside the spirit of the times the W 123 carried many technical
innovations and safteyfeatures. A modern body in trendy colors, that's the
W 123 that we all know. In the early 70s, the model series 123 was already
in development. The developers paid particular attention to comfort,
convenience and safety. Countless kilometers of test drives along with new
test methods made sure that everything on the W 123 was of the highest
quality, right down to the smallest detail.
