Mercedes Benz C123 Coupé Development
Mercedes-Benz first introduced the W123 four-door versions in January, 1976. While technically quite similar to their predecessors, the new models grew somewhat in terms of wheelbase and exterior dimensions and were given a more modern body that retained strong stylistical links with the /8 while at the same time incorporating more modern features. Initially, all models except 280/280E featured quad unequal-size round headlights and the latter models big, square single units. All /8 engines were carried over, with the 3 liter 5-cylinder diesel model being renamed from 240D 3.0 to a more logical 300D (as it had already been called before in North American markets). Only new engine was the 250`s 2525 cc inline-six (Type M123, a short-stroke version of the 2.8 liter six Type M110) that replaced the old 2496 cc Type M114 six. In the spring of 1976, a new Coupé version was introduced, again on a shorter wheelbase than the saloon (2710 mm (106.7 in) instead of 2795 mm (110 in)). This W123C/CE was available only as a 230C (later 230CE) and as a 280C/CE in most markets; in North America there were additional 300CD versions with naturally aspirated, later turbocharged 3 liter diesel engines. From August, 1977, long wheelbase versions (3425 mm (134.8 in)) joined the line-up. These were available as 7/8 seater saloons with works bodies or as mere chassis with complete front body clip, the latter serving as the base for ambulance and hearse bodies by external suppliers like Binz or Miesen. These "Lang" versions could be ordered as 240D, 300D and 250 models. At the Frankfurt Auto Show in September, 1977 the W123T estate was introduced; the T in the model designation stood for "Touring and Transport". Most, but not all engines were available with this body style; a "200TD", for example, was not part of the line-up. T production began in March, 1978 in Mercedes` Bremen factory. In early 1979, the diesel models received a power Boost; power rose from 55 PS (54 hp/40 kW) to 60 PS (59 hp/44 kW) in the 200D, from 65 PS (64 hp/48 kW) to 72 PS (71 hp/53 kW) in the 240D and from 80 PS (79 hp/59 kW) to 88 PS (87 hp/65 kW) in the 300D; at the same time, the 220D went out of production. The first Mercedes turbo diesel production car appeared in September, 1979. This was the 300 TD turbodiesel, available with automatic transmission only. In most markets, the turbocharged 5-cylinder 3 liter diesel engine (Type OM617) was offered only in the T body style, while in North America it was also available in sedan and coupe guise. June, 1980 saw the introduction of new 4-cylinder petrol engines (Type M102). A new 2 liter four with shorter stroke replaced the old M115, a fuel-injected 2.3 liter version of this engine (in 230E/TE/CE) the old carburetted 230. Both engines were considerably more powerful than their respective predecessors. In 1980/81 the carburetted 280 versions went out of production; the fuel-injected 280E continued to be offered. In September, 1982, all models received a mild make-over. The square headlights, formerly a privilege of 280/280E, were standardized across the board, as was power steering. Since February, 1982, a 5-speed manual transmission had replaced the former 4-speed unit in all models (except 300 TDT). W123 production ended in November, 1985. Most popular single models were the 240D (455,000 built), the 230E (442,000 built) and the 200D (378,000 built). W123 innovations that its predecessor lacked included ABS (optional from August, 1980), a retractable steering column and an airbag for the driver (optional from 1982). Available options included MB-Tex (Mercedes-Benz Texturized Punctured Vinyl) upholstery or velour or leather upholstery, interior wood trim, right hand side exterior mirror (LHD models, standard on T models), 5-speed manual transmission (European market only), 4-speed automatic transmission (standard in turbodiesel models), power windows with rear-seat switch cut-outs, vacuum powered central locking, rear-facing extra seats (station wagon only), Standheizung (prestart timer controller engine heating), self locking differential, sun roof, air conditioning, climate control, headlamp wipers (European market only), Tempomat (cruise control), power steering (standard after 1982/08), seat heating, CO converter (available from 1984 for California only, from fall 1984 also in Germany for the 230E of which a mere thousand were built).
