40 years of the W123 Mercedes

Nam Wheels - - Front Page -

At its launch in Jan­uary 1976, the Mercedes- Benz W123 se­ries of­fered a per­sua­sive com­bi­na­tion of el­e­gance and tech­ni­cal in­no­va­tions. The sa­loon was the first model to be­come avail­able. The range was ex­panded a year later by the Coupé and, for the first time, an Es­tate model. Over the course of the next ten years al­most 2.7 mil­lion ve­hi­cles were built, among these also long- wheel­base sedans and spe­cial body chas­sis. The era of the 123 model se­ries marks a par­tic­u­larly suc­cess­ful chap­ter in the suc­cess story of the E-class, as the in­ter­me­di­ate model from Mercedes- Benz was called from 1993 on­wards. The new E-class, which was just launched at the end of Jan­uary this year, con­tin­ues this suc­cess story.
