In Mercedes-Benz's long history, this particular model, the W123 must be the most popular model that surpassed even Daimler's top executives expectations.
Sold across the world, this model because of it’s lower maintenance cost was the most favourite among Taxi-drivers across the world. It was therefore not uncommon to hear about drivers clocking 5 lakh to even 8 lakh kilometers. Over a period of time, people were even paying premiums to possess this model since there was a long waiting list.
Just two years after her introduction, Mercedes came out with their Estate version which was named 250 T (the letter T signified the Touring version).
