Triple triumph: 40 years of the Mercedes-Benz 123 model series

230 W123

At its launch in January 1976, the Mercedes-Benz 123 model series offered a persuasive combination of elegance and multiple 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 them also long-wheelbase saloons and chassis for special bodies.
