GTA San Andreas - 1979-1985 Mercedes-Benz 230E W123


Mercedes-Benz introduced the W123 four-door versions in January, 1976[3]. While there were some technical similarities to their predecessors, the new models were larger in wheelbase and exterior dimensions.

The only new engine was the 250's 2525 cc inline-six (Type M123, a short-stroke version of the 2.8 litre six Type M110) that replaced the old 2496 cc Type M114 six. In the spring of 1976, a coupé version was introduced on a shorter wheelbase than the saloon (2710 mm (106.7 in) versus 2795 mm (110.0 in)) for the saloon. This W123C/CE was available 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 litre diesel engines. It is a tribute to the car's instant popularity -- and possibly to the caution built into the production schedules -- that nine months after its introduction, a black market had developed in Germany for Mercedes-Benz W123s available for immediate delivery.[4] Customers willing to order new cars from their <b>...</b>
