The 123 series is one of the most built models by Mercedes-Benz and belongs to the upper middle range. The W114 and W115 were the predecessors of the series, which, as pioneer of the station wagon in this class as well as turbo diesel set new standards in vehicle safety. From this series, the 230 E is the most successful petrol engine, which from 1980 onwards replaced the obsolete and uneconomical predecessor engine M 115 that was still based on a construction from the 50's. Until January 1986 the 230 E with four-cylinder engine and overhead camshaft (OHC) rolled out of the factory. Maximum torque was 205 Nm at 3500, with a power of up to 100 kW (136 hp) at 5100.
