Mercedes W123 Promotional Video

W123s were a dime a dozen in 1980s Southern California. My neighbor, a sheriff's deputy, had a side business importing grey market Mercedes and always had at least three or four small-bumpered (and rectangular headlighted) W123s parked in his driveway. Today, you'll only find smelly bio-fuel lovin' hippies and cabbies from non-oil-exporting Middle Eastern autocracies driving these bad boys.

This promotional video has it all: muscle-bound guy, W123 hoonage, and even rally footage. The scariest part has to be the 0-100 km/hr time for the 200D: 31.0 (!) seconds.
