We are really pleased to offer for sale this super rare and incredibly well preserved flagship W123 280E with the highly desirable manual transmission.
The Mercedes-Benz W123 is an enduring legend in more ways than one. Not only did it enjoy a long production run, but the over-engineered and sturdy saloon was one of the best-engineered cars of all time – if not THE best.
There are survivors the world over, because the W123 is just one of those cars that’s built to take it. Be that as an endurance rally car, working vehicle, family transport or long-distance cruiser, wonderfully engineered like no car before or since and subtly, unobtrusively stylish at the same time.
It’s those very traits that make the W123 as desirable today as it was back then.
Our example being freshly imported from the dry climate of Gauteng Province South Arica, is remarkably fresh and looks ready for anything – but perhaps more interesting is the specification.
It’s a six-cylinder 280 – the flagship – but equipped with manual transmission, whereas the vast majority of 123s were automatic.
She is finished in her factory colours of Astral Silver with Blue MB-Tex leather upholstery showing minimal wear.
