1980 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series Description:

Vehicle Original VIN : 11612012022884
Exclusive to the North American and Japanese markets, 300 SD, the world’s first passenger car with turbocharged diesel engine was introduced in 1978. This model was never offered in Europe where diesel engines were well received and had tax advantages until 1991 when W 140 300 SD was finally introduced in Europe and the international market.
The W116 S-Class incorporated a broad variety of Mercedes-Benz safety innovations.
Four-wheel anti-lock brakes were first featured as an option on the 1978 W116 S-Class. This system prevents the wheels from locking while braking. The system improves steering control during hard braking situations, and to shorten brake distances.
Strengthened body structure. The W116 featured a more stable security passenger cell with a stiffened roof frame structure. High strength roof and door pillars, along with other reinforced zones, provided enhanced vehicle occupant protection.
Deformation zones (crumple zones) in the front and rear.
A padded dashboard, deformable switches and controls, and a four-spoke steering wheel with impact absorber and broad impact cushion aimed to reduce occupant injury during collisions.
The fuel tank was no longer fitted at the rear end but was now placed above the rear axle for added protection.
Wraparound turn signals made it easier to communicate with nearby drivers.
Cult crazy, this desirable example is in “Pret a Porter” (ready to wear) condition. It works, feels, and drives just like it should. Super safe, super solid. Great quality and dependability. They just don’t make them like this anymore. Prices on these beauties are through the roof. Don’t let this sweet deal get away from you. Love it, drive it, garage it, and allow it to be part of your legacy.
