The W201 was, by many standards, far over engineered compared to other competitors in the segment and cost Mercedes-Benz two billion Deutschmarks to develop. Initially offered with the M102 inline-four engine, this engine is tried, true, and frugal. Moreover, it still affords ample power for a car this size without sacrificing the feel and quality of Mercedes-Benz. While this car shows some wear, it appears to remain largely original and stock- something nice to see considering the mileage. Hopefully this one goes to a home willing to give it a new lease on life.
