55HP AND an automatic? Wouldn't it just be faster to walk?

Yeah, it might keep up with an automatic 240D.

With an automatic 200D, a full Italian Tuneup would just be going with the flow in the left lane, I think the top speed is like 84mph in one of those.

Let's not kid ourselves, now.... The left lane traffic around Birmingham goes a steady 90.

I like that it has the same power output as a 1.0l 3-cylinder Geo Metro. That makes me smile-- even 240D owners have bragging rights on that one!

wow, that's a lot of money for such a low powered vehicle. the bumpers, lights, and manual everything is kinda cool, but 2500.00, wow... if a 4 speed, maybe... auto, no way.

Think thats slow. I believe Mercedes made a 200TD too. That would be even slower with the extra weight from the wagon body.

Didn't this thing do a 0-100km/h in something like 31 seconds? That's just dangerous on the highway.

Worth anything as a collectible?? If it's indeed that slow (and I suspect it is), slap some antique plates on it, and drive it sparingly.

It should hopefully be able to keep up in festivals and parades for classic car shows and stuff. I agree with the make it a classic idea.
