Three Days Late: 1978 Mercedes Factory Rally Car

This 1978 Mercedes Benz 280E factory rally car was just sold at auction on Saturday! We missed it, but the details are so good that we decided to share it anyway. The car was apparently a factory test vehicle for early ABS brakes, and is one of the more interesting W123’s we have come across. It actually wouldn’t be very difficult to make a clone for regular street use. Find the details here at Seidel and Friedrich Auctions in Ladenburg, Germany where the car apparently sold for 30,000 Euro. Special thanks to BaT reader Ron B. for this find!
