The only possible pitfall of purchasing a classic car is that no matter how well restored it is, no one can replicate the sense of history and adventure you get with a factory-fresh model. However, this completely unrestored, untouched and unmolested Mercedes Benz W123 serves up the best of both worlds; as it drives as smooth as any modern roadster and feels as nostalgically special as any other classic car on the road.

Currently available via CoolnVintage, the W123 300 D is virtually a car back from the future, as it currently displays just 18,000 KM on the clock and has had one owner from new. The soft suspension and esteemed sure-footing of the W123 remains in tact, while the crisp ivory paintwork remains entirely rust-free.

The W123 is revered for being one of the most reliable models of all-time and despite the fact that there was more than 2.4 million W123 models produced between 1975 and 1986, none remain quite as special as this.
