Variations on a theme: Part 2 Mercedes-Benz W114/115 series, 1970s. There were 3 main factory versions of the “stroke 8″ New Generation, 4-door saloon, 2-door coupé and 4-door long wheelbase limousine. For Argentina there was also a 2-door pick-up but the availability of the W 115 series as a chassis for special bodies meant coachbuilders such as Binz created station wagons, ambulances and other variants

Mercedes-Benz 250C, 1969. The W114 coupé was designed by Frenchman Paul Bracq who left Mercedes soon after he designed the Strich Acht to join BMW where he became Head of Design in 1970.

The long wheelbase version of the New Generation sedan was available as a 230 (2.3 litre 6 cylinder), 220D (2.2 litre 4 cylinder diesel) and, after the 1973 facelift, as a 240D (2.4 litre 4 cylinder diesel). It sold in quite substantial numbers with nearly 10,000 being made
