With fresh styling by Paul Bracq, the New Generation compact range of Mercedes-Benz was launched in January 1968, replacing the Fintail. The fist post war Mercedes-Benz to be engineered on an entirely new chassis, it had vastly improved interior space as well benefiting from revised engines and gearboxes, more advanced suspension and radial tyres which greatly enhanced the ride and handling. The W114 (six-cylinder) model debuted in the form of the 230/250, offering decent performance and higher trim and equipment levels than their four-cylinder W115 cousins. The 250 continued as a mainstay of the model range but somewhat confusingly was later fitted with the more powerful SOHC M130 2.8-litre engine, primarily to cope with tougher emissions controls in the USA. Superbly engineered, the New Generation Mercedes-Benz were also hugely successful, with over 1.8 million sold around the world by the time production ceased in 1976. With classic styling but a thoroughly modern driving experience, decent safety and performance the 250 Compact is an ideal classic car for today's world, one that can still reliably be used on a daily basis. After being delivered in Europe, the owner of this 1975 250/8 relocated to Australia and brought the car with him. The mileage is showing 63,500 with the original service book and manuals included. Equipped with power steering, air conditioning and central locking, this car remains in very good, unrestored condition and will be supplied with a blue slip if sold in NSW.
