The Best Car Ever Made? Probably. The Mercedes-Benz W124 Was The Most Influential Modern Era Car.
Published on May 18, 2021
A full review and test drive of a well kept Mercedes 300T, the S124 wagon platform of the venerable W124 series. It’s safe to say that the W124 was groundbreaking, and set the standard for cars that would come afterward. It’s quite possibly - probably, even - the best car ever built.
But it’s not infallible - to own one is to own a very drivable classic, but it won’t happen without maintenance and repairs - this is an incredible, durable, and reliable machine - but it’s meant to be serviced and driven forever, not something to be thrown away after 10 to 15 years, like many cars made today.
No matter what, the car is a legend, and the rewards of ownership far exceed the cost of having one around. It’s a car that wins your heart, and becomes part of the family.
