1968, which is a time of change. The old wing rear is obsolete. Simplicity instead of Americanism. Almost all measurements are reduced, but not the wheelbase, which will larger. In general the suspension, it is next to the design the biggest hit of the new Mercedes. BMW (700 and 1500) it has since many years already and now it benefits finally. Although it is not called semi-trailing arm rear axle, but it is one. Never more positive precipitation during rebound. In addition two more (because of the brake dive compensation) against each other twisted wishbones at the front axle and you have a really secure suspension.

There are people who regard this simple Mercedes for one of the nicest that has ever been built - but only related to the limousines. What one does not see is the revised passive safety. During its model career, it will even be equipped with safety belts. But even its crash behavior is convincing. A (prejudice) judgment however the /8 until today will not get rid of, namely that it also had in relation to rust a certain leadership. That it was nonetheless a durable car, demonstrates an exemplar with 4.6 million kilometers on the speedometer in the Museum in Stuttgart.

The testers from then the car is almost too simple. They get the six-cylinders in their sights. Their only moderately improvedacceleration is e.g. attributed also the more effective constant pressure carburetors of the four cylinders. Also the consumption is criticized in view of the smaller body. Thereby the car feels amazingly handy for the class despite the slightly larger front load.

The rest is quickly told. The smaller four-cylinder remained in principle the same, the smaller six cylinders also. With the larger six-cylinders something happens probably mainly due to the S-class. During its model development there are even DOHC-engines, what speeds allow over 200 km/h, however, at one then common, significantly supplement consumption. Despite these highlights and because of the affordable fuel consumption the diesel is absolutely the best-selling. Also here is operated a lot of model development, e.g. with a relatively novel five-cylinder, the then most powerful passenger car diesel. 11/11
