An instant success, a 12-month waiting list soon formed, buyers clamouring to get their hands on virtually any model they could.
A wide choice of engines was available, from the economical 2.0-litre and 2.3-litre four cylinder units, to the impressive if rather juicy 3.0-litre sixes which offered plenty of Autobahn performance. The range continued to sell briskly unit it was replaced by the equally fine W124 range in 1985.
