This Mercedes model is known in Germany as the "Strich 8" or slash eight in English. This pertains to a practice that Mercedes started where the eight refers to the year of production when the new generation models started which was 1968.
This specific 114/115 model is from 1973 but is still referred to as /8 since it is part of the new generation.
The sedan model of this was especially memorable to me because it was a car that my grandfather which he lent to us to use for several years. It was a most comfortable car and I remember how the doors closed with the security of a bank vault.
The model shown here is the M110 engine which is double overhead inline 6 cylinder engine with a displacement of 2.8 liters.
A real world coupe 1:1 version of this car would be a pricey collectors item.
Kudos to Sunstar for making this model available.
