Choose the 1980 230E.

I haven't really time-tested that car. Mostly because it's old and not meant for sporty driving. But it dynamics were very good. I would say up to modern standards. In it's day, when it was launched that 2.3 engine was cutting-edge technology and just as powerful as 6 cylinder engines with much bigger displacement. 0-100 in 11.3 seconds seems like an understatement.
