The much beloved W124 series deserves to be special number model (if it's truly 150th).
Great engine choice for this car.Mercs even had straight sixes back then...

This car kicks ass! It was faster in straight line than some Porches of it's time.

But for some reason W124s got heavier and not actually faster in 90s after M104 twin cam engines were introduced.
