GTO can you shed some light on the difference between 108 & 109? Are there many in India?

Default Evolution of E class

This is a very informative thread. The evolution of the E class is well explained by V12 in an earlier post. I am adding the pics I took at the MB museum in Stuttgart last year, of the special exhibition that they had celebrating the launch of the new E class (W212).

All the beauties lined up.

All the E's under one roof, within the MB museum.

There was also a drive session which had most of the E classes participating.

A quick question , why the M-B corporation selected the alphabet "W" in their model naming system , is that because of it refers to "Wagen/wagon" ?

Interesting how classic Mercs like the W111, W123, W124 etc. still look so classy....several decades after introduction, but the W201 (a rubbish E Class IMO) already seems outdated. I think Mercedes got the W211 spot on, a timeless design, but the current W212 is hardly evergreen. It'll be out of fashion soon.

Classic Mercs rock!

I believe so though, even their first F1 race car had a "W" nomenclature.
