No Its not Speedy. As Karl pointed out, no Tata product came with an OM-616 engine. It was the Matador/Trax which in fact used the particular engine, but im sure you meant that only as I know, that you know your cars and that was a typo.
for that i meant to write trax, and not tata 407. but was doing three things at a time so did not check.
is this the maroon 300 td with the golden BBS wheels that you picked up or the blue one with wheel caps.

Yes thats the model code - W123. But the year mentioned is 1884, so 2007 - 1884 = 123.

Obviously its a typing error, it can't be 1884.
