Here's one:

Yes! That is the Cossie! They were cool because one of the reasons MB released them as a production car was because they had to sell a certain number for homologation so they could race them in the european touring car series. There were 2 engines, a 2.3 and a 2.5 both built by cosworth in the UK. For the time, they were considered performance saloons, putting out about 200 hp. They also had cool self leveling suspension and a sweet set of gauges in the center console.
