    In August 1953, a new era dawns with the Mercedes-Benz 180. Its self-supporting construction marks the farewell to the traditional design of chassis and independent body. The “pontoon”-like shape is even considered modern and reduces air resistance and fuel consumption, making the type 180 symbolic of the innovative ability of Mercedes-Benz. Only the engine is taken from the 170 S.
