This Mercedes-Benz W123 limousine type has driven… 8 million kilometers!

This taxi in the Canaries has been driving 700 kilometers per day since 1988, setting a real record with just one engine change.

This taxi holds an incredible record. It has traveled the most kilometers in the world, with 8 million kilometers on the odometer. The Mercedes-Benz W123 limousine has proven to be profitable, demonstrating longevity and exceptional performance. It has been tirelessly traveling the roads near Maspalomas in the Canary Islands, Spain for 35 years and is on the verge of entering automotive legend due to the number of kilometers it has traveled.

More than 500 kilometers per day

Looking at the numbers of this car, it’s truly impressive. Since entering circulation in 1988, it has circled the Earth 175 times and traveled 9 times the distance from the Earth to the Moon. That’s quite an achievement!

According to the owner, the engine was replaced once. At least, that’s what was said on the Spanish channel Telecinco.

This taxi, capable of carrying 7 passengers per trip, has transported more than a million people. And it’s not done yet! It is still in great condition, making its owner proud to see that it has survived the years without any issues. However, with 700 kilometers per day, it has certainly been put to the test.

The Web can’t believe it

On social networks, where the photo of the taxi was shared, users expressed their admiration for the car’s longevity: “Congratulations to the builder and the owner. Traveling so many kilometers without any issues, that’s impressive!” or “More than 500 kilometers, it seems too good to be true!” or “The cars of the past are nothing like those of today.”

Nicknamed ‘Dominguito’ (Little Sunday), this taxi is a local institution. Three drivers take turns every day to safely transport passengers to their destination. Some customers prefer this taxi over more modern options, appreciating its vintage charm and reliability.
