Following the success of the 190 series produced from 1961(over 350,000 cars), Mercedes announced a facelifted, more powerful 200 series in 1965. The new car looked similar to the out-going 190, which meant it retained the "Fintail" rear wings and angular styling. The 200 had minor trim differences and featured new flasher lamps below the headlamps (replacing the front wing mounted 190 items).
The 200D now had servo assisted, dual-circuit brakes with front discs and a choice of floor or column mounted gearchange. The 200D diesel engine improved performance slightly, although this was academic as most were used as taxis or were exported to developing countries. Production of the "Fintail" 200 lasted until 1968.
