Predicting the total mileage a car can accumulate over its lifetime is often a gamble, with many people opting to replace their vehicles once they hit the 200,000-kilometer mark.

However, this standard pales in comparison to the extraordinary journey of a particular Mercedes.

Astonishing figures have emerged as a car reaches a staggering 8 million kilometers.

This Mercedes-Benz W123 limousine type, a true icon in Maspalomas, Canary Islands, is on its way to becoming an automotive legend.

700 km a Day

Its statistics are simply surreal: put into service in 1988, it has traveled 175 times around the Earth, equivalent to nine times the Earth-Moon distance.

The owner modestly admits that he has only changed the engine once, according to information from Telecinco.

Remarkably, this taxi, capable of carrying 7 passengers and having transported over a million people, is still running.

Its daily routine: "700 km a day."

This Mercedes stands as a testament to durability and resilience in the automotive world.
