That looks like a 300E. If you want an 80s Diesel in that style, it was only available in 87 as the 300D sedan and 300TD wagon.

Look on ebay.

They are arranged according to model.
190-200-300 and on...on.

Once you choose the model then choose
a year.

Many pictures, many hours of searching

Top of the line? Well just find an AMG Hammer, a revamped 300E, and you'll have one of the true supercars from the period. A four door sedan that could pass a Countach!
