Mercedes Benz W123 Diesel Engine

I've heard that the Mercedes Benz W123 model diesel engine, particularly in the 1985 year is one of the best diesels built. Is there any reason for this, more specific than it just runs well? Is it particularly suited for wvo?

Here's the Wikipedia page on the Mercedes W123:
