Prototyp: To convert some of the popular V160 locomotives, the DB ordered high-performance AVCO Lycoming type T53-L13 turbines from the former Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz plants. From the year 1970 the units were integrated into the locomotives which were then redesignated series 210. The locomotives with the operating numbers 210 001-008 quickly started to operate on their standard lines. The locomotives hauled on a daily basis the express train “TEE Bavaria” as well as several other heavy express trains on the lines between the Bavarian state capital of Munich and Lindau.
