Description

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class or G-Wagon, short for Geländewagen (cross-country vehicle), is characterised by its boxy styling and body-on-frame construction. It uses three fully locking differentials, one of the few vehicles to have such a feature. The G-Class is still in production and is one of the longest produced Mercedes-Benz in Daimler’s history. It was developed as a military vehicle from a suggestion by the Shah of Iran and offered as a civilian version in 1979.

A new version was expected for 2007, but ultimately whilst the new GL-Class is a fine performing product in the Mercedes tradition, it was not sufficient to steal the affection for the classic Geländewagen. And so the G-Wagon is still in production and selling well to the current day.

This stunning G-Wagon was supplied new in 1996, finished in midnight blue with a luxurious upgraded Brabus interior in black with red stitching. Sensible upgrades include a new grille, LED front and rear lights and a new instrument cluster fitted by Mercedes-Benz of Northampton in 2011. There is an extensive main dealer and marque specialist service history with the car and factory fitted tilt and slide sunroof. A wonderful example of this ever popular model.
