– Don’t follow the G-wagon, you won’t make it –
And that is no lie, because apart from being an icon in Amsterdam South these days, the Mercedes Geländewagen is also unstoppable as soon as the tarmac roads stop. Only then do you understand why Mercedes has been producing this car (almost) unchanged for over forty years.
The roots of off-road know-how for Mercedes starts back in 1907, when they helped the government in Africa with a car that could reach the colonies. Since then the demand for this kind of vehicles has always remained, where Mercedes finally came up with the G-Class in 1979. The development of the G-Class was already in full swing in 1972.
In the past forty years, many special variations have been released, where even the Pope in Rome had one built with a glass dome on the back. Ours is from 2004, which was already a version with comfort and options. Because it is now over 15 years old, it is a Youngtimer! Our G clearly comes from a lovers’ nest, given the conclusive, fully documented maintenance history that has only been carried out at Mercedes.
The 5.0 litre V8 gives such a lot of torque, that you will astonish many cars when joining the motorway. For the entrepreneur, this is an opportunity. A Youngtimer, and only 79 thousand kilometres. Looking for a good bonus for yourself? This is it!
The car that didn’t make it through the crashtest, but made it through the wall – Mercedes G-class
