The G-Class: a cross-country vehicle with many faces.

Beach, land, river: the G-Model can overcome many obstacles. In a period spanning more than 38 years, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class has become the high flyer among cross-country vehicles – never once losing its angular exterior shape .

Development work began as early as 1972. The aim behind the project called "Haflinger II" was to create an all-wheel-drive vehicle for civilian and military purposes in partnership with the Austrian company Steyr-Puch. Official production of the G-Model began in 1979.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is available as a four-door model, a two-door model, with short or long wheelbase, and as a Cabriolet or Panel Van.

G-Class début in spring 1979.

The current G-Class has been around since 1979. It delivers impressive proof of how important tradition is for Mercedes-Benz, but also innovation, as its technology has always been state of the art.

John Paul II used a Mercedes-Benz 230 G as a Popemobile back in 1980.

A G-Class for the Pope: the "Popemobile".

After Pope John Paul II used a 230 G as his "Popemobile" when visiting Germany in 1980, the cross-country vehicle became instantly recognisable to a wide audience.

The Plexiglass dome protected the Holy Father from wind and rain. But his followers were still able to see him. The white G-Model was bulletproof and came equipped with grab handles so that the Pope could stand comfortably and safely whilst driving through throngs of faithful followers.

In 1983, Jacky Ickx won the legendary Paris-Dakar rally in a Mercedes-Benz 280 GE.

Victory at the 1983 Paris-Dakar rally.

The G-Model has even been successful in motorsport: Jacky Ickx and his co-driver, the actor Claude Brasseur, won the 1983 Paris-Dakar rally in a 280 GE.

The G 400 CDI with boat trailer symbolised the new Mercedes-Benz G-Class W 463 model series – functionality and luxury.

Uncompromising off-road capability and luxury: the 463 model series.

The 463 model series introduced in 1989 saw Mercedes-Benz positioning its cross-country model in the luxury segment, too. The models featured permanent all-wheel drive to enable installation of a deactivatable ABS system.

Even outside of the luxury segment, the G-Class long ago made the step from an out-and-out workhorse to an all-wheel-drive vehicle with refined manners. The sparse interior appointments gave way to a comfortable ambience, and the choice of optional extras grew.

The tiniest defects – discovered and marked in the light tunnel – are, of course, corrected before the G-Class is delivered.

The light tunnel shows up even minute irregularities.

Every Mercedes-Benz G-Class is manufactured by hand from around 3000 individual parts.

Only after over 100 man-hours does the G-Class leave the manufaktur facility.

With all its variety of models, manufacturing the G-Class still involves manual production on a single production line. From a total of 10,000 individual parts, experienced technicians select the right 3000 or so and then assemble them into a new G-Class with the utmost diligence. A G-Class leaves its place of origin only after more than 100 man-hours – almost three times as many as in the case of machine-made vehicles.

In 1988 Gunther Holtorf set out in his Mercedes-Benz 300 GD with 3-litre diesel engine and 65 kW (88 hp) on a journey that would go down in history as he explored one continent after another. He drove through 215 countries, regions and territories and covered almost 900,000 kilometres – with just one engine. A world record.

On gravel or washboard tracks, in mud, on potholed surfaces or rocky climbs in the mountains – for the suspension and chassis this punishing workout is equivalent to around 2.5 million kilometres under normal central European conditions.
Are you someone like Gunther Holtorf who wants to get away from the beaten track, explore the world and experience the thrill and perfection of Mercedes-Benz at the same time?
