Comments & Reviews

  • Comments: To be sold NO RESERVE at the Barrett Jackson Scottsdale auction January 12 to 20, 2019. The Mercedes-Benz G Class, sometimes called G Wagen, short for Gel√§ndewagen, cross country vehicle, is a mid-size four-wheel drive luxury SUV manufactured by Magna Steyr (formerly Steyr Daimler Puch) in Austria and sold by Mercedes Benz. The G Wagen 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, with a span of 35 years. Development started in 1972, focusing on off-road abilities and maximum safety and comfort. Mercedes Benz engineers in Stuttgart were in charge of design and testing, while the team in Graz developed the production plans. The G-class was developed as a military vehicle from a suggestion by the king of Iran to Mercedes and offered as a civilian version in 1979. The first military in the world to use it was the Argentine Army (Ej√©rcito Argentino) beginning in 1981 with the military model 461. In 1980, the Vatican took delivery of a specially made G Wagen outfitted with a clear thermoplastic top which served as the Popemobile. The Papa G later took up permanent residence at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. The first major refinements were introduced in 1981, including an automatic transmission, air conditioning, an auxiliary fuel tank, protective headlamp grilles and a cable winch. Fuel injection became available in 1982, when the 230 GE was introduced in Turin, along with more comfortable and supportive front seats, auxiliary heating, wider tires and fender flares. For 1985, differential locks, central door locking and a tachometer became standard.
