Lot 243 - 2001 Mercedes-Benz G55 Brabus
|Estimate||£26,000 - £34,000|
|Result||Sold - £33,040|
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class or G-Wagon, short for Geländewagen, (or cross-country vehicle) uses two fully locking differentials and represents one of the few vehicles to have such a feature. The G-class was developed as a military vehicle from a suggestion by the Shah of Iran and offered as a civilian version in 1979. 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. Unsurprisingly, this enormously competent four-wheel drive has, like a number of other Mercedes-Benz vehicles, come under the infinite scrutiny of AMG. Around the world, these three distinctive letters embody automotive high performance, exclusivity and dynamic driving pleasure but it is two words that best describes the core elements of the AMG brand, 'Driving Performance'. Mercedes-AMG specialises in unique, high-performance vehicles; its sporty saloons, SUVs, coupés, cabriolets, roadsters and specially built one-off models constitute a product portfolio which meets its customers' every wish.
Brabus take a G-Wagon to the next level in terms of style and performance. It almost defies logic that a relatively basic shaped vehicle can be propelled with such speed as a G55 Brabus. The performance from the engine is complimented by a high-tech and reliable drive-train system. This example has been wrapped in matt black with a black interior and alcantara dashboard. The ergonomics of a G-Wagon offer a very comfortable driving experience and whether driving in town or on the open road. This lefthand drive Mercedes-Benz is on offer at a fraction of the cost of a new vehicle.
