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 grills 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 describe the core elements of the AMG brand; 'Driving Performance'.
This 2004 Mercedes-Benz G400 CDi is fitted with the four litre diesel engine and automatic gearbox and has recently received a face-lift having the later AMG body kit, 19inch AMG wheels and LED lights fitted at a cost of over £3,000. Finished in black with black leather interior, this car is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in July 2016 and old MoT certificates. The ergonomics of a G-Wagon offer a very comfortable driving experience whether driving in town or on the open road and this lefthand drive model is on offer at a fraction of the cost of a new vehicle.
