The G-Wagon, short for Geländewagen or cross-country vehicle, was a product of simple utilitarian engineering. Designed for one purpose and whose simplicity has now created such an entrenched fan-base that production is still on-going today. Demand came from all over the world as well as many exploratory trips including one to Siberia, the world’s coldest region and driving a standard model travelling 19,000km without breakdown in temperatures as low as -63°F. This Mercedes-Benz G-Class or G-Wagon is a classic example of the German-made UK edition cross-country, four-wheel drive sport utility vehicles. By being one of the few vehicles to incorporate three fully locking differentials, this makes for a unique experience on off-road terrains. Originally developed as a military vehicle, to be then approved for civilian use, its clientele of A-list celebrities and larger than life public figures proved it to be a competent mode of transport ensuring its consistent popular demand across the globe.
Originally registered on 22nd May 1987, this five-door G-Wagon is finished in metallic red with beige leather interior. With a rugged 2746cc petrol engine mated to an automatic gearbox, this 280GE offers comfort, reliability and prestige all under one roof. Supplied with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until 3rd June 2019, this Mercedes-Benz is a great way to overcome the adverse motoring conditions with the winter looming. Offered for sale at a very realistic estimate given the demand for such vehicles.
