The German word Gelandewagen translates as “cross country vehicle”. This abbreviates to G-Wagen and is a fitting name for the four-wheel drive luxury SUV manufactured by Magna Steyr in Austria and sold by Mercedes-Benz. The G-Wagen has enjoyed an impressive build run of over 40 years, during which time notable owners have included the Vatican who took delivery of a specially made G-Wagen which included a clear top and served as the Popemobile, a car that now has permanent residence in the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart.
The powerful looks of this impressive G-Wagen certainly match the manufacturers stated 499bhp for this model. In addition to the luxurious and high level of standard equipment that this car was delivered with, an invoice present in the file shows a series of Brabus enhancements that cost over €41,000. These include the Widestar body conversion and fine leather interior trim which have created a car with striking looks. With its brilliant white bodywork, black wheels, black and orange quilted leather seats and suede roof lining, this G-Wagen will certainly turn heads. Offered to auction with a stamped service book, various bills and receipts, a V5C registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate, this superbly well-equipped G-Wagen is available at a fraction of its original cost.
