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 and Brabus.
Originally supplied to Dubai, it is thought this car was used for the first year of its life, then put into storage. The current vendor purchased the car in 2017 and used this Brabus as his daily driver in Dubai. Upon returning to the UK he brought the car with him and it was first registered with the DVLA on 9th March 2021. In July 2019 the interior was retrimmed by Powertech Auto Services in Dubai, this appears to have been carried out to an excellent standard. Presenting in Obsidian Black with black leather interior, this exceptional Brabus GV12 is a very well-appointed vehicle with standard equipment including Media interface and Harman Kardon surround sound system. Additional Brabus equipment includes front and rear skirts, sports exhaust system, suspension upgrades and importantly a high performance braking system - very necessary taking into account power is delivered via a 6.3 litre Biturbo V12 engine. These cars are exceptionally rare, this left hand drive, low mileage example presents in fabulous condition. Costing 258,280.00 Euros (plus taxes) when new this Brabus CV12 appears to offer incredible value given the condition and obvious pedigree.
