The 1988 Mercedes 280 G-Wagon, also known as the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, is an iconic and rugged luxury SUV that has stood the test of time. Introduced in 1979, this vehicle has maintained its distinctive boxy shape and exceptional off-road capabilities. The 280 G-Wagon of 1988 was powered by a robust 2.8 litre inline-six engine, delivering ample torque for challenging terrains. Its military origins are evident in its durable construction, with a ladder frame and three locking differentials that ensure exceptional off-road performance. Over the years, it has become a symbol of status and adventure, cherished for its timeless design and unmatched reliability.
First registered on 10th May 1988 and offered in black with the original tartan grey Mercedes trim, this desirable long wheelbase 280 GE is fitted with a 2.8 litre petrol engine that is mated to an automatic transmission. This example also features a ‘jump seat’ to the rear, so in total it has space for nine passengers. This 280 GE boasts just four previous owners, a V5C registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate.
