THE MERCEDES-BENZ G-WAGON

One of the most formidable and rugged off-road vehicles of all time, the Mercedes G-glass was originally designed for military use. Mercedes joined forces with Steyr-Daimler-Puch to produce the vehicle in Gaz, Austria. Quickly realizing the greater potential of the vehicle outside of the armed forces, a civilian version was made available in 1979. It was not until 2002 that the United States received its own G. Although, Mercedes trudged through great lengths to move the vehicle upmarket away from its agrarian roots. As such, only V8 engine options were available and the interior was filled with plenty of wood, leather, and numerous luxury features.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This awesome off-road dominator has just received a comprehensive, fully-documented, body-off restoration by marque specialists. Every aspect of this truck has been thoroughly inspected and either upgraded or restored. The countless hours of detailed and meticulous craftsmanship seamlessly blend the iconic, vintage design with modern technology, creating a one-of-a-kind vehicle.

During the restoration, the body was stripped to bare metal and media blasted prior to painting in Sandstorm Yellow. Inside, the well-bolstered bucket seats and rear benches are covered in exceptional hand crafted, two-tone vegan leather, providing comfortable experience for up to six passengers, who are all protected by the custom-built, extra-strength roll-bar and an optional soft top. Under its beautiful skin lies the fully rebuilt, indestructible 2.5-liter diesel connected to a five-speed manual transmission. Whether cruising on the highway or navigating the roughest of terrain, the raptor suspension components, steel wheels, and new Cooper Discoverer SST Pro tires ensure that this 4x4 is prepared for anything that you throw at it.

The overarching theme of the build was to keep true to the look and feel of the original icon. That being said, sprinkled throughout are high-end improvements for a more enjoyable experience (e.g. LED lighting and a Bluetooth-enabled Pioneer sound system). Accompanying the vehicle is extensive photo documentation of the world-class restoration. With room for plenty of friends to hit the road or trail, this convertible G250 is a top example of the rarely seen Mercedes-Benz off-roader that will be the envy of the crowd, whether at a show or off-road event.
