G for off-road vehicle – a portrait of the Mercedes Benz G model

The origins of the Mercedes G model can be traced back to 1973: that was when the first wooden model was made. Several years of development work followed before the first G-Class actually hit the road. Back then, nobody could have guessed that this would become one of the best-known and most popular off-road vehicles of all time.

In this illustrated book, Norbert Giesen follows the success of the G-Class models. In carefully researched texts, he sheds light on the background to their creation and development from 1979 to the early 1990s. Breathtaking series of images place the various G models in the context of their time and make this book a fantastic portrait of the history of the Mercedes brand.

  • Everything about the long-running cross-country favorite from Mercedes: a look at the “classic” era of the G model from 1979 to the early 1990s
  • Lovingly designed illustrated book with original photos from the Mercedes archives: many model variants and special G models in contemporary photographs
  • The roots of the Mercedes G-Class models: exciting background information on the history of the creation of the off-road classic
  • Under the hood of the G models: technical data and special features of the SUV with the star

A piece of automotive history: the Mercedes all-rounder for road and off-road

The off-road Benz was sold from 1979 and made a career not only in private hands, but also with authorities and the military. As a popemobile, he even drives with divine blessing. The popularity of the G-model was no coincidence: it acquired its legendary off-road talents from Steyr-Daimler-Puch in Austria. There was a use as a hunting and patrol car in Iran in the specifications. The G even has sporting qualities, because in 1983 Jacky Ickx was able to win the toughest off-road test of all, the Paris-Dakar Rally, with it. The fact that Mercedes now sells this jack-of-all-trades primarily to well-heeled city dwellers does not detract from its popularity.

A great gift book for car lovers and SUV enthusiasts!
