- Car brand: Mercedes-Benz
- Convertible roof type: Fabric
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class Cabriolet was a classic off-road vehicle that has long had a committed following. Like the Land-Rover Defender, it began life as a functional all-terrain vehicle that has been modernised over time to keep it up-to-date. Unlike the Defender though the G-Class has become a desirable luxury car yet it has done this without losing its off-road credentials. The G has a Low range ratio gearbox and 3 differential locks to keep you out of trouble on even the slipperiest surfaces. Power has been increased considerably from the early cars with the final G500/G550 models featuring a five and a half litre V8.
The Mercedes G-Class Cabriolet has a power fabric soft-top roof that covers both the passenger and load areas. Structural rigidity is retained with fixed side pillars and a roll-bar. Inside is a luxurious modern interior with seating for four adults. The rear seats fold down independently to increase the load area.
With a 34 year life, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class Cabriolet is one of the longest production runs of any car although they were never built in low quantities and sold to selected markets around the world.
Yes I have run 2 at the same time a300 non turbo which is the best 4×4 workhorse ever developed and a 280 both LWB the 280 is just as good as the 300 but faster and more luxuries I would recommend the G Wagen to everybody as the best 4×4 in the world
