After 38 years of production, Mercedes-Benz has created the 300,000th example of their famed G-Class vehicle.
The milestone car is a new, obviously, G500 finished in designo mauritius blue metallic with black leather seats inside and white stitching. Also adding some contrast are the black 16-inch wheels that go well against the blue exterior. How did Mercedes-Benz come to create this specific G-Class? Interestingly enough, they asked the fans of the official Facebook page of the G-Class to vote on their favorite spec.
“The G-Class has been produced by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, on behalf of Mercedes-Benz since 1979. Today our off-road icon is more successful than ever,” says Dr Gunnar Güthenke, head of the off-road product group at Mercedes-Benz. The production of 300,000 G-Class models is an impressive milestone. The team which has contributed substantially to this success includes employees who have been part of the story of the G-Class for 38 years. We have enjoyed decades of successful cooperation with Magna Steyr in the production of the G-Class.”
