Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen

It’s the 4x4 that Mercedes-Benz simply refuses to kill off. Yes, after 38 years of continuous production, the G-Class (or G-Wagen as it was originally known) is still going strong, and is nowadays a seriously upmarket offering that only the very wealthy can afford.

It wasn’t cheap (despite being fairly basic in spec) and it wasn’t a huge seller by Mercedes standards, but this rag-top 4x4 was ultra-tough, great off-road... and a bit of a looker.
