Guinness World Record in a G-class

21.10.2014

WHEN Gunther Holtorf and his wife, Christine, set out in their Mercedes-Benz 300 GD to visit as many of the countries around the world as possible, the G-Class was just ten years old. Today, some 26 years, just less than 900 000 kilometres, and 215 visited countries later; Gunther Holtorf drove his cherished G – christened 'Otto' – back home to Swabia, Germany.

This amazing G-class will be kept at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart-Untertürkheim. 'Otto' will also be immortalised in the Guinness World Records. Since the finish of this unique journey around the world will coincide with the 35th anniversary of the G-Class, the occasion will be marked with the launch of the highly exclusive G350 BlueTEC Edition 35 and G500 Edition 35 special models.

Exclusive G-Class Edition 35 special model

The special model will provide; 18-inch 5-spoke light-alloy wheels which sparkle in bright black, the front and rear bumper, wheel arch linings, exterior mirrors and the roof sparkle in obsidian black metallic. Together with the designo mystic white bright or palladium silver metallic paint finishes. Anyone looking for something a little more subtle can also opt for the obsidian black metallic paint finish for the body. The standard-fit Sports package, including with AMG wheel-arch flaring and on the G 500 with sports exhaust system as well as a Chrome package with chrome highlights in the radiator grille, chrome surround on the seat adjustment switch panel and loudspeakers or the door sill panel in the luggage compartment with "Mercedes-Benz" lettering make the vehicle even more attractive. 

Pure luxury and comfort in the interior

Two high-grade leather upholstery and appointments options are available either in two-tone designo porcelain/black or single-tone designo black. In both cases red contrasting topstitching underscores the sporty touch of the special model. Together with the Exclusive package with leather-covered dashboard, AMG performance steering wheel and designo trim in black piano lacquer as well as the roof liner in stylish designo black DINAMICA microfibre the result is a luxurious interior. The adjustable multi-contour seats with climate control guarantee the hallmark feel-good atmosphere on-board.
