Based on the standard G350d, G350d Professional and G500, the Limited Edition, like previous special G-class models, mainly benefits from a selection of exterior and interior tweaks, which in the case of the G350d consists of five-spoke titanium grey 19-inch AMG alloy wheels, designo Mocha Black metallic paint, tinted windows, chrome, sports and stainless steel packages, saddle brown Nappa leather interior with light brown stitching, heated windscreen, electric sunroof and a Harman Kardon sound system.
The more rugged G350d Professional comes finished in a shade of China Blue with steel bumpers, indicator protectors, front mudflaps, rear ladder, wooden floor compartment and the so-called Professional Off-Road Package. The interior gains heated front seats, a Bluetooth enambled sound system and a heated windscreen. Both models remain mechanically unchanged with the 3.0-litre turbodiesel V6 producing 180 kW and 600 Nm of torque, linked to a 7G-Tronic automatic gearbox.
At the sharp end, the G500 features a Platinum Magno hue with black trim, both the chrome and sports package, black spare wheel cover and on the inside, a Harman Kardon surround sound system, heat insulating dark tinted glass, TV tuner, white stitched black leather seats and Active Distance Control as well as Blind Spot Monitoring and Parking Assist. Up front, the 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 remains as is with rated outputs of 310 kW and 610 Nm of torque, mated to a 7G-Tronic 'box.
Limited to 463 units, all three models also feature a commemorative badge on the centre armrest stating "Schockl proved since 1979" in reference to the Schockl Mountains near the town of Graz, Austria where the G-class has been built and tested.
