Mercedes-benz has hit the 5,00,000 unit production mark of the G-Class SUV also known as G-wagon. The vehicle has a huge fan base because of its distinctive design, outstanding off-road capability and a luxurious cabin. To celebrate this feat, Mercedes gave the 5,00,000th G-Class some unique, retro-looking touches with Agave Green color and new fabric upholstery.
Mercedes G-Class has been in production since 1979 and this special edition is based on Mecedes G 500. It gets a shade of orange for its turn signals from the 1970s automobiles, other cosmetic changes include a blacked-out front fascia and grille over the headlights. The SUV comes with a set of retro looking 5-spoke alloy wheels and features a roof rack that can accessed by the ladder mounted at the rear.
Under the hood, this special edition is powered by a 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 422hp and 610Nm of torque.
The interior of the 500,000th vehicle is inspired by the 280 GE. The middle section of the seat is upholstered in the chequered fabric typical of the time, while the grab handle on the passenger side has “No. 500,000” inscribed in Agave Green.
