At last, and from renowned motoring writer Brian Long, the history of the hugely popular Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen is revealed. Produced in SWB and LWB guises, and including station wagons, vans, convertibles, and a large number of specials, over 200,000 examples of the series have been sold since its release in 1979. Now, thanks to the full co-operation of the Stuttgart factory, this book covers each and every variant from a worldwide sales perspective. Packed full of detail and contemporary colour photography, this is the first time such comprehensive information has been presented in English, making it the perfect book for G-Wagen enthusiasts and followers of Mercedes lore.

Independent Reviews

The book details the history of the Mercedes, from its origins in the agricultural workhorse Unimog right up to almost unrecognisable 2016 model. Fans of the car will enjoy this comprehensive look at one of the most popular and enduring 4x4s.
