Mercedes Puts G-Class Through A Challenging Offroad Experience


One of the last true 4×4 offered for sale is , and the German car maker is keen on demonstrating just how competent its product is in off-road conditions.

In their latest presentation, the company took the G-Class on a challenging off-road experience in Kitzbühel. The venue offers only six kilometers of area to mess around, but its packed with extreme off-road challenges, including trial by gravel, snow, ice, sand and crushed rock.

It’s safe to say that Kitzbühel is one of the most demanding courses in the world, and anyone who dares to tackle it must conquer steep 90% climbs and descents, and outrageous incline angles in their quest to discover the limits of a vehicle.

Mercedes says that without an experienced guide, navigating through the course is nearly impossible, that’s why Christian Vis – an off-road instructor for Mercedes-Benz Driving Events – was put in charge of the virtual tour. The man has more than 20 years of experience in off-road driving, and has a “thing” for pushing himself (and the vehicle) to the limits.

So sit back, relax, and watch how the G500, along with its 422 hp bi-turbo V8, is being driven around the course in a “simple warm-up exercise”.

“You can just do so much with it. With the G-Class, the fun starts where other vehicles reach their limits”, says Christian Vis.

Again, you’re watching a “simple warm-up exercise”. Too bad most of the G-Wagens won’t be used at their full capacity.
