Forget About The New G-Class; The Mercedes G500 4×4² Is The One You Want

Unless we’re talking about its six-wheel brethren, off-roaders don’t get more special or hardcore, than a Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4².

It’s derived from the G63 AMG 6×6, bar one axle, and uses the same body as the regular previous-gen G-Wagen, to which it adds a wider track, adjustable suspension and a 450mm (18in) ground clearance.

This, combined with the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 petrol unit that produces 422PS (416hp) and 610Nm (450lb-ft) of torque, pushed to all four wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission, is enough to help it tackle some steep slopes.

Now, if you want a Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4² of your own, you should get ready to spend in excess of $200,000 for a properly maintained one with low mileage.

The example listed by RMSothebys for their Paris, France, auction that takes place on February 7, is definitely worth looking into, as it has only 5,574km (3,464 miles) on the clock. It’s said to be coming from the personal collection of a Mercedes-Benz enthusiast, which means that it has been taken good care of since 2016, when it was shipped new to Italy.

The auction house estimates that it should sell for €180,000-€200,000 ($223,752-$248,614), which is a bit more than the entry-level 2019 G-Class that has a €107,040 ($133,058) starting price. But, like we said, it doesn’t get much more hardcore than this.
