Jon Olsson Is Selling His Custom Mercedes G500 4×4² – Again

Former professional skier and YouTube Jon Olsson is known for his love of customizing extremely expensive exotics and has announced that his distinctive Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4² is up for grabs.

We’ve shared images and videos of the overhauled G-Wagen in the past and in August last year, it was briefly listed up for sale. However, it didn’t and has remained in the hands of Olsson since then, while earlier this year, it was outfitted with a bespoke soft top.

Olsson’s G500 4×4² is unique because, in late 2017, he decided to chop off its roof and turn it into a roadster. He also cut the front windshield so the off-roader could fit in the small parking garages found under Monaco. In a recent vlog, Olsson confirmed he is parting ways with the vehicle after receiving various offers for it.

It’s not just the roof, or lack thereof, that makes this G-Class unique, though. In addition, it has undergone comprehensive powertrain work with its twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 now pumping out a mighty 850 horses. There is also a bespoke exhaust system which rumbles unlike any other G-Class.

The vehicle is available through Supergarage in Marbella, but no asking price has been made public. That’s not a surprise considering how much work has been done to this G-Class, making it rather difficult to value. We suspect that those interested in buying it will engage in a bidding war that could see it sell for much, much more than its €226,100 ($250,500) sticker price when it was new.

    I’d rather take the Black Ops Mil-Spec Hummer H1 over this, any day.

    I thought it was a children’s toy for a moment.

    This is how Jon Olsson does with cars :
    – buys it
    – sends it at Germany or Netherlands to turn it into a crazy-ass project
    – makes a lot buzz
    – sells it
    – repeat

        Get rid of the haterade. It’s bad for you.

  • Andrewthecarguy

    The video is funny – not rehearsed at all.
    If you have money to customize that thing, you have money to buy a ‘normal’ family car lol.

    The useless became even more useless

    • Ben

      I can’t even imagine the amount of chassis flex offroad…

    I mean, just get a baja bug

  • Andrewthecarguy

    Ha! Lols…I see him as just another dude that caught the social media wave at just the right time. Outrageous sells, and this is definitely outrageous. People will buy crap, I mean bollocks 🙂 all day long.

  • Speednote10 .

    First of all the Landaulet is $1mil used, I doubt those interested in Olsson’s car are cross shopping with that thing. He also put it up for sale just last week, yet you seem to argue that despite him having had several people contacting him to buy the car even when it wasn’t for sale, he still “struggles to generate artificial hype” whatever that means… (do you have a gadget that measures the hype or how do you know…?)

    I wouldn’t buy that car at half price but I also don’t see the purpose of having to make up the most cynical explanations possible when a stranger is selling his car just because I don’t like it.
