The Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen is so usually thought to be one of many coolest automobiles to roam the blacktop. After a brief hiatus between 2017-2018, the German automaker resurrected the G-Class SUV with modern-day mechanics and applied sciences to please even the fussiest franconian.
Unbiased suspension, touchscreens, and air con are all effectively and good, however they’ll’t compete with the übercool enchantment of a classic mannequin. Enter this 1986 Mercedes-Benz 230GE Auto 4WD. We’ll depart you to ogle on the footage for a short while earlier than persevering with on.
Manufacturing of the enduring Geländewagen for the general public began in 1979 – the Vatican took supply of a ‘Papa G’ Popemobile in 1980 – however it wasn’t till 1982 that the 230GE variant was launched. This 1986 mannequin arrived earlier than Mercedes gave it a facelift in 1990, so it represents one of many first designs to depart the manufacturing facility in Graz, Austria.
After leaving Austria, this explicit mannequin ultimately discovered its solution to Japan, earlier than being imported into Australia, making it an extremely uncommon discover on these shores. Based on the vendor, it’s been saved mechanically sound all through its life and has even benefitted from a brand new exhaust and off-road suspension, making it one-of-a-kind.

The mileage for a automobile of this age is low, too, with simply 83,000kms on the clock, however we’ll admit the inside seems to be just a little dated, nevertheless, for a automobile over 30 years outdated, it’s completely acceptable.
