This year marks the eighth time that the G-Class, which has been in production for almost 32 years, has emerged victorious in the important reader survey conducted by specialist publication ‘Off Road’.
The first awards received by the off-road classic date back almost as far as the date of creation of the G-Class itself.

Readers of the specialist publication “auto motor und sport” alone
