    So much rave has surrounded this remarkable German machine as it hits a tremendous milestone of undiluted class and ruggedness. Mercedes-Benz is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the rugged G-Class wagon with a limited-edition model dubbed 35 Edition. The unveiling of this new stunner comes just a few days after Gunther Holtorf –a former manager at Lufthansa-wrapped up his world-wide adventure which began in 1988 with the same G-Wagon and the same engine which reads 890,000km. This feat will go down in history as his vehicle will be displayed in the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart.

    Options for what you can get under the hood are the 3.0-liter diesel-burning V6 G350 BlueTEC which churns out 211 horsepower and 398 lb-ft. of torque or the more powerful G500 which packs a 5.5-liter V8 tuned powerhouse with top speed of 255km/hr capable of producing 387 hp and 390 lb-ft. torque. The diesel powered V6 engine is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission and is capable of hitting 100km/hr in 9.1seconds.

    The G350 BlueTEC will cost €101,031 (approximately $130,000) and the G500 will retail for €112,812 (roughly $145,000).
