Mercedes Benz has just revealed two very different special editions of the same military inspired classic, the G-Wagen. The EDITION.PUR model is based on the G 280 CDI, and this throwback to the classic off road machine has been equipped to handle anything that could possibly stand in its way. Packaged with a set of all terrain tires, flexible wheel arches, protective guards for the headlamps and grill and a reinforced hood make the PUR a force to be reckoned with.

Whereas the G-Class LIMITED.30 is an expression of elegance, taking the shape of the Mercedes Benz G500 luxury machine. Highlighted by platinum black bodywork, a unique set of alloys and LIMITED lettering on the outside. The inside is classed up with the ultimate in plush high-end trim, like "chablis" colored leather and designo wood trim in finished in anthracite.

2009 Mercedes G-Class LIMITED.30 and G-Class EDITION.PUR
- image 299073

The fact that the G-Class was designed for operations in the most difficult terrain right from the start is made particularly clear by the special EDITION.PUR model based on the G 280 CDI from the 461 model series. This long-wheelbase station wagon pays homage to the first-generation G-Class, has been optimised specifically for the toughest assignments off the beaten track and is therefore the future dream car for world travellers, expedition leaders, confirmed fans of the G-Class and customers who are in search of an automotive rarity with uncompromising reliability and the ability to go anywhere.

With numerous optional extras, the G EDITION.PUR can be equipped for any eventuality, for example with all-terrain tyres in size 265/75 R 16 on aluminium rims, flexible wheel arch flaring, protective grilles for the headlamps and lights, a walk-on bonnet for easier access to the roof rack which is available as an accessory, a towing lug at the front and a two-section rear door. In the interior there are four individual seats upholstered in hard-wearing fabric or man-made leather, rubber floor coverings in the passenger compartment, spray-protected controls and drainage apertures in the footwells. A load compartment with a wood floor, load-securing rings and rails can also be ordered, as can an auxiliary heater or a manually operated air conditioning system.

With the special LIMITED.30 model based on the G 463 model series, Mercedes-Benz is once again demonstrating the manifold possibilities displayed by the G-Class with respect to comfort and prestige. Externally, this long-wheelbase G 500 Station Wagon is distinguished by the designo platinum black paintwork, specially designed light-alloy wheels and LIMITED.30 lettering on the wings. The interior of this G 500 impresses with designo leather in the colour "chablis" and designo wood trim in anthracite poplar.

@BMWM6 - well if you want an ultimate machine for ultimate punishments to the SUV why not choose the very best? I’ll place my bet on the Hummer instead of jeep wrangler.

Id go with landrover but for true off road prowess the jeep wrangler is the best option
