Mercedes-Benz Classic is devoting its presentation on the history of the G-Class to a living legend: the off-roader, which has been in production for almost 40 years, epitomises the successful combination of maximum off-road capabilities with stylish performance and comfort. Three variants of the 460 series stand for the beginnings of the G-Model first presented in 1979. They are accompanied by a model from the 463 series, one from the 461 series of the 1990s and the new G-Class presented in January 2018. The dramatic presentation of these vehicles clearly shows how the G-Class has evolved over four decades, while nonetheless remaining absolutely true to itself. In the outside area at the main entrance, visitors to the 30th Techno-Classica can see the G-Class in action on the “Iron Schöckl”. This 8-metre-high steel construction is named after the torturous off-road test track on the “Schöckl” mountain near Graz. This is where every generation of the G-Class is exhaustively tested during development. On the “Iron Schöckl”, passengers in the G-Class will experience uphill gradients between 80 and 100 percent, and also stops on downhill gradients of up to 100 percent.
