    Mercedes-Benz 300 GD.

Mercedes-Benz 300 GD of Gunther Holtorf.

A total of 897,000 kilometres in 215 countries: that is the impressive record set by the Mercedes-Benz 300 GD of globetrotter Gunther Holtorf, who used 'Otto', the affectionate nickname given to the off-roader, for 26 years as an expedition vehicle. In doing so, he realised one of the brand's advertising promises: 'Where there's a G, there's a way.'
