G wagon covers 549,000 miles across 215 countries

Gunther, Christine and Otto

35 years of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class
Anniversary with world record and special model
Stuttgart. One man, one G, one life's work. That sums up the essence of an unprecedented global adventure. When Gunther Holtorf and his wife Christine set out in their Mercedes-Benz 300 GD to visit as many of the countries around the world as possible, the G-Class was just ten years old. Today, some 26 years, just under 900,000 kilometres, and 215 visited countries later, Gunther Holtorf drove his cherished G – christened 'Otto' – back home to Swabia. The marathon vehicle will take pride of place in the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart- Untertürkheim, where it will go on show to visitors in the Classic Cars section from 21 October. As a world-record holder, 'Otto' will also be immortalised in the Guinness World Records. Since the finish of this unique journey around the world will coincide with the 35th anniversary of the G-Class, the occasion will be marked with the launch of the highly exclusive G 350 BlueTEC Edition 35 and G 500 Edition 35 special models.
