One year ago, the G-Class Private Lounge was launched as an exclusive meeting place for all G-Class drivers, fans and brand enthusiasts. We look back on a year full of unique stories, exclusive interviews, fascinating videos and lots of insights about the off-road vehicle icon.


Unforgettable adventures, exciting background information, exclusive interviews and unique events:

The G-Class Private Lounge has had so much to offer over the past 365 days to make the hearts of G-Class fans beat faster. We were there when Matthias Malmedie put the off-road vehicle icon to the ultimate off-road test in deep snow and marvelled at the 18 G-Class models of Dutchman Anthony van Liefland. Together, we took a look behind the scenes of the G-Class Experience Center and accompanied G-Class enthusiasts from all over the world. We immersed ourselves in the mysterious world of vampires and were there when artists reinterpreted the off-road legend as an NFT. And we learned a lot: about the longevity and colour palette of the G-Class, its history, the special models, the legendary local Schöckl mountain — and so much more.

A life dedicated to the “G”.

Some collect stamps and opt for a desk job. Anthony van Liefland chose a more unconventional path: Being fascinated by the off-road legend since his childhood years, his collector’s passion led him to own of 18 G-Class models from several eras. What makes such a lifelong passion?

Ultimate driving fun in the snow.
