Closer to nature.

Punkka sets his viewfinder on Finland's "Big Five": Wolf, brown bear, moose, lynx, and wolverine. The result: an impressive series of close-ups.

Shortest way to nowhere.

... and deserted off-road areas, criss-crossed by crystal clear rivers and lakes.

Face to face with the beast.

"Sometimes I spend days and weeks in the nature of my home country and get to know the animals around me more intensively each time. The G-Class was the perfect partner for this." – Konsta Punkka

Konsta Punkka in interview

Strong DNA. Strong stories. What makes the G-Class a legend? It is the many stories it tells. They are part of its unique DNA. A DNA – stronger than time.
