The G-Class stands crosswise

Stronger than gravity.

The G-Class can do more than other vehicles. A unique stunt shows how our off-road icon confidently delivered on this promise, even on its 40th anniversary.

The G-Class and a dam at the edge of the world — these are the perfect ingredients for a unique stunt. On the 101-metre-high Punta Negra Dam in Argentina, the G 350 d demonstrates that it defies gravity with its weight of 2,451 kilograms.

The proof


Goodbye, gravity.

Over 40 years, we have steadily further developed the G-Class, and yet it has always retained its character and distinctive core values. Its DNA shapes the spirit of the times — as does its allure and the loyalty of its fans. We demonstrate this with a drive over the precipice of a reservoir. The G-Class proves that no matter what the terrain, it conquers every challenge.
