Mercedes G500 4×4², impressive but not for everyone

24 May 2016

This video gives some great insights into what makes the Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4² such an exceptional car.

Heavy duty portal axles, dual strut springs and adjustable dampers, which are controlled from the cabin, are all part of  changes that Merceds-Benz made to turn a regular G500 into the 4×4². The ground clearance is a whopping 450mm, with the fording depth to be up to one meter.

It’s powered AMG’s twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine that pushes out 310kW.

The G500 4×4² featured here sports the same optional $14 000 (R220 000) paint job as the regular G-class that Mike Horn will be using in his #Pole2Pole expedition.
