2015 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Edition 35

One man, one G, one labor of love. That summarizes the embodiment of an exceptional worldwide experience. At the point when Gunther Holtorf and his significant other Christine set out in their Mercedes-Benz 300 GD to visit whatever number of the nations all throughout the planet as could be allowed, the G-Class was only ten years of age. Today, around 26 years, just shy of 900,000 kilometers, and 215 visited nations later, Gunther Holtorf drove his treasured G – dedicated 'Otto' – back home to Swabia.The long distance race vehicle will invest heavily of spot in the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart-Untert├╝rkheim, where it will go on show to guests in the Classic Cars area from 21 October. As a world-record holder, 'Otto' will likewise be deified in the Guinness World Records. Since the completion of this extraordinary excursion all throughout the planet will harmonize with the 35th commemoration of the G-Class, the event will be set apart with the dispatch of the profoundly select G 350 BlueTEC Edition 35 and G 500 Edition 35 exceptional models. At the point when the vehicle was authoritatively given over to the Mercedes-Benz Museum, Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars, was similarly intrigued by the driver and the vehicle. "I guarantee that there will in any case be a G-Class later on. Will there be more characters of Mr Holtorf's kind later on?
I trust so," said Dr Zetsche. 
For 77-year-old Gunther Holtorf, his Mercedes-Benz 300 GD, which his significant other Christine warmly initiated 'Otto', is basically the campaign vehicle second to none for this sort of (painful) visit. "In 1988, when I purchased the vehicle I was a touch more incredulous with regards to the guarantee made by Mercedes-Benz, in particular "Where there's a G, there's a way".
All things considered, I'd as of now seen something of the world ahead of time and had a harsh thought of what the vehicle would need to suffer on this sort of world visit!" This underlying distrust gave way however to an open confidence in Otto's abilities as the years passed by. Particularly in unsafe circumstances, the advantageous interaction between the Holtorfs and the G-Class developed. Earth - Moon - Earth in addition to 80,000 km under overwhelming conditions.The 300 GD covered more than 250,000 of the just shy of 900,000 kilometers rough terrain, entirely on top of its inborn qualities. On rock or washboard streets, in mud, on pot-holed streets or rough tough stretches in the mountains - for the suspension and body this rebuffing exercise is comparable to around 2.5 million kilometers under ordinary focal European conditions. Notwithstanding the difficult landscape there were likewise the dissimilar meteorological conditions to battle with, which 'Otto' took in its step all through all the world's environment zones - from the unforgiving burning hotness of the desert, through steaming wilderness districts to the freezing cold of the Arctic climes. 
As though the requests on the 300 GD were not currently sufficiently high, 'Otto' entirely needed to fight with overweight. Counting undertaking stuff and food, with jerry jars, working supplies, apparatuses, recuperation gear, spare parts and extra wheels, the campaign vehicle completely weighed in at 3.3 tons – around 500 kilograms in overabundance of the passable gross vehicle weight. The rooftop alone of the crosscountry vehicle needed to take 400 kilograms. In any case, as per the Holtorfs even that couldn't upset the world record vehicle: "Really the G was consistently overladen, which is the reason I fitted it with built up springs and terrible street safeguards. In any case, 'Otto' stays like any series-creation vehicle.
The whole drivetrain with the motor, transmission and axles is as yet unique. Neither the casing nor the body have given any indications of fatigue."When the excursion is an end in itself .When the vehicle crosses the end goal in Stuttgart today, Gunther and his presently expired spouse Christine Holtorf will have gone around 215 nations with Otto. "Gone around - mind you!", focuses on the previous pilot and aviation administrator. "A speedy stop, with a stamp in your identification to demonstrate it and a representative photograph with the vehicle at the line crossing - that was never enough for us! In our eyes, you can just go through a nation whenever you've dove into the specific half of the globe, come into close contact with local people and became more acquainted with their a lot of aspects." Once a nation had been ticked off as per these standards, one more red line was added to the individual world guide "ROUND-THE-WORLD RECORD TOUR 1990 - 2014." This now conclusive world guide is bungled by red lines and, throughout his visit arranging, had opened a couple of entryways for Gunther Holtorf, allowing him to embrace ventures which up until recently had been considered incomprehensible. For example, through completely difficult to reach nations like North Korea and Myanmar or the fabulous visit through China across 25,000 kilometers with just him in the driver's seat.
Gunther Holtorf calls these excursions "pioneer visits" - the initial time an unfamiliar vehicle with an unfamiliar driver was permitted to pass through the specific country. Before 'Otto' gets his conclusive space in the Mercedes-Benz Museum, he will be conveyed out and about again for a considerable length of time from the finish of February 2015 - going around the Mercedes-Benz Centers and friends possessed deals and administration outlets in Germany and Europe. 'Otto' will go with a visiting show grew uniquely for the vehicle, describing his intriguing visits and most noteworthy encounters.

As the body which has been unaltered for a very long time reliably illustrates, its own lines are the main way that the G-Class never adventures from. To delineate this again, the selective Edition 35 extraordinary model is accessible for the G 350 BlueTEC and G 500 models to agree with the commemoration. The 18-inch 5-talked light-compound wheels shimmer in dazzling dark, the front and back guard, wheel curve linings, outside mirrors and the rooftop shimmer in obsidian dark metallic.
