The gleaming Signal Red paintwork is completely unmarked throughout and is as fresh as the day the car sat in the Mercedes Benz Lancaster showroom. The satin black wheel arches, bumpers and Bull Bar are unblemished and look as though they have seen no time on or off the road. It is a credit to the last owner the lengths that they have gone too to ensure this G wagon looks both completely original and new. The G280 side Badges and the Mercedes Benz boot badge were showing some signs of wear (due to over polishing!) so new replacement parts were shipped from Mercedes Benz Germany.
G wagons have a huge following and it is common place for owners to modify their cars and fit random facelift and non-Mercedes parts to cover the signs of wear and tear and the ravages of age. This is where this pampered G280 stands apart from the plethora of messed around cars, thanks to its' Mercedes Benz purist ownership.
The original signal red paint is still present and vibrant under the wheel arches and the underside of the car. The chassis is painted in gleaming black rust proof paint to offer protection wherever this unstoppable vehicle marauds. The exposed chassis can be seen clearly from the outside of the car and is very much part of a G wagons appeal.
The G wagon's cabin is in timewarp condition. The seats show no signs of wear and the carpets are perfect and unmarked conditon. The car has never been smoked in and the front and rear ashtrays are unused. In fact, the car actually smells like a new Mercedes.
The dashboard is clad with stylish walnut wood and is tastefully complemented by the addition of a genuine Mercedes G wagon walnut wood and leather steering wheel supplied from Germany. This is the only minor enhancement to this as new G wagon which deviates from the factory specification. The original steering wheel is available should the new owner want it.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This example has only covered a mere 79,000 miles and has an impeccable full service history to back up the mileage, so as you would expect it is in perfect mechanical order. The car has just been serviced by reputable Mercedes Specialist SS Motors of Weybridge. This work included a cleaning of the fuel system, a lubrication service and a multipoint inspection. The car passed its MOT in August 2013 with no advisories.
The 4 speed automatic gearbox feels light and accurate shifting through the gears and makes the big G wagon cruise along effortlessly. Quite simply this feels like driving a new G Wagon.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The upgraded Sportline alloys have been refurbished to as new condition and are shod in matching Marshall tyres. The front and rear brakes are in perfect working condition and make little effort to bring this stunning 4 x 4 to a standstill.
The G280 was originally ordered by Lancaster Mercedes Benz Hertfordshere as their managing director's car who used it for 4 months when it was sold to its last owner. Initially, the vehicle was registered to his company and in May 2005 he transferred it into his private name. As the vehicle was run through his company it wanted for nothing and was maintained impeccably, predominately by Mercedes Benz main dealers. The car has had 14 services as stamped in the original service book.
The owner took the vehicle off the road in 2007 where it remained covered in his heated garage until being recommisioned earlier this year.
In addition to the original service book the car also comes with the original leather wallet, Original sales brochure, owner's manual, Original Blaupunkt Cambridge Audio manual, Original Mercedes Benz Touring Guarantee book, Workshop directory Europe, and UK Dealer directories. It even has the original business card from the salesman who sold the car back in 1990!
