Holy moly that's a price tag and a half!

From looking at the car I would have expected it to be closer to the cost of a Defender!

I'm guessing if the whole ADF fleet get's replaced by these it would be heft on the tax payers pocket, especially once all the mods are done. Would be a heap more than the Defenders I'd say.

I'd say these would have to be a bit more comfortable than a Defender.

Yeah looks pretty flash in there.

From seeing the outside I expected it to be a bit more ... spartan inside.

Unless something has changed it will be a G-Wagen, not G-Wagon...

You;d be INSANE to get one of those over a D4 or Range Rover... but I guess there are plenty of madmen about the place.

Yeh, I reckon you'd only get one for the pose value and assuming $$$ was no option - pocket money for some.

The only good thing about those G-Wagons is the fully sync. transfer box. Of course they need a big engine. Just look at the weight...and the nice styling. My toolbox has a nicer shape...just my 2c.marc

I would definitely have one of these. I think they look great. Good offroad too, with factory difflocks.

I spoke to one of the senior blokes at the merc stand in the Syd. motor show about the G-wagen(he was handeling some of the ADF order as well) and he was not happy with the fact that they where limited to bringing in 100 of the g-wagens:eek:(most had been sold already!!!) for civilians in Aus. as the world demand had outstripped the supply. They are similar to a def in that they are hand built(to a slightly higher standard;)) and take about 2-3 times longer than a ML or GL class merc to make.
