six wheeled Mercedes

Hi Scott, answering your questions and the

The G 4 is allways causing a lot of confusion, the years I,ve become a on this theme and have more often asked to solve difficult matters the G 4.

Starting with just a few G1 (Gelдnde in German) vehicles in Daimler-Benz was to produce a line of cross-country cars intended for the Armed Forces.

The G3 was introduced in 1928.Daimler-Benz began to discuss a new and version of the 6-Cylinder G3 allready in 1931, using the designation G4 for new project, aiming at futher of a design suitable to the armed and competitive when compared yo the put forward by the other.German manufactures of cross-country vehicles. For some the works were already in May asked by a representative of the Armed to use the designation G3a instead of G4 from on. The G3a was introduced in 1933 and it was produced up to

The G4 designation would instead be for cross-country passenger equipped the 8-cilinder 5 litre and 5,4 litre engine, in this case supercharger as in the 500K and 540K Driven on both rear this vehicle had 4-wheel in a sense, but there was never a produced driving on the front

Intended for use by the German government, The and the Armed Forces only,the G4 was offered for sale to the public. in 1934 it was produced throughout the and right up to 1943, being modified, improved, rebuild, and armoured.

Weigting about 4,5 tons laden and ready for duty, the G4 was put to extremely hard work and had to very trying conditions the war. In reality too heavy and too slow ( with a 67 km/h top ), it was contrary to what is sometimes never futher developed six-wheel drive. This explains why the only fifty-seven ever produced.

Today are only four of G4s known to
