That is a G Klasse Merceds 4×4. They usually are very reliable vehicles, and its older version actually were the first off road vehicles to cross the notoriously impassable Darien Gap in Panama, considered Hell on Earth and a graveyard for many 4x4s which foolishly attempted to cross it.

And this moron managed to get stuck to the transmission on an urban beach somewhere. The tires alone tell me he is a certified idiot who bought the car because of the cool factor and have not figured out yet how to switch to 4L and get out of that little innocuous sand trap.

And do please notice where he attached the straps, not quite the best place in my humble opinion. The sumbitch needs to have his 4×4 confiscated and also needs a 2×4 treatment stat.

  1. Yeah he’s got some low profile street tire/ wheel combo….not suitable for off road and definitely not sand…you need a tire with some sidewall so you can deflate a bit.

  2. Quick historical note:the first vehicles to cross the Darien Gap were Range Rovers in 1972, 7 years before the Geländewagen was introduced in 1979. This in no way dimishs the stupidity of the driver in the title photo. The G63 AMG is about as much use as a chocolate teapot for anything other signaling one is both wealthy and tasteless.

    1. As I recall, Mercedes made a vehicle called Geländewagen around 1939; Road & Track had an article about it. From what they said, it was popular in Switzerland by people working in the high mountains, because its 4 wheel steering gave it amazingly tight turning radius.

  3. As a friend of mine used to say: “Four wheel drive will get you stuck in better scenery.”

    He, however, lives in Colorado so the saying is more apropos.

    1. Fortunately, in Colorado, it is much more likely that there is a large tree nearby that you can use to winch yourself out of the mess, assuming you are properly prepared for serious 4×4 excursion.

    1. It helped me in sand, but I dropped down to 4 Lo before I got really stuck and lost traction, and did my best to remain unstuck afterwards. I had no interest in being that year’s horrible warning.

  4. Not sure if 4×4 would help with those rubber band tires. I like wide all terrain tires with a large sidewall for sand.

  5. There is some German couple who put like 3 million miles on their g wagon and visited like every country on earth doing it.

    I would simply caution, much like aodern land rover, I’d expect 99% of g wagons to be expensive SUVs that look capable but are easily out performed my a rusted out stock jeep or suburu forester from 1990-2000.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
