Mercedes-Benz G5 four wheel drive vehicle

The vehicle is very similar to the BMW 325 4x4 - not by accident. The German army had ordered all car manufacturers in 1933 to design a "Einheits-Pkw mit Allradantrieb" , a Uniform Passenger Car with 4WD. All manufacturers had to follow identical blueprints and technical layout.
