G-Class History
On display at the entrance to Cobo Hall, the venue of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, sits an original G-Class from the first production year in 1979, dramatically encased in a cube of amber synthetic resin. As if the G-Class is suspended in space and time, the 1979 Mercedes-Benz 280 GE is entombed in a solid block of more than 44 tons of resin, which was created over a 90-day period as the block increased by mere centimeters each day.
