Not for $130,000. It's a poser. If we're talking about the Gelandawagon that is?

Best off roader .. Land Rover Discovery (LR 2 i think is the current name)

Best luxurious that can also whup *** off the road has to be a Range Rover

Escelade, Gelandawagon, Navigator, all the Lexus's i think is for people to flash some cash and drive to the grocery store. (here in the US at least)

I'm using Range Rover..In my opinion both Range Rover & Discovery are one of the best SUVs..Even the new M-class, Caynne, Tourage, X5, coul be listed in it..but they r not the best off roaders..The G-wagen, Unimog, Land Rover Defender, Hummer H1, etc are the best off roaders U can buy..All these r expensive because they are limited & unique..And thats why there is still demand for them..even after 26 years...

Speaking of Top Gear and SUVs...haha, if you want pure-offroading for £50k, i.e., literally the supercar of soil, check this, the Bowler Wildcat. Several engines (including Rover engines), 400Nm of torque @ 2600rpm (!!), around 300 horses and a 0-60 (mph) in 4.8 seconds! 100% street-legal...and also Paris-Dakar legal! Seats two, just as any standard supercar would. What more could one ask for?



The Range Rover wins hands-down for luxury, but this Bowler...I'd have it any day for its raw, indestructible off-roading capabilities.

I saw one of these on the news a few weeks ago. Some chap from Shropshire was going to undertake some sort of race across Africe (not Paris Dakar) in one of these. They showed a few clips of it being driven and the car looked great as it literally gobbled up rough terrain at high speed.

The web site for this super off roader is http://www.bowler-offroad.com

This one was on sale with a dealer two years back. Could still be. Call the Delhi dealers at the back of ACI. They will have the info, but beware of the price quoted.

The Mercedes-benz G class has been introduced in 1979 in Europe.The car was deigned in a era where computer has not his place in the developpement of a car , only designed by pen.The car will be produced till 2010 , many celebrities like owning that car such Jennifer Lopez , .....
This car has even won The famous rally of Paris Dakar.In the past the G class was powered by a 72 hp engine diesel.Each G class is assembled by hand in Austria.Why by hand ?because the G class even exists in military version , carrier too and AMG version.The G 55 AMG kompressor now out puts 500 hp and 700 Nm.Quick enough to rival a modern car such the Cayenne turbo.0 to 1000 m in 25 second only , 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 second according french car mag Sport Auto.Now handling is not modernThe craziest version of the G class is the G v12 Brabus powered by the 6.3 liters V12 engine based on the 600 series engine , that car 610 hp and more than 1000 Nm, priced in the USA 500 000 dollars. for more info log to BRABUS Homepage - english > tuning > G class

this car is rocking.masterpiece

It's funny, because this isn't completely a Mercedes product. It was co-designed and co-developed with Steyr Puch Magna in Austria, and it is Steyr Puch Magna that still makes them by hand. For those of you who don't know, Steyr also makes submachine guns, and invented the Hero Puch.
