Heres a G-Wagon that used to be parked at the Ambassador's. Yes and thats the Lorinser E Class next to it.

Ur right Gaurav. The G looks like a modded Trax or a Sumo. We spoke to the official mechanic who maintains the G and at first he thought that we didnt know it was a Merc. He went on to tell us that it was a Sumo and he has modified it into a Mercedes. At first we thought chal lets believe what he's saying. Then after he finished we told him that we know it wasnt a Sumo or a Trax and that it was a Mercedes G Wagon. Mercedes' only true off-roader. He was quite taken aback that we recognised it as a Mercedes. He went on to say that everybody who has seen it had enquired about who had modded this Sumo into a Merc. Anyways the G was quite well maintained.

ur right aadix. the tempo traveller/trax still uses the Merc-derived OM616 Diesel engine.

Now thats a sight for sore eyes. A true off-roader! I saw another white one on Marine drive the other night but it was poorly maintained and belonged to some hotel (logos all over)

Hey GTO, that could be the "Hotel Ambassador" G Wagen then.

True. Just showed the pics to my sis, she thought it was a Sumo until she saw the logo. The moment she knew it was a Merc, she went "Yuck, that's a Merc???".
