2011 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Edition Select: details, photos and specs

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 28, 2011

If the G-Class BA3 Final Edition was the last special edition of the well-known German SUV based on the short-wheelbase version, the G-Class Edition Select model is based on the long-wheelbase version and it is the last version we’ll see before the coming of an updated or a new model. The new edition comes with a two-tone paintwork but at no extra cost there is a choice of designo mystic white, palladium silver metallic, thulite red metallic and obsidian black metallic.

Regarding the design, the car features bumpers, AMG side flaps and exterior mirrors painted in obsidian black metallic, new running boards, as well as the spare wheel cover with a 3D Mercedes-Benz star in stainless steel. The exterior design is completed by the 18-inch 5-twin-spoke design, an underguard and an AMG sports exhaust system. Inside, the car features two-tone upholstery in porcelain/black designo leather.

The Chrome package is rounded off by a chrome luggage compartment sill protector with "Mercedes-Benz" lettering and a radiator grille with chrome inserts. Moreover, for an extra €6735.40 (incl. 19% VAT).

We find stainless steel door sill panels illuminated in white, crash-responsive NECK-PRO luxury head restraints and a Harman Kardon Logic7 surround sound system. Other highlights of the interior include designo wood trim in black piano lacquer, as well as a steering wheel and selector lever in a leather/piano lacquer combination with contrasting topstitching.

Mercedes-Benz G-Class Edition Select

Mercedes-Benz has conceived the special "Edition Select" model with two-tone paintwork exclusively for the long-wheelbase G500 Station Wagon. At no extra cost, there is a choice of designo mystic white, palladium silver metallic, thulite red metallic and obsidian black metallic. The bumpers, AMG side flaps and exterior mirrors are always painted in obsidian black metallic. Further contrasts are provided by running boards and the spare wheel cover with a 3D Mercedes-Benz star in stainless steel. Other eye-catching features include black-painted 18-inch light-alloy wheels in a 5-twin-spoke design with size 265/60 R 18 tyres, carbon-fibre look inserts in the protective strips, an underguard and an AMG sports exhaust system.

In the interior the stylish atmosphere is characterised by high-grade two-tone upholstery in porcelain/black designo leather. Single-tone black designo leather is available as an alternative. Ambient lighting and chrome trim in the area of the selector lever, the seat adjustment controls and the loudspeakers in the front doors underline the luxurious standard. The Chrome package is rounded off by a chrome luggage compartment sill protector with "Mercedes-Benz" lettering and a radiator grille with chrome inserts.

The dashboard, armrest, door handles and parking brake lever are lined in black leather, with contrasting topstitching is some areas. The inner door panels are lined with gathered leather, and black designo velour floor mats with porcelain edging lend a cosy touch to the footwells. Highlights in the interior also include designo wood trim in black piano lacquer. The steering wheel and selector lever are in a leather/piano lacquer combination with contrasting topstitching.

The already extensive standard equipment is supplemented with stainless steel door sill panels illuminated in white and bearing the lettering "Mercedes-Benz", as well as crash-responsive NECK-PRO luxury head restraints. The Harman Kardon Logic7® surround sound system is among the finest available. It provides an exquisite listening experience in the off-roader, thanks to a 10-channel DSP amplifier with a total output of 450 watts and twelve high-performance loudspeakers.

The high-grade additional features of the special "Edition Select" model, whose status is marked by a corresponding logo on the cover of the stowage compartment in the dashboard console, are priced at € 6735.40 (incl. 19% VAT).
