2014 | Mercedes-Benz – 35 years G-Class

Congratulations! Otto‘s homecoming.


In the setting of the 35-year anniversary of the G-Class the celebratory handover of Gunter Holthorf’s G-Class to the Mercedes-Benz museum took place. The location was an adjacent branch office of Mercedes-Benz. The ceremonial act was represented by Dr. Dieter Zetsche.

250 Guests of the G-Class clubs were invited. In 26 years Mr. Holthorf visited 215 countries and put 900.000 km on his G-Class vehicle, “Otto”. After an emotional entry of “Otto” an impressive presentation of the vehicle took place.

The staging of the vehicle handover was bookended by a first-class entertainment program. A top-quality dinner jazz band, alongside a speedpainter and the lecture Mr. Holthorf gave were the highlights of the celebration.
