G-Class Production Facility in Graz, Austria

I am a big fan of the G-Class cars so it exciting to find an enthusiast that has been to the factory in Graz, Austria.   Luckily they didnt have a problem with him photographing the production line.  If anyone is curious to see pictures of the production facility in Graz, Austria where they hand build the G-Glass , here are some great photos.   Can you believe over 3 miles of wiring is used on each car!  These cars are all  hand built since 1979.  You dont find the build quality that you do in these handmade cars anymore.  The doors make a great sound when closing which gives it a vault like feeling.    As a testament to their quality, it is difficult to find a USA version of the 2002 G-Class under $20,000 right now even with high mileage (150,000 miles plus.)   People are discovered what great cars they are and have helped their resale value.   While most cars continue to depreciate to a fraction of their original costs, the G Class is able to keep proving to the world how good they really are.
