At the world première of the new G-Class from model series 463 (combined fuel consumption: 13.1–9.6 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions: 299–252 g/km*) on 14 January 2018 at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, Mercedes-Benz presented the “Stronger Than Time” installation: a 280 GE from model series 460 dating back to 1979 encased in synthetic resin. The fascinating installation was reminiscent of fossilised insects encased in amber (© 2018: Daimler AG, photo by Deniz Saylan).
