Automotive brand, Mercedes-Benz, was created over a century ago, making it the the oldest automaker existing today.While Mercedes-Benz automobiles are known for having sleek exteriors, luxe appointments and an ultra-smooth ride, who knew that their longest produced vehicle was the utilitarian-framed, off-road G-Class?! The G-Wagen, short for Geländewagen, has been around for more than three decades, with celebs being spotted in them on the regular. In fact, Simply Rides once featured recording artist, model and DJ, Solange Knowles, looking cool and causal with her black Mercedes G55, and, more recently, rapper, reality star and Diplomat Records CEO,  Jim Jones was photographed with his sexy G-Wagen while filming a video. Plus, Kris Jenner, “momager” of the Kardashian-Jenner brood, just bought a blacked out G-Wagen to (get this) match her white one! We’re sure Mercedes-Benz can’t get enough of the free publicity–not that they need it! There’s obviously something about the rugged-but-luxurious G-Wagen that’s kept it in production for over 30 years. However, for the 2013 redesign Mercedes-Benz switched it up and now has a AMG model! #bananas(!)
