The 1979 W460 G-WAGEN ‘civilian’ model went on sale in September 1979 with three engine choices and five body variants! G-Wagen gained its global fame in 1980 when Mercedes-Benz built a ‘Popemobile’ based on the 230 G cabriolet during Pope John Paul II's first visit to Germany. The G-class was first suggested by the shah of Iran and developed as a military vehicle later used by the Argentine Army beginning in 1981 with the ‘military’ model 461.
