The Mercedes G 500 4×4² concept has its public debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show today. According to the company, the recipe for the G 500 4×4² was pretty simple. One axle was taken away from the famed G 63 AMG 6×6, it was then blended with a newly-developed variable chassis and a series-production G Class body.
