Although South African striker Lars Veldwijk might not get a look in the national team set up anymore, his breathtaking Mercedes Benz G-Class is an absolute eye-catcher!

The story

The G-Wagon is not the rarest car you'll find, although it is part of an exceptional class of vehicles that are renowned by not only the wealthy, but the dreamers as well.

The Korean-based star has gone from owning a white Jeep Wrangler to now driving an astonishing Mercedes G63.

Can't go wrong with a Benz

This particular model is famed for its versatility and utility across different terrains. Although it does not seem out of place in off-road environments, it's in the streets and in urban spaces where it's notorious for its classy design and luxuriousness - thus creating a perfect balance with its all-terrain capabilities.

The German automaker has remained true to its traditional squared exterior which makes it unique, something that isn't as constant when it comes to other models from Mercedes.

More about the talisman

It turns out that the Dutch-born striker is buddies with Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech. The two have been spotted together on several occasions, including at an event where they drove some desert cars.

On the field, his side Suwon FC have had an underwhelming campaign so far as they lie fourth from the bottom of the K League, with 11 points from as many matches, according to Transfermarkt.
