The iconic Jeep silhouette is among the most recognized automotive designs in the world. Made immortalised by the images of its pre- and post-war history, the brand has earned a reputation of being a rugged machine that can withstand anything. The MB, 75 years ago was the first ever model that ventured into to the battle field.
