8258 - Merc GLA45 in South Africa “They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Good intentions, my arse – it’s not even paved. I’m tiptoeing over melon-sized boulders, my face one constant, contorted wince as I wait for the inevitability of expensive German metal interfacing with ancient, unyielding rock. Behind me is 15 miles of woefully slow progress, to the right six inches of spare road… and then oblivion.” The GLA45’s mission is a simple one, head deep into the Swartberg mountains, to a remote town called Die Hel.
