The Mercedes Benz M-Class were the vehicles the InGen gatherers used during their expedition to Isla Sorna along with two modified trailers in a Steven Spielberg’s 1997 sci-fi adventure film “The Lost World: Jurassic Park”. Their purpose was to be able to drive and navigate throughout the island for the gatherers purpose of transporting equipment such as cameras and items for studying dinosaurs. Both of the vehicles were Pre-production 1997 Mercedes ML 320s W163.

Only two variants of the 1997 Mercedes-Benz ML 320 Pre-Production were in operation on Isla Sorna Incident, by the Ingen gatherers. The following are not official names, but based on their purposes. There are the M-Class Convertible and the M-Class Observatory. Plus one car, the Laboratory, was left behind, because of the lack of driver.

Each car featured 4-wheel drive, front bull bars, a front tow cable, a winch, fog lights, rear tail light guards, custom step bars, leather seats, and a camouflage paint. Each variant included various other small changes that added to each vehicle’s purpose.

The Convertible as driven by Eddie was damaged by two T-Rex’s and eventually went over the side of the cliff along with the Fleetwood RV Mobile Lab. The Observatory was rolled off the cliff by a T-Rex prior to the cliff scene above. The Laboratory was unharmed and still exists at the garage where all the equipment for the InGen gatherers were manufactured and customized.
