Today, Mercedes unveiled its Maybach G650 Landaulet to the public. This car unit is said to be the most luxurious G-Class ever made by the German automaker. The 2017 Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet has been revealed ahead of its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show bow and after the leaked viral video last week. “With the Mercedes-Maybach G-Class Landaulet, we are now extending the Mercedes-Maybach portfolio to include the world’s most iconic and prestigious off-roader,” Dr. Jens Thiemer, Mercedes-Benz marketing head said in a statement.
Limited Units Of Mercedes Maybach G650 Landaulet Will Come In Fall
As reported by Auto Mobile Mag, since 2015, a total of 15,000 Mercedes Maybach have been made. And now, a limited run of 99 Maybach G650 Landaulets units will be built by Mercedes and are expected to reach buyers by the fall. Additional to that, the Maybach G-Wagen gets a Mercedes-AMG V-12 twin-turbo engine with the 630 horsepower that delivers about 738 lb-ft of torque.
It was confirmed that Mercedes will build just 99 Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulets and will sell them for a price that are not yet revealed. But since it is said to feature great specs and designs, certainly, an extraordinary cost will follow. If you are the 100th most ridiculous person in Dubai to hope for this Mercedes car, sorry but better luck next time. Only 99 lucky buyers will be entertained.
Features Of The Mercedes Maybach G650 Landaulet
As Wired reported, when Mercedes started building the G-Wagen back in 1970, the SUV was a utilitarian thing, a car which is ideal for military operators who actually needed to drive where paved roads don’t lead. Over the past 40 years, the vehicle has clung to the angular, boxy, working-class look—but a peek inside reveals this car has gone soft. The outside of the G650 gets plenty of chrome, which includes the radiator grille as well as the front and rear underside guards.
The wheel-arch flares are tastefully treated with carbon fiber and the spare wheel is mounted at the back on the right side of the four-seater car. Since Mercedes believes that privacy is everything, a glass partition can seal the driver off from the passengers at the back, flipping from transparent to opaque at the push of a button. And as a driver, being seen by the other is more important, the canvas soft top covering the backseat opens with the whir of a motor and not the pull of an arm.
