After the spectacular variants AMG G 6 6×6 and G 500 4×4², Mercedes has just presented a new masterpiece of automotive engineering. In collaboration with Maybach, a new icon in the off-road has born. The Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet.
It’s the fifth model of the Mercedes-Maybach sub-brand which stands for supreme luxury tradition, combined with high-tech. Surpassing all the standards, the G 650 reaches a length of 5345 millimeters, a height of 2235 millimeters and a wheelbase of 3428 millimeters.
This extrovert G Class thus represents a unique combination of luxurious chauffeur saloon and off-roader. While the driver and front passenger are accommodated under the closed roof, the rear passengers can revel in a maximum of comfort: at the press of a button, a large folding top opens electrically to offer a view of the blue sky.
The rear passengers enjoy the majestic open-air experience from their single seats. Electrically multi-adjustable, the individual seats can be set to a fully reclined position and they include an Energizing massage function.
To keep beverages cool or hot, during a very long time, a large business console with thermal cup holders between the individual seats is afforded to the rear passengers.
On demand, an electrically operated glass partition separates the rear compartment from the driver’s section. In addition, the glass can be changed from transparent to opaque at the press of a button.
To deliver an unforgettable off-road experience, like the AMG G 63 6×6 and G 500 4×4², the G 650 Landaulet uses the portal axles that provide ample ground clearance of 450 millimetres allowing the vehicle to get away with elegance from the most delicate situations.
To stand out from all the other 4×4 vehicles, the most powerful available engine has been chosen. It’s the Mercedes-AMG V12 biturbo which delivers a maximum output of 463 kW (630 hp) with a peak torque of 1000 Newton-metres.
Limited to 99 units, the Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet, will mbe produced by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria. This open-top four-seater is expected at the Geneva Motor Show for its world premiere.
