So the Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet


Now it is official: At the Geneva Autosalon 2017 (9th to 19th March) we are actually witnessing a Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet. Yes, you have read correctly: A luxury G-Class convertible, half Maybach, half AMG, with portal axles, Biturbo-V12 and well over 600 HP. Please snap right now.

60 centimeters more wheelbase
Now you may wonder: Has the world really been waiting for a strictly limited, twelve-cylinder G-Class with electric soft top? Probably not the whole world, but a small part of it certainly can not expect more. Mercedes says: "With the new Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet, the off-road icon proves that the definition of unique luxury can be further enhanced." This can be said to be true, with a length of 5.35 meters, a height of 2.24 meters and a wheelbase (by more than 60 centimeters!) On 3.43 meters extended. This makes the G 650 Landaulet the probably craziest chauffeur "sedan" in the world.

Tricky cut-off
driver and passenger sit under a closed roof. The rear seats also occupy two single seats, but they have the great advantage that they can command an electric soft top at the push of a button. How long it takes to open and close is not surpassed, but who is disturbing as soon as the huge open-air lounge is opened? The next button is pressed and a disc separates the rear of the driver compartment. Another key press and said disk change from transparent to opaque.

Also inside madness
You already see: In the Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet you probably prefer to sit behind. But not only because of top-not-flair and crazy cut-off wheels. The seats come from the S-Class, can be driven into lying position, offer a calf support and massages also excellently. There is a so-called business console with thermo cups between the chairs. The G 650 serves your drink cold or warm depending on your taste. There are also two fold-out tables which, thanks to leather inserts, qualify as a "comfortable writing pad". Who looks out over his outstretched legs, recognizes a kind of second G-Class cockpit, including two ten-inch displays and - for whatever reason - two additional glove compartments.

When the average ruler with her wife breaks up for the off-road trip, the two have apparently quite comfortable. The Maybach-G has the same 6.0-liter biturbo, which is also so astonishing in the AMG G 65 - 630 hp and 1,000 newton meters. Maybach still holds the groundwork for the Landaulet, but the 0-100 km / h sprint takes about five seconds in a "normal" G 65 (which sounds really strange, does not it?). Fast enough, you should mean. The G 650 Landaulet is not only on smooth roads fast away. Thanks to the portal axles known from AMG G63 6x6 and G 500 4x4², a narrow half meter of ground clearance and three differential locks, the punk off-roader is also steep in the troubled terrain.

Around the 500,000 euros
From the outside you can see the G 650 - next to the soft top and its sheer monumentality - by the way, very wide carbon mudguards, the chrome grille, polished 22-inch tires with 325/55 tires, a spare tire at the trunk lid and electrical Retractable entry aids. Only 99 copies of this site will be available. The price is not known, but it is assumed that it will be very very high. With around 500,000 euros is to be expected. But for a "new masterpiece of automotive engineering", this is almost peanuts. Market launch for the Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet is in autumn 2017.
