This Mercedes-Maybach’s G650 Landaulet Is Available Only for 99 People!
Curious why this Mercedes-Maybach’s G650 Landaulet is available only for 99 people? Find out more details about that!
The 2017 Mercedes-Maybach’s G650 Landaulet has been launched ahead of its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show and is already turning heads around.
This G-Wagen has followed the dramatic debut of its brother the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet last fall and is the first off-roader released by the sub-brand.
But there is a catch! Only 99 G65- Landaulets will be built and the company expects that the cars will find new owners by the fall.
Why? Because under the hood this Maybach G-Wagen gets a Mercedes-AMG V12 twin-turbo engine that delivers 621hp and 738lb-ft of torque.
“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.
“With the fifth model after the S Class Saloon, Pullman and Cabriolet as well as the Mercedes-Maybach Vision 6 show car, we are underlining the importance of the Mercedes-Maybach sub-brand for the Mercedes brand family.”
The exterior of this lavish car got a lot of chrome details, including the radiator grille and front and read underside guards.
The wheel-arch flares are tastefully coated in carbon fiber and the spare wheel is mounted around back on the right side of the car.
The four-seater automobile has half of the rear end chopped off, just for the third brake light to hover above the spare tire.
Mercedes states that the wheelbase is 135 inches long, while the overall length is 210.4 inches and height is 88 inches.
The all-terrain vehicle rolls on 22-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels and features electric fabric top and portal axles similar to the ones found on the AMG G63 6×6 and G500 4×4².
Mercedes says the portal axles provide a ground clearance of nearly 18 inches. The Landaulet also features 100-percent differential locks, which can be engaged while moving.
On the inside both the driver and front passenger get a hardtop while rear passengers can get rid of it at the push of a button.
This car also features an electric glass (that can be easily changed from transparent to opaque) partition that separates the front and rear sections of the vehicle, similar to those included in a limousine.
“Thanks to the extended-by-22.75-inches wheelbase, the rear seats can be set to a fully reclined position.”
“Massaging seats all around get two-tone design upholstery with diamond stitching and are available in four trim colors. There are three matching colors for the fabric top, and four design paint options.”
Would want to have one? But consider that if this car is similar to the other two in the Maybach line, it would easily be priced over $300,000.
