This is the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet, the ultimate expression of the G-Class and the very same car the company teased early this morning.
Apparently Mercedes wanted to surprise everyone with the Maybach-prepped G650 Landaulet in Geneva but clearly someone couldn’t keep a secret. The new Mercedes-Maybach G650 brings back the Landaulet moniker which is reserved for ultra-luxury vehicles with soft tops over the rear passengers’ heads.
The G650 Landaulet is based on the lifted chassis of the G500 4x4 Squared but instead of the biturbo V8 found there, it uses the company’s V12 engine, reportedly tuned for 630hp. The other difference is that the wheelbase is now extended, thus creating more room for the privileged passengers at the rear.
