Official: Maybachs of first off roader

Stuttgart, February 13, 2017

Now it's official: at the Geneva car show 2017 (March 9-19) 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, Twin-Turbo V12 and well over 600 HP. Please grab now shortly after air.

60 centimeters more wheelbase

Now you may ask: the world was really waiting for a strictly limited, zwölfzylindrige G-class with electric soft top? Probably not the whole world, but a small part of it can probably no longer expect. Mercedes says: "With the new Mercedes Maybach G 650 Landaulet proves the off-road icon that the definition of unique luxury can be further increased". You can say that, at a length of 5.35 metres, a height of 2.24 metres and one (to right 60 cm!) on 3.43 meters extended wheelbase. Thus, the most craziest chauffeurs-"Sedan" in the world is the G 650 Landaulet.

Tricky blade

Driver and passenger sit under a closed roof. The Fund guests sit on two individual seats, but have the advantage that they can command an electric fabric hood on push of a button. How long it takes to open and close, is not known, but who cares already once the huge Open-Air lounge is opened? Quickly the next button pressed and already a disc that separates the Fund from the driver compartment rises. Another keystroke and said disk changes from transparent to opaque.

Inside insanity

You can already see: In the Mercedes Maybach G 650 Landaulet you're probably better back. But not only because of above flair and wacky wheels. The seats come from the S-class, run in lying position, offer a Wade pad and massage also admirably. There is also a so-called business console with Thermo Cup holders between the chairs. G 650 so according to gusto serves your drink cold or warm. Also there: Two fold-out tables, which qualify as "comfortable pad" with leather inserts. Who looks beyond his outstretched legs, detects a kind of second G-class cockpit including two 10-inch displays, and why whatever two another glove compartments.

630-HP V12

If the average ruler together with Mrs to the off-road excursion breaks up, they both have it so apparently quite comfortable. However at any time, the driver can contribute to the change in this State, because the Maybach-G 630 HP has about the same 6.0 liter bi turbo, which provides G 65 for so much astonishment in the AMG and thanks to 1,000 nm. The Landaulet Maybach considers the performance still under lock and key, but in a "normal" G 65 (that sounds really strange, or?) of the 0-100 km/h Sprint takes about five seconds. Quickly enough, one would think. The G 650 Landaulet is gone quickly not only on slippery roads. Thanks to the of AMG G63 6 x 6 and G 500 4 x 4² known Portal axles, a scant half meter Bodenfreihet and three differential locks is the pomp off-roader in wirrsten terrain steep.

Around 500,000 euros

From the outside you can see the G 650 next to the fabric hood and wide carbon mudguards, chrome Grill, 22-inch polished his sheer Monumentality with 325/55 tyres, a spare wheel on the trunk lid, and electrically retractable entry helps, by the way. By the way, there will be only 99 copies of this terrain Triclinium. The price is not known, but it is assumed that he will be very, very high. With around 500,000 euros is probably to be expected. But for a "new master piece of automotive art" Yes almost peanuts. Market launch for the Mercedes Maybach G 650 Landaulet is in the autumn 2017.(sw)
