Mercedes reveals Maybach-badged G-Class

Mercedes-Maybach has lifted the lid on the latest iteration of the G-Class, which it calls the G 650 Landaulet.

With just 99 examples of the convertible, super-luxury SUV set to be built, the newcomer will be the most exclusive G-Class ever.

Power will come from a Mercedes-AMG V12 biturbo, which produces a massive 621bhp and a mountainous 1,000Nm of torque. Unsurprisingly, all this potency equates to an official combined economy figure of 16.6mpg and CO2 emissions of 397g/km.

As well as having a huge engine, the G 650 also has a huge body, measuring more than five metres in length and boasting a 3.4m wheelbase.

With portal axles, a low-range gearbox and differential locks, as well as 450mm of ground clearance, the manufacturer says the G 650 will offer an “unforgettable off-road experience”.

Inside, the driver and passenger sit under the solid roof, while the so-called ‘first-class’ rear seats are covered by the electrically retractable fabric roof. These rear seats can be fully reclined and offer a massage system and a calf rest, as well as two 10-inch, high-resolution displays.

The leather upholstery is diamond-stitched and offered in a choice of four different colour schemes, all of which are two-tone. The convertible roof, meanwhile, is offered in a choice of three different colours, and customers can choose from four different exterior colours.

Like the other G-Class variants, the G 650 will be built at Mercedes’ Magna Steyr plant in Austria, and though no price has been officially announced, it is expected to be considerably more expensive than the £135,905 Mercedes-AMG G 63.
