This is a G-Class like never before: With the G650 Landaulet, Mercedes-Maybach presents a new masterpiece of automotive engineering.
After the Mercedes-Maybach S‑Class and S650 Cabriolet, the open-top G‑Class is the first off-roader from Daimler’s ultra-upmarket sub-brand. The exceptional G650 Landaulet follows the equally spectacular variants AMG G63 6×6 and G500 4×42.
With its superlative V12 engine, portal axles, electric fabric top and exclusive equipment specification in the rear compartment, this very special all-terrain vehicle, which is limited to 99 units, meets the expectations of customers who demand the very highest standards of their vehicle. The G650 Landaulet is surely the most exclusive form of stylish open-top motoring.
The history of the cult classic G-Class, which has been in production since 1979, is rich in superlatives and landmarks. With the new Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet, the off-road icon demonstrates that the definition of unique luxury can always be taken to a new level. .
With a length of 5345mm, a wheelbase of 3428mm, a height of 2235mm, almost half a metre of ground clearance, plus ample space and comfort for four passengers, the G650 Landaulet surpasses all standards. This extrovert G‑Class thus represents a unique combination of luxurious chauffeur saloon and off-roader.
While the driver and front passenger are accommodated under the closed roof, the rear passengers can revel in a maximum of comfort – at the press of a button, a large folding top opens electrically to offer a view of the blue sky. The rear passengers enjoy the majestic open-air experience from their single seats. On demand, an electrically operated glass partition separates the rear compartment from the driver’s section. In addition, the glass can be changed from transparent to opaque at the press of a button.
Exclusive “LANDAULET” lettering is worked into the rim flanges of the ceramically polished, 22‑inch five‑twin-spoke alloy wheels. Electrically extending entry aids make for easier access to the vehicle. Other exclusive exterior design features include front and rear underride guards, large wheel-arch flares in genuine carbon fibre as well as, mounted on the right at the rear, a spare wheel with integral holder for the third brake light.
As is customary with the off-road icon, the “G” is always breaking new ground – unlike previous Landaulets, which were based on prestigious saloons, the G650 Landaulet also has what it takes to deliver an unforgettable off-road experience.
Familiar from the AMG G63 6×6 and G500 4×42, the portal axles provide ample ground clearance of 450mm, allowing the open-top all-terrain vehicle to overcome even extreme obstacles in masterly fashion.
Tyres of size 325/55 R22 form the ideal basis for perfect handling both on- and off-road. Of course, the latest “G” also features the typical 100‑percent differential locks, which can be engaged while on the move, as well as the low off-road ratio of the transfer case. The combination of this 4WD technology, unique in the off-road segment, makes the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet stand out from all other 4×4 vehicles.
High drive comfort comes courtesy of the most powerful available engine, the Mercedes-AMG biturbo V12, which delivers a maximum output of 630bhp with a peak torque of 1000Nm.
