Maybach G 650 Landaulet
More recently, and a prelude to a swansong, the G 650 Landaulet represents the meeting of two extremes; a super-luxury marque’s take on an off-road vehicle. It brings back memories of the Maybach Landaulet soft-top from the last decade. Built on the platform of the 4x42 and lengthened by 578 millimetres to accommodate the opulence and luxuries that only a Maybach can deliver, the G 650 is the ultimate literal example of the term ‘freedom of movement’. Huge 22-inch wheels with 325/55 tyres on portal axles offer 450 mm of ground clearance, paired to its 630 PS and 1,000 Nm as well as the advanced 4x4 driveline allow it to traverse all sorts of terrain in maximum comfort. The top curtain opens up and folds down to provide a truly involving outdoor experience.
Connected to Stuttgart and Affalterbach, yet produced in Austria, the exclusive Maybach G 650 is limited to just 99 units.
Whichever iteration is chosen, the G-Class stands out as a timeless classic, still coveted by many enthusiasts with petrol running through their veins. It remains an example of engineering excellence that surpasses all boundaries of acceptance.
