The Mercedes-Maybach G-Class 650, which was unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show, is spinning heads for its elegant design and price tag.
The history of the G-Class is rich in superlatives and landmarks. With the new Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet, the off-road classic demonstrates that the definition of unique luxury can always be taken to a new level. Not only that: it is forever reinventing itself and providing yet more evidence of the potential that still resides in this classic all-terrain vehicle today, which has been in production since 1979.
The brand is no outsider to pushing limits, particularly when it comes to automotive design and extravagance. And pushing boundaries is precisely what the German auto manufacturer did at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show with the unveiling of their G-Class 650.
Not only is this transport the essence of luxury and prestige, but it’s also an SUV that can manage some of the most difficult regions on the planet. Of course, all of this comes at a steep cost: making the G-Class 650 the world’s most expensive SUV.
Mercedes-Benz is not only zeroing in on a uber-wealthy user, but they’re doing so with a style of car that’s done particularly great over the past few years: SUVs. cheap gas prices, rising employment, and low interest price mean a record amount of new cars and trucks were sold in 2016.
The all-new G-Class 650 will feature a V12 motor, a retractable fabric roof, and an electronically flexible glass partition (that can dim for more privacy). Back seat passengers can also experience the richness of retractable footrests and folding desks.
To guarantee highest comfort and security, the SUV stands over one-and-a-half feet above the soil, making rugged conditions—such as huge stones and tiny rivers—less of a hazard.
