Months ago Drake purchased one of just 99 Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulets produced. Promised to provide customers with open-air luxury both on- and off-road, the G 650 truly is next-level inside and out.
After Drake got his, we had the opportunity to get our hands on the incredible G 650 Landaulet. The G 650 is essentially a convertible version of the celebrated G-Wagen and the first off-roader from the Mercedes-Maybach sub-brand.
The G 650 extends 22.75 inches longer than the G-Wagen, while boasting 17.7 inches of clearance for off-roading capabilities. The car has more than enough space for four passengers, as the back houses calf leather captain’s seats with heated massagers. With just one press of a button, those in the rear can enjoy an open-air breeze thanks to the large foldable top.
Also, if you’re looking for a little privacy — or to separate yourself from screaming children — you can utilize the electrically operated glass partition, which can be changed from transparent to opaque with the touch of a button. In addition to the massage-assisted rear seats, the G 650 includes a sizable business console with thermal cup holders between the two back seats. These allow you to conveniently cool and/or heat your beverages.
Mercedes-Maybach offers the G 650’s two-tone interior in four trim colors, with diamond stitching. Customers can then choose between three matching colors for the fabric top and four designo paint finishes.
To further detail the ride, the G 650’s 22-inch 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels are accented with exclusive “LANDAULET” lettering on the rim flanges. For added convenience, you can then electrically extend the entry aids below for easier access.
Under the hood of the G 650 Landaulet you will find an AMG twin-turbo V12 engine that cranks out 630 horsepower. Mercedes insists this is the most powerful available engine.
