Set to make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet is based on the long-wheelbase G-class, featuring the modified running gear and portal axle chassis borrowed from both the G63 6×6 and G500 4×4². It sports an electric fabric top above the rear portion of the vehicle, as well as a glass partition separating the two rows of seating. Speaking of which, the electronically adjustable individual rear seats are borrowed from the S-class, and can be fully reclined while leg rests extend from below, allowing passengers to stretch out and take full advantage of the aforementioned long wheelbase. Under the hood is a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12, generating 630 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. The power combines with portal axles, locking differentials and a transfer case with a low range to tackle just about any terrain. While pricing has yet to be announced, we do know that the 650 Landaulet will be limited to a production run of just 99 units.
