MERCEDES-AMG has released a teaser pic of its Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet ahead of next month’s Geneva Motor Show. A quick 60-second video of the luxurious drop-top has also found its way onto the net.
The smartphone footage provides a 360-degree view of the G650 in all of its undisguised glory. A notable design cue of the ‘convertible’ is the rear fabric roof that is said to electrically fold behind the rear seats.
Of the limited details released so far, the G650 will utilise Merc-AMG’s 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 engine that’s capable of producing a whopping 463kW and 1000Nm. The monster is also said to have portal axles, a wheelbase of 3428mm, carbonfibre wheel arches and Pirelli Scorpion ATR tyres.
Sources differ, but it’s believed only 99 or 100 units will be built, and these are expected to be snapped up by the uber wealthy – pricing is yet to be announced, but expect a price tag of at least US$300,000.
All will be revealed at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, which runs from March 9-19. Stay tuned to www.4x4australia.com.au for complete coverage of the event!
