Earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Maybach presented what is almost certainly the most ostentatious and extravagant Class G of all time, with permission of the Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6x6 of the year 2013 We are talking about the Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet.
When the German mark showed it at the Swiss event, the 99 units to be produced of the model were already sold, except for one that was kept by Daimler to auction it later for a good cause.
And so it has been. The specialist Bonhams just sold it for 1.2 million euros to a private buyer from Belgium, who has not cared to pay almost double the 630,000 euros before taxes that originally cost the model, since the sum will go to stop at the 'Laureus sport for good' foundation of which Daimler is a partner
V12 engine and luxury at large
If such figures have made you dizzy to the point of not remembering what is special about this Class G, we want to remind you that it measures 5.34 meters long, takes the gantry axes of the G500 4x4² we tried long ago, inherits the comfortable rear seats of a Class S, equips wheels of 22 inches, enjoys a free height to the ground of 45 centimeters and also hides a 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine of 630 hp and 1,000 Nm of maximum torque.
It is true that it can not pass from 96 km / h if it is uncapped, and does not exceed 180 km / h in any case, but surely the wealthy owners of one of these beasts will travel to all rags in the back of the Landaulet, which in addition to leather upholstery, plane tables or a large space thanks to a battle 58 centimeters higher than that of a Class G five doors, they will also enjoy heated and refrigerated portabebidas or a multimedia system with tablets.
