Mercedes Maybach G 650 Landaulet 2018
This SUV, derived from the G-Class, is part of the luxury division of Mercedes-Benz, called Maybach. It has a twelve cylinder engine and double turbocharger that gives 630 horsepower, similar to that of other models of this brand. It carries some of the technical solutions used in the Mercedes-Benz AMG G 63 6×6 and G 500 4×4². 99 units will be built and marketing will begin in the fall.
It measures 5.35 m in length and 2.24 m in height. The body is very high because it is separated much from the ground (the minimum free height to the ground is 450 mm) due to the axes that it uses, of portico type (the same ones that carry the Mercedes-Benz AMG G63 6×6 and the G 500 4×4²). To make access to the interior more comfortable, there are footbridges, that are deployed electrically. Like other Class G, it has three lockable and reductive differentials. The wheels are of dimensions 325/55 22.
The battle measures 3.43 meters, therefore, it is 58 centimeters longer than that of a long G Class. Thanks to this increase, there is more space in longitudinal sense for the occupants. The interior has four independent seats. The front ones are under a sheet metal roof and, the rear ones, under one of canvas that can be folded of completely automatic form .
The rear seats (picture) have electrical regulations, can be reclined completely, carry massage function and inflatable cushions. The upholstery has ruffles arranged in a diamond shape and can be chosen in several combinations of two tones. Between the two rear seats is a console consisting of a heated armrest, receptacles for placing beverage containers (which can be refrigerated or heated), controls to control the ventilation system and trays “aviation type” (such as those behind the Seat backs on aircraft) whose surface is intended for both writing and tablet use.
The rear seats are separated from the front by a panel in which there are two glove compartments, the controls to handle the roof and the interior lighting. On the front panel of these squares there are two handles and two 10-inch screens from which the entertainment system (picture) is controlled. In addition, it is possible to order a glass partition to separate the front seats from the rear seats. It is electrically operated and is made of a glass that can be transparent and can become opaque.
Currently, the range of Mercedes-Maybach vehicles (which Mercedes-Benz launched in 2015) is composed of the Mercedes-Maybach Class S, the Mercedes-Maybach Class S 650 Cabriolet and the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman limousine. In addition, there is a prototype whose name is Mercedes-Maybach Vision6.
