2018 Mercedes Maybach G650 Landaulet, Convertible SUV with Mean Looks. Mercedes Maybach G650 Landaulet 2018 photo finally has been leaked. Mercedes itself, through their Facebook page, reveal how this new car looks like. This series will be announced and officially introduced to public next month at 2017 Geneva Auto Show. However, we get the privilege to know more about the appearance for G650 little bit faster, which is okay.
Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet Specifications
First of all, this is SUV car. In fact, this car is the first SUV from this series. And, by looking at its design, this car is definitely not using GLS as its based design concept. It’s more to G-Class model, which is also known as the legendary series.
Although it said that this will be the first SUV of this series, however, we can assume that Landaulet seems like a sedan car type. Furthermore, this car also has the unique feature, as you can see on its roof. You can fold the roof and make an open area above the passenger area.
But, even though it can be folded, it doesn’t mean that this car will be changed and become like convertible type car. It is still SUV. Moreover, this unique feature is also the reason why we said before that this is more like G-Class because this type also has the similar feature.
Unfortunately, there is no information about the specs. But, we can predict by looking at the other car with similar class. First of all, this car uses the G500 4×4² chassis. With this chassis, we can see that it has higher ground clearance. And, by looking at the badging, we can expect hat V12 engine will be installed under the hood.

If it’s true, this car will also have 630 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque. However, we can’t just say that this is what you will get in G650. As you can see on Mercedes AMG G65 that also used V12, the power that it is produced, is quite different than that prediction. The AMG G65 can only produce 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque.
Other than the specification on the engine department, we can see other parts that Mercedes offered through this car. For example, there will be carbon fiber fenders, trim that use the G500 4×4², also brake rotors and calipers.

As mentioned before, the release date will be on March 7th, at Geneva Auto Show. This series also said to be series to commemorate the last of the W436 platform, before Mercedes stops the production of that platform. And, G650 probably will become one of special or limited series from Mercedes.
The main reason is some media said that Mercedes will be only produced 99 unit of this car. We don’t know how accurate this news is. But, if this is true, we can expect one of the best quality, especially from the specification aspect.
As one of G-Class, we also can expect that this car will be priced more or less at $300K. This will include this car into one of premium car class from Mercedes. Now, we just need a few more weeks for the official release of Mercedes Maybach G650 Landaulet.
