Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet Is The Ultimate Safari Machine

Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet

Looking like the most luxurious way you could have ever imagined experiencing a safari, this stunning Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet is ready to take over your dreams. But before you get really excited about it, you should that Mercedes officials have confirmed that this 4×4 marvel won’t be available in the United States.

It seems the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 or the G500 4×4² weren’t extravagant enough for some people, which is why we’re now looking at this outrageous vehicle. Mercedes totally broke the boundaries with this one, with a ravishing twin-turbocharged V12 hiding under its hood, good for about 630 ponies and 738 lb-ft of torque.

This impressive powerplant sends its power to a four-wheel-drive system with front, center, and rear differential locks, allowing for steady driving and improved ground clearance. You have probably noticed the soft-top by now, ideal for observing wildlife on private safaris, but there’s more to this project than that.

The cabin allows rear passengers to experience luxury and comfort, even while the vehicle travels on the most difficult surfaces. The soft top can be electrically raised or lowered, as can a glass partition to the driver’s compartment. The two individual rear seats can be fully reclined, and leg rests deploy from below, taking full advantage of the truck’s long wheelbase.

The passengers may also benefit from folding tables, 10″ LCD displays, as well as heated, cooled, and illuminated cup holders. Please note that only 99 of these G650s Landaulet will ever be built, with the model set to be on display for the first time at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Starting this fall, you could get your hands on one of these, although we don’t know how much that would cost you, just yet.
