Mercedes-Maybach has introduced the first open-top off-roader G 650 Landaulet that meets the expectations of customers who demand highest standards of their vehicle. The vehicle is only limited to 99 units.
The passengers in the Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet benefit from extensive freedom of movement. The first-class rear seats from the S-Class significantly enhance the seating comfort and spaciousness: the electrically multi-adjustable individual seats can be conveniently set to a fully reclined position.
The active multi-contour seats with ENERGIZING massage function have inflatable air chambers to provide high seating comfort and excellent lateral support. Massage programs make for enhanced well-being – according to the principle of a relaxing hot-stone massage, including with heat.
The rear seating concept is augmented by a calf rest, which is freely adjustable in length and swivel range.
The other appointments of the G 650 Landaulet also leave nothing to be desired. To afford the rear passengers the optimum in comfort, there is a large business console with thermal cup holders between the individual seats. These allow beverages to be cooled or heated over a lengthy period of time.
The controls for opening or closing the glass partition are integrated behind the cup holders. Similarly to an aircraft seat, the centre console comes with two tables, which can be easily folded in or out with one hand. The table tops have leather inserts to provide a comfortable writing surface or to allow the use of tablets and notebooks.
Further forward is a “G cockpit” in the style of the driver’s instrument panel. The centre console houses the three distinctive, centrally placed pushbutton switches.
These switches are not used to operate the three differential locks, however: one switch is for the interior lighting, while the other two are used to open and close the soft top. The rear “G cockpit” also includes two glove compartments as well as grab handles typical of the G-Class.
The cross-member, which also holds the glass partition, accommodates two 25.4 cm (10-inch) high-resolution media displays of the Individual Entertainment System.
Like all other variants of the G-Class, the Mercedes-MaybachG 650 Landaulet, too, will be produced by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria. The open-top four-seater will celebrate its world premiere and sales release at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017. The market launch of the special series, which will be limited to 99 units, will start in the autumn.
The Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet is manufactured in left-hand-drive only and will therefore not be introduced to the local South African market.
