Limousine, convertible and off-roader combined created by Mercedes-Maybach to be sold for charity
One of just ninety-nine examples made, a brand new Mercedes-Maybach G650 V12 landaulet is to be auctioned in October.
Offered to benefit the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and given by Daimler AG, the 17.5-foot long, four-seater vehicle is intended as a “unique combination of luxurious chauffeur-driven limousine and off-roader” and features a glass partition to separate the driver and their passengers. It has an electric fabric top, electric side-steps, electrically adjustable rear seats with a massage function, leather tables large enough for laptops and two 10-inch high resolution media display units.
Of the 6-litre car, Gunnar Güthenke, manager of Mercedes-Benz G GmbH, commented:
“Today fascination with the G-Class is more prevalent than ever. It is a sought-after vehicle as it is forever reinventing itself – and yet remains true to its origins. It was and always will be unmistakably a G-Class, while at the same time offering plenty of opportunities for individual wishes. Our exclusive Landaulet model is the best example of this.”
Bonhams will sell the car with no reserve at their Zoute Sale in Knokke-Heist, Belgium on 6th October.
Update: Sold for £1.1 million ($1.4 million, €1.2 million or درهم5.3 million)
