Description

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' The Tegernsee Auction event, 27 July 2024.

  • Arguably the ultimate expression of the classic Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen design
  • One of just 99 examples built of the first SUV from the Mercedes-Maybach division
  • Finished in Designo Mystic White over a two-tone beige and black Napa leather interior with complementing beige folding soft-top over the rear compartment
  • Powered by a twin-turbocharged, 5,980-cc V-12 from Mercedes-AMG; factory rated at 621 horsepower to achieve a sub-six-second sprint to 100 km/h
  • Displays only 278 kilometres at the time of cataloguing

The recipe for the G 650 Landaulet was fantastically extraordinary. Mercedes-Benz took its enduringly popular, boxy Geländewagen with a convertible rear compartment, stretched the wheelbase by over half a metre, then had performance division AMG instal a colossal 6-litre, biturbo V-12 borrowed from its flagship S 65 super saloon. That unit, which exhales through a side-exit exhaust system, was mated to a seven-speed automatic gearbox capable of handling all 621 horsepower. The platform was then raised on portal axles from the G 500 4x4² and given three locking differentials before being handed over to the ultra-luxury-centric Maybach to have reclining, memory, massaging rear seats fitted from an S 600 limousine.

Delivered to its first owner on 26 March 2018, this example was specified in Designo Mystic White, while the exclusive Napa leather interior package was configured in two-tone beige and black to go with a beige soft-top. This car was further equipped with a Harman Kardon surround sound system, velour floor mats, the Mercedes-Maybach Chrome Package, AMG carbon trim details, plus 22-inch immersion-polished alloy wheels.

Registered on 30 August 2018, this G 650 Landaulet was subsequently acquired by the consigning owner in January 2021, later heading for a service that was carried out by Mercedes-Benz München in the December of that year. The odometer shows just 278 kilometres at the time of cataloguing and this car further benefits from its owner’s manual and other books. In August 2022, the car was treated with an application of paint-protection film around the front and lower sections of the vehicle by specialist XPEL. In July 2024, the G 650 was serviced by Mercedes-Benz Niederlassung München, with this and other work totalling €2,363.32 (invoice available to view on file). The sale of this example presents an opportunity to acquire what is arguably the ultimate expression of the iconic G-Wagen.
