If you are looking for an exclusive SUV, your search is over. Mercedes-Maybach is planning a limited run of convertible G wagons based on the 4x4². To be formally unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show, the official name will be G650 Landaulet. The first 4WD to bear the Maybach name, it features a convertible soft top for the rear passengers. To be worthy of such an exclusive name, it borrows the finest elements of the S class to make a very luxurious interior. Driver and front passenger can be silenced by invoking a glass partition, and it has the same electro-chromatic abilities as the Magic Sky Roof found on the SL.
Rear passengers are also treated to dual 10" screens in the partition wall and massaging seats from the S class. The wheelbase needed a stretch of 22" in order to accommodate all the pleasantries, and nothing was left out. The rear cup holders are heated and cooled for the ultimate in top-down motoring, and the seats have all the massaging features we have come to love. Power comes from the venerable twin turbo V12, offering 630 hp to three locking differentials. Hopefully, Jay-Z is on the waiting list because only 99 examples will be produced. No word of US availability was mentioned, but we will have updates after the unveiling. Stay with us for all your Mercedes news.
