This week, a leaked video of the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet, which is basically a G-Wagen with a removable soft top, hit the internet. This year marks the end of the G-Wagen as you know it and Mercedes is giving it a King’s farewell with this the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet. It is truly a new twist on an old classic. Sadly, for Mercedes-Benz, a rogue journalist released a video of the SUV a month before the car manufacturer intended to make an official announcement.
Here are some specs via Motor Trend:
The SUV, which gets Maybach badging and a Landaulet body style, appears to ride on the G500 4×4²’ chassis. The badging reveals the SUV features a twin-turbocharged V-12, which, according to the Instagram post, produces around 630 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque. That information should still be taken with a grain of salt, however. The 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 in the Mercedes-AMG G65 makes 621 hp and 738 lb-ft.
