Much awaited version of the G Class. The new Mercedes-Maybach G65 4x4 Landaulet is powered by an AMG 629.6 hp twin turbocharged 6.0 litre V12 petrol engine.

Here are the first photos of the much awaited Mercedes-Maybach G650 4×4 Landaulet. This new variant of the classic G Class with body style akin to a limousine, and passenger section covered by a convertible top, will be launched in Europe first.
