The brand Maybach means the ultimate in terms of luxury. And when your vehicle carries that brand name, you ought to be careful on where all you can take it. Is that right? Not really!

The Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet is the third offering based on the G-wagon after the AMG GĀ 63Ā 6×6 and GĀ 500Ā 4×42. Powering this luxury beast of a vehicle is theĀ Mercedes-AMG V12 biturbo motor that puts out 630PS and 1,000Nm. But this one is not only about performance as the G 650 Landaulet comes equipped with thermal cupholders, table tops with leather inserts for rear occupants and a 10āinch infotainment system.
