The Last Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet Was Sold for $1.4M at an Auction
Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet was launched in March this year at Geneva Motor Show. During that time, it was revealed that ninety-eight of the ninety-nine units were sold already.
It turns out that Mercedes-Maybach was saving the car for a charity auction, which was held in Bonhams’ The Zoute Sale that took place previously in Belgium. The final bid was 1.2M euros or over $1.42M. There were some bidders keen on the car, according to Bonhams. The final bid was from a Belgian resident.
All of the fees associated with the sale were waived by Bonhams and each last penny will be donated to the Laureus Sport for Good, which is a charity that Mercedes-Benz partners worldwide. The foundation concentrates on helping kids and the youth to overcome discrimination, violence, and disadvantage through sports.
Maybach announced that G650 Landaulet was basically priced from an eye-watering price tag of $754,200. However, the vehicle wasn’t offered for sale in the US.
G650 Landaulet was actually the first SUV of Maybach and features a great open-top riding experience for the passengers in the rear seats. The soft-top roof may be closed or open through a push of a button the glass partition separates rear compartment from the section of the driver. There is also an option to tint glass divider for extra privacy. The rear passengers are also treated to the seats plucked from Maybach S-Class, including the massage function. All of the seats are trimmed with the use of high grade leather with some diamond weave.
But, not all fun is saved for passengers. The driver can take advantage of the 6.0L twin-turbo V12, which produces 621hp and 737 lb ft of torque. There is also a set of portal axles that are borrowed from G500 4x4. Wheel arches are crafted from pure carbon fiber.
