The last of the 99 Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet to be auctioned at Bonhams

Introduced at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet is one of the most over-the-top vehicles the German automaker has ever made. Out of the 99 that were built, 98 of them were sold even before the Geneva Motor Show came to a close. The one left was retained by Mercedes-Benz with the purpose of auctioning it for charity. The ultra-rare luxury SUV is set to go under the hammer at Bonhams, at its Zoute auction, on 6 October and the proceeds will be donated to Laureus Sport for Good, a charity of which Mercedes-Benz is a global partner. The foundation focuses on helping children and young people overcome violence, discrimination and disadvantage through sport.

With a tough and rugged exterior that can take on the most challenging of the terrains and a cabin more luxurious than the best penthouse suites imaginable, the G650 Landaulet became the most expensive SUV ever built with a price-tag of €630,000 (approximately $760,000). It is powered by Mercedes AMG V12 biturbo engine, capable of producing 630bhp and a peak torque of 1000 Nm. The luxury SUV is more than 5 meters long and 2 meters high, with a ground clearance of half a meter. This is also the very first G 650 Landaulet to come to public auction, that too straight from the manufacturer, which makes it an exceedingly rare opportunity.
