Possibly the world’s most opulent off-road vehicle, a 2017 Mercedes Maybach G650 Landaulet, a hybrid of supreme luxury and SUV brute force, has sold at auction for more than one million pounds.
Only 99 were made and this Mercedes Maybach was the last hand-crafted model off the production line.
New it would have been advertised for £560,000, but this one raised double that after being sold for charity.
Mercedes Maybach makes light work of inhospitable terrain
The ultra-rare and superlative SUV makes light work of the most inhospitable terrain and all the while lavishes driver and passengers with the ultimate luxury.
The Mercedes Maybach features massage seats, silver Champagne flutes stashed in a special compartment, heated cup holders, fold-out leather tables, a state-of-the art entertainment system with twin televisions, and a privacy screen between the driver and passengers that can be switched from clear to opaque.
The car was donated to a Bonhams’ Zoute Sale in Belgium, to raise cash for the Laureus Sport for Good foundation. The auction house waived its fees and all proceeds of the sale. The buyer was an unnamed Belgian national.
Mercedes Maybach features every luxury imaginable
Speaking after the sale, Bonhams’ Philip Kantor said: “The Mercedes Maybach has almost every luxury imaginable.
“Massage chairs, heated cup holders, fold out leather tables, silver champagne flutes, and so much more – it’s phenomenal.
“It is certainly capable of proper off-roading, and was built with that in mind. It has an enormous ground clearance of 17.7 inches, enough to manage any bog, bush or fallen tree you might come across. It is simply incomparable in relation to other luxury 4x4s.”
Mercedes Maybach for luxury and intensity
“Not only does it have a far more luxurious interior, but is also capable of far more intense driving. It is almost impossible to think of terrain that would begin to challenge the car.”
