Being showcased in the Geneva motor show, the Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulets around twice more than the Bentayga at $500,000. Offers a V12 churning 630hp and 738 Pound-Feet (mind you it isnt Nm and roughly translates to around 1000+ Nm)

Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulets: World's most-expensive SUV at Geneva Motor Show

For those who think an all-terrain conquering mammoth beast on wheels cannot be audaciously luxurious, a visit to the ongoing Geneva Motor Show is a must. For here is where Mercedes has showcased the Maybach G 650 Landaulets - the world's most-expensive sport utility vehicle (SUV).

At $500,000, the Maybach G 650 Landaulets is clearly meant for the uber rich and immensely famous. And with only 99 units planned for production, it is also extremely exclusive for an absolutely elite club. While indeed more expensive than its rivals from Bentley and Rolls Royce, the Maybach G 650 Landaulets does offer quite the bang for the big bucks.

Standing at seven feet tall, the SUV from the German giants is a majestic beast on wheels. Make that humongous 22-inch wheels. With straight lines and proportions, the Maybach G 650 Landaulets blends raw ruggedness with simplistically sophisticated style. Mercedes claims this SUV can tackle the harshest of road and weather conditions - all while keeping the occupants cocooned in opulent comfort.

The cabin of the Maybach G 650 Landaulets is more like a mobile suite of a seven-star hotel.Visual treats and posh conveniences promise to pamper passengers. Sample this: high-grade temperature-controlled leather seats, massaging feature incorporated in rear seats with 10-inch screens for each passenger, temperature controlled cupholders, folding tables, electronic and dimming glass partition for privacy and a retracting rear roof.

There is a lot on offer for the one in-charge of the drive. The Maybach G 650 Landaulets has a twin-turbocharged V12 powerplant producing 630 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque, according to the company. In addition to it all, the vehicle's off-road abilities are thanks to high-riding portal axles that push it 18 inches of the ground.
Clearly then, the Maybach G 650 Landaulets is a vehicle which deserves envious glances as much as it commands outright respect. Reports suggest it will go on sale in the later half of 2017.
