The Mercedes-Maybach G65 4x4² Landaulet, a limited-volume, V12-powered semi-convertible version of the G-Class, has been leaked online ahead of its official debut at the Geneva motor show in early March.
A Russian journalist has posted an image and video on his Instagram account, Automailru, of the model which is yet to be revealed officially by the car maker. However, Mercedes-Maybach released an image of the rear right of the car yesterday, hinting at its imminent arrival.
Set to act as a swansong model for the existing 38-year-old G-Class prior to the introduction of a heavily upgraded variant of the original military-based off-roader later this year, the lavishly equipped model revives the evocative Landaulet name of some of Mercedes' most flamboyant and expensive pre-war models.
Details remain scarce prior to its officially unveiling, but we do know that like the Maybach 62 Landaulet that launched back in 2007, the new G65 4x4² Landaulet features an electrically operated folding fabric roof which opens over the rear seats.
