What’s the most rapped-about vehicle of all time? Tough call, but both Maybachs and G Wagons are most definitely in the conversation. Now, the evil geniuses at Mercedes have decided to blow the minds and wallets of every emcee worth his salt by unveiling the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet, an outrageously luxurious, oh-so-desirable version of the much-loved SUV.
Ostensibly a grand farewell to the current generation G-Class, the G650 Landaulet is the very definition of “top of the line.” It boasts a twin-turbo V12 with 630 horsepower and 737 ft.-lb. of torque. The wheelbase has been extended 22.75 inches to accommodate a pair of fully-reclinable, heated-massage-giving, calf leather captain’s chairs, which keep their occupants blissfully unaware of any rough terrain the vehicle might encounter through the use of inflatable air chambers. There’s also a glass partition that can go from clear to opaque at the press of a button, heated and cooled cupholders, high-res displays, and an electric soft-top. That sound you hear is Puff’s chequebook flipping open at record speeds.
Mercedes will be manufacturing as many G650 Landaulets as Jay Z has problems. Expect to do battle with him, Future, and every other rapper in your iTunes library if you’re hoping to get your hands on one.
