Just about every model of car Mercedes creates is special. While they’re best known for sedans that drive with hefty power but feel sporty at the same time, they also have become known for making excellent sports utility vehicles, that are safe and roomy, yet still as powerful as other, lesser-than sports cars. One of their models of SUV had the ability to give from zero to sixty in under six seconds. That alone is what makes Mercedes such a unique luxury car company.
Which is why the auction of this 2017 Mercedes-Maybach G650 Laundalet so intriguing, as it’s a completely unique vehicle made by a major car company like Mercedes that will most likely never be made again. In fact, it is only one of 99 that were ever made and clearly owned by an incredibly wealthy, well connected car enthusiast. The Laundelet model has been in production since 1979 and is basically Mercedes’ version of the Jeep, only leaps and bounds more luxurious and powerful. With a V12 engine in the front, an electric fabric top in the back and portal axles below, this may be one of the finest all-terrain vehicles ever made.
Most admirably, all of the profits from this 2017 Mercedes-Maybach G650 Laundalet on the auction block will go to charity.
