Another gem of automotive engineering will be auctioned at this year’s ZOUTE SALE® by Bonhams: the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet, one of only 99 ever made and the first to be offered for sale at public auction. And even better: all proceeds will be donated to charity.
The ultra-rare SUV was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. The whole run of 99 cars was sold by the end of the show! The car that will be auctioned at the ZOUTE SALE® by Bonhams on Friday 6 October is the first of the series that was offered for sale at that public auction. For fans, it’s a unique opportunity to own one of the most impressive, luxurious and coveted 4x4s ever. Bonhams expects the car to fetch more than the catalogue price of € 630,000 (excl. VAT). Hundreds of potential buyers registered their interest at the Geneva Motor Show.
Luxurious muscle car
The impressive look of the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet catches the eye: it is more than five metres long, two metres high and has a ground clearance of half a metre (due to the portal axles). Under the hood, there’s a powerful Mercedes AMG V12 biturbo engine, generating a formidable 630 hp. The angular body is in sharp contrast to the luxurious limousine interior with its individually adjustable heated seats, extendible leather tables and canvas top that opens with a press of a button. This SUV guarantees a stylish, comfortable driving experience over even the most challenging terrain.
The SUV will be auctioned at the ZOUTE SALE® by Bonhams with all proceeds, including the auctioneer’s commission, going to Laureus Sports For Good. This charity was founded in 2000 in response to Nelson Mandela’s statement at the Laureus World Sports Award that ‘sport has the power to change the world’. Laureus Sports For Good supports more than 100 initiatives in 40 countries. Each project tackles problems relating to health, education, gender equality, inclusiveness and conflict management.
