Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet is too much in so many ways

Why bother with a regular G-Class when you can slap some S-Class seats in the back and add a convertible top?

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

There's a giant center console with tables that fold out.

And since it's basically a limousine, there's a glass partition that can raise and lower between the front and rear seats.

It borrows the portal axles from the Mercedes-Benz G-Class 4x4^2.

This thing is ridiculous.

It's a shame it won't be coming to the US, mostly because the roads aren't rated for something this obscenely large.
