A Most Ridiculous Cabrio

In a world where every single Facebook user gets spammed by commercials of Supercells ‘award-winning’ mobile game, Clash Royale, there also seems to be enough quirkyness in entirely different areas of the market, like the automotive industry.

And therefore.. Meet the *leaked* Mercedes Benz G650 Cabriolet LWB. Packing extravagant looks and a gas-guzzling V12 with at least 500hp, 800Nm, and nature-defying acceleration. You say; Mercedes had convertible variants of the G-wagon before? True, but those were all based on the short wheel based version (SWB). An example is the G500 Cabriolet Final Edition from 2013, which we conveniently left below.

And in a world where Mercedes seems to have fun launching all kinds of ridiculous variants of the G-Class like the 4×4^2 and the 6×6 (also as G63 AMG), a really monstrous cabrio was dearly missed. Or so it seems.

There still seems to be some discussion about the final name of the product, since Maybach badges are apparently present on the car. Therefore, it could be called something like Mercedes-Maybach G650 Cabriolet, which is in line with Stuttgart’s naming conventions. We also noted that the behemoth borrowed some parts of the 4×4^2, which causes it to have even more ground clearance than a standard G. Speaking about that particular car, which looks like a standard G500 tried to have babies with a Unimog, we found this really nic pic of it:

Unfortunately no official information from Mercedes as of yet.
