Apparently Mercedes wants to make a convertible G-Class
Is there a market for a G Wagen with a receding hairline?
Back in 2017, Mercedes-Benz came out with something called the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet and it was essentially an extended 4x4 Squared with a convetible portion at the rear. It is incredibly rare and special V12-powered G-Class and just handful were ever built.
However, according to GT Spirit, Mercedes wants to build something like this again and why wouldn't they if Rolls Royce came out with the Boat Tail this year?
The main reason these rumors have surfaced is because Mercedes is said to be hiring new engineers to work on a foldable roof at its Graz factory in Austria, where the G-Class is put together by Magna-Steyr. Sure, these engineers may be making something completely different, but you never know.
If they do make one, then it will likely be based on the current-generation of G-Class but with an extended wheelbase like before and again will be a collaboration with Maybach, most likely.
