YouTube user TouriClips uploaded a video of the actual testing, which can be watched below: What gave the car away as a Maybach was its noticeable longer wheelbase. Then, the wider C-Pillar revealed that the car has more leg-room in its rear cabin. While the current S-Class already allows a nice stretching room for its passengers, comparing the upcoming Maybach with the earlier variants dwarfs them in size.

The Mercedes-Benz Geländewagen is probably the most resilient product of the three-pointed star marque. It has been a popular choice among celebrities and wealthy businessmen who wanted something that would flaunt their aura of influence. One thing noticeable about the G-Wagen is its design has been almost the same since it came out in 1979.
