The W463 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Cabriolet is one of those vehicles that you might have a hunch is special, but aren’t quite sure how special until you really look at it and then ultimately look at what kind of prices they are commanding. I’ve taken a look at these G Cabrios before and my consensus is that they are loved for two reasons. The first being that they are extremely rare and people love to have what others can’t get. Second reason being that it is simply a G-Wagen with a power convertible top. Jeeps and Defenders with cloth tops are cool and all, but just easily pushing a button to raise or lower the top on your SUV that can literally climb a mountain is a luxury that people will seriously pay for. This 2006 G500 Cabrio up for sale in Switzerland looks to be case once again.

Just to be clear here, I got in touch with the seller and even though the auction says this G is in Houston, Texas, it is actually in Switzerland. This isn’t ideal if you are looking to pickup the car in America and I’m not sure why the seller doesn’t come out and say it isn’t in Houston. The good news is that these are able to be federalized by a company in Baltimore, Maryland of all places but you will need to add front and rear side markers, among other things, that this Cabrio lacks. Other than that massive headache, this thing looks really nice. Usually these are used as leisure vehicles at vacation homes and things of the same ilk so when these do come up for sale, they aren’t in too bad a shape. The tight photos aren’t helping anyone get a good look at the W463, but we can assume nothing is out of sorts with it.
Now lets talk about price. The bidding has reached $100,000 already and I don’t think it is even close to stopping. The best comparable example I could find was a 2005 Cabriolet with 23,000 miles that sold for $140,000 at auction back in the spring. Granted, this example was already federalized and ready to go to its new owner so that maybe had some influence on the price, but I don’t think this one is going to be too far off. The example I linked to in my introduction was a 1999 and listed for $150,000 and I’m sure it didn’t have trouble finding a new owner. My guess? I think $125,000 wouldn’t be crazy if it was a North American bidder. If a European buyer wants it, probably even more. I told you these things were expensive.
