With three axles, six wheels and a kerb weight of 3775kg, you’d expect the Mercedes-AMG 6×6 to come out on top in just about any road accident, but that clearly wasn’t the case when a Mansory tuned version of the six-wheeled AMG SUV collided with a Hyundai Santa Fe in China recently.

The 700 horsepower Mansory 6×6 crashed into the Hyundai in Guangzhou in China’s Guangdong Province when it suddenly caught fire. The photos make the accident out to be a minor fender bender, so its possible the collision dislodged a fuel line or knocked another component loose to spark the blaze.

The Mansory 6×6 is powered by Mercedes-AMG’s 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8, with output bumped to 700hp and 708 lb-ft of torque. In China, consumers must pay a 17 percent import tax on cars along with a second tax based on engine size. Considering the Mansory 700 6×6 can sticker for $800,000 or more, we’re willing to bet this owner was none too please to see his investment literally go up in flames.
