After two strange six-wheeled Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG’s were recently spotted being shipped to the Middle East, Mercedes-Benz has officially confirmed that the G63 AMG 6×6 will hit the production line in extremely limited numbers.
When it goes on sale in October, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 is expected to be the most expensive Mercedes-Benz currently on sale, behind the SLS Electric Drive, with a price tag of at least three times more than the 137,000 euro price of the standard G63 AMG.
The car gets its origins form the C320 CDI developed specifically for the Australian army recently and measures an incredible 5867mm long, 2111mm wide and 2209mm tall. What these figures mean is that the Mercedes-Benz G63 6×6 is an impressive 43.5 inches longer than the standard car, and once seeing the car in action, it’s little wonder why the extra two wheels add so much length.
Whereas the military version only features a 3.0-liter diesel engine, this unit which is available to anyone rich enough in the public is fitted with the G63 AMG’s 5.5-liter bi-turbo V8 engine pumping out 536hp and 560lb-ft of torque. This engine is then mated to a seven-speed 7G-tronic transmission driving all six wheels.
Despite its heavy weight of 8,322 pounds, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 can reportedly sprint to 100km/h in just 6 seconds onto a top speed of 160km/h.
Just 20-30 units are expected to be produced annually.
