While we eagerly await Richard Hammond’s test driver of the insane Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6 in Top Gear Season 21, we can at least salivate over the following white example recently delivered to Warsaw, Poland.
Behind the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive, the G 63 AMG 6×6 is the most expensive car offered by the German marque. It 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 G 63 AMG’s 5.5-liter bi-turbo V8 engine pumping out 536 hp and 560 lb-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 G 63 AMG 6×6 can reportedly sprint to 100 km/h in just 6 seconds onto a top speed of 160 km/h. Just 20-30 units are expected to be produced annually.
