When the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 was launched last year, it was confirmed that the utterly ridiculous off roader wouldn’t be coming to the North America, the U.K, Japan or Australia. Consequently, it was assumed that most would be heading to the Middle East. Despite this, Mercedes-Benz has just confirmed that five examples of the G63 AMG 6×6 will be heading to Japan this year.
When converted into local currency, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 will cost Japanese buyers about 80 million yen or just over $780,000 in the United States!
The car gets its origins form the C320 CDI developed specifically for the Australian army recently and measures an incredible 5867 mm long, 2111 mm wide and 2209 mm 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 536 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque. This engine is then mated to a seven-speed 7G-tronic transmission driving all six wheels.
