Every once in a while, a car manufacturer will reveal a car out of this world and so unexpectedly, that the entire automotive industry will pause and do a double-take to see if the car is real. Lamborghini does this quite frequently with cars like the Veneno, Egoista and Asterion and last year, the Italian firm was joined by Mercedes-Benz when it unveiled the G63 AMG 6×6 out of the blue.
Created as the ultimate luxurious offroader for the world’s ultra-wealthy, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 combines impressive power and performance in a menacing package to perfectly highlight one’s societal status. When pictured like this example, the G63 AMG 6×6 is even more eye-catching!
In case you didn’t know, 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.
