Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton could soon add a white Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 to his ever-growing collection of cars after posting the image above to his Facebook page.
Hamilton claims that he is thinking of purchasing a G63 AMG 6×6 which is somewhat surprising considering that production of the insane offroader ended in April after all examples were sold. However, we wouldn’t be surprised if the German manufacturer decided to produce one additional unit for its successful F1 driver.
When the G63 AMG 6×6 first hit the market, it was one of the firm’s most expensive models only behind the Mercedes-Benz SLS Electric Drive with a starting price of 379,000 euros.
In case you didn’t know, 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 AMG 6×6 is an impressive 43.5 inches longer than the standard car.
Beyond the addition of two extra wheels and an additional axle has well as a completely new body incorporating flared arches, the G63 AMG 6×6 uses the same 5.5-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine coupled with a seven-speed transmission like the more run-of-the-mill G63 AMG. As a result, it delivers an identical 536 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque. Drive is sent to all six wheels meaning the off-roader can reach 100 km/h in an impressive 6 seconds and a limited top speed of 160 km/h.
