The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 is possibly the most capable off roader to have ever been built and sold to the public. With its ludicrous price tag of more than $500,000 it is, however, only affordable to the world’s wealthiest individuals many of whom are in the Middle East. This particular G63 AMG 6×6 was sent to Russia where, as you can see, it was crashed and left on its side, the first time we have seen the 6×6 being involved in an incident.
Bizarrely, the vehicle 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 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 resulting in the beast that is the G63 AMG 6×6, certainly one of the most bombastic cars ever built!
