Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6: Official

Mercedes-Benz has built a six-wheeled – and six-wheel drive – Mercedes G63 AMG which isn’t just a one-off but is being produced to order.

You may think the Mercedes G63 AMG is about as extreme a G-Wagon can get (well, if you live in the UK where we don’t get the G65, that is). But Mercedes has now gone one better.

The Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6 is a six wheel, six-wheel drive, monster G-Wagon which you would normally think was a just a one-off monster created for an Arabian buyer. But this is actually a fully fledged AMG creation – so far they’ve built two of them – that you can actually order from Mercedes-Benz.

The G63 AMG 6×6 starts off with the underpinnings of the regular G63 – which means a 5.5 litre Bi-Turbo V8 that can get to 62mph in 5.4 seconds – and adds in helical springs and dampers (and an extra axle) to create a G-Wagon that really only belongs in the desert.

Despite the G63 6×6′s obvious differences from its 4×4 sibling. Mercedes has been building G-wagons for so long, and in so many different configurations, that just about everything in this ‘Desert Storm’ G-Wagon came straight out of the MB parts store, including the 6×6 drivetrain that came from a version of the G-Wagon Mercedes build for the Australian army.

Inside, despite the added length, the 6×6 G63 gets just four seats trimmed in designo leather in a choice of red or light brown with contrasting stitching,  and the pick-up bit at the back gets covered in highly durable bamboo.

The Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6 is heading for proper small-series production if there’s enough demand. Which we’re sure there will be.

    It’s a bit hard to have a six wheel drive without six wheels

    I can only see this where oil is cheap or diamonds, gold & sadly drugs are

    This will not be cheap $85,000 aus minimum add services on to it & tyres yeah you need $100,000 to buy & keep this on the road for 5 years easy

  2. Dave Price says:

    How much is it? Or is it the case that if you need to ask you can’t afford it?

    • We think around £400k, although Mercedes aren’t saying officially.

      • Dave Price says:

        To be frank I can’t even afford the standard G63!! But Mercedes62 is right that every premiership footballer in the country will be posing around in one of these before too long.

  3. Mercedes62 says:

    I love the G63 but this probably means every footballer in Cheshire will be running round in one of these monstrosities before long. God help us!
