History of the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6

The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 was first developped for the Australian Army in 2007, then it was manufactured as a SUT (Sport Utility Truck) between 2013 and 2015. This monster was the largest street legal offroad car and one of the most expensive too ($US 511,000 - source).

As Mercedes sold more examples than expected (more than 100 vehicles), the commercialization was stopped in 2015 in order to maintain the model's exclusivity.

One intesting feature is the tyre control system to adapt the traction to the driving surface, only 20 seconds from 0.5 bar (sand) to 1.8 bar (road).

This model is finished in grey with two-tone black and tan leather. The interior is only luxe with electronically adjustable Designo leather seats, all the confort to jump dunes. :-)

I think they just look weird with 6 wheels, cheers mate.

Not a fan too...
If you commute with it, it must be easy to make space in traffic jam :-)

We love these, after seeing it for real in London 2 years ago, thank you

I didn't think to find this car outside the Middle East (sand and cheap gasoline)... I can't imagine to park this monster in London's streets :-)
