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.
