Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG Revealed

The Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon has been an iconic and unmistakeable luxury SUV ever since its first debut back in 1979. We’ve seen plenty of G-Wagon’s modified over the years, but SR Auto Group’s matte green G63 AMG is certainly one beautiful machine!

Sitting on metallic bronze 22-inch ADV1 7.0 MV2 wheels, this G63 AMG is already unique, but the SR Auto Group took it even further with a full Brabus body makeover.

But Mercedes amplifies this 4×4 to 6×6 with the addition of two wheels, a third axle, and a dramatically stretched body with a pickup bed. Five locking differentials divvy 560 pound-feet of torque among the half-dozen Prius-crushing, 37-inch wheels. A built-in air compressor allows tire fill-ups in the middle of, say, the Wahiba sands. And the ingenious “portal” axle system, developed for the military version, boosts ground clearance to 18 inches and lets the Mercedes wade through more than three feet of water. Sorry, streams and rivulets.

But unlike military editions, the 6×6 is thoroughly opulent throughout, with everything from Benz’s latest infotainment systems to a bamboo-lined cargo bed. With 40 gallons of premium aboard, this fuel-chugging, 8,000-pound beast will make short work of the apocalypse, with perhaps a side trip to scatter civilians in Monaco or East Hampton. One caveat: Those East End coordinates will demand gray-market ingenuity. The plant in Graz, Austria, will hand-build limited numbers of the 6×6—at roughly $500,000 a pop—but America isn’t yet on the list. Soon, we hope.
