Mercedes-Benz officially unveiled today the G63 AMG 6X6, a near-series show vehicle that promises to take the G-Class to another level. As expected, the vehicle is based on the G63 AMG, which means it is powered by the 5.5-liter biturbo V8 engine delivering 544 hp or 400 kw and 700 Nm of torque.
The engine is bolted to the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission paired with the front drive system from the G63 AMG and a rear twin drive train from the 6x6 version, which proved its reliability in service with users such as the Australian army.
In terms of design the G63 AMG features large tyres, a huge ground clearance (it has a height of almost 2.30 metres and a width of almost 2.10 metres), the well-known AMG twin blade radiator grille, carbon fibre for the integrated LED light strips found above the windscreen as well as for the large flared wheel arches, stainless-steel roll-over bar for the rear load area section.
Moreover, the load area features tough and durable bamboo. Inside, the vehicle features classic red or light brown design leather with contrasting topstitching, diamond-pattern quilting, four individual seats which are heated and ventilated, a special centre console for the rear compartment and roof liner and pillars finished in Alcantara covering.
The rear panel is trimmed in leather. Unfortunately we don’t have any specs of the G63 AMG 6x6, but according to the official press release the 3.85-tone pickup is able to impress with its catapult-like acceleration.
