Mercedes-Benz introduced the G63 AMG 6X6 back in 2013 and made quite a buzz with its six-wheeled vehicle which was built especially for the Middle East market. However, Brabus took things even further when it unveiled its B63S-700 G63 AMG 6X6 at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Its version boosted the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine from 544 hp (400 kW) and 700 Nm of torque to an impressive 700 hp (515 kW) and 960 Nm of torque.
Bolted to the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission, the engine is able to push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.4 seconds, while top speed is 100 mph or 160 km/h.
Besides the engine upgrades, the Brabus B63S-700 also comes with new design tweaks which includes a new front grille as well as a redesigned front bumper and new exhaust system.
The big surprise seen on this vehicle is the use of red carbon fiber, used on the custom front hood with an air-extracting vent, front and rear fenders as well as on the mirror caps. There are no words about the price of this monster but we do know that the standard version costs over 500,000 euros.
Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 is a true super off-roader both in terms of performance and visual appearance. This is evident on its large tires on the three axles, its clean-cut lines and huge ground clearance. It features a length of 5.87 meters and a width of 2.10 meters, with an interior height of nearly 2.30 meters.
The new G63 AMG 6x6 is instantly recognizable as a high-performance AMG model, thanks to certain elements like characteristic AMG brand face consists of the "twin blade" radiator grille with chrome-plated twin louver and chrome-plated grille.
This distinctive grille features a design inspired by the classic G-Class form, lending the new G63 AMG 6x6 with an elegant, off-road character. The front AMG bumper comes with three large air intakes that channel airflow to the cooling modules. The masculine appearance of the new G63 AMG 6x6 is highlighted by a number of accentuating elements like the vertical stainless-steel inserts in high-gloss chrome.
When viewed from the sides, the new Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6 reveals up to two rear doors, with the body featuring a number of similar looks with current four-wheel model. However, there are also numerous differences between the 6x6 and its four-wheel counterpart.
These differences include carbon fiber integrated LED light strips (above the windscreen), flared carbon fiber wheel arches, stainless steel running boards and a ride height much higher than the four-wheel model. In addition, the series-production section of the body has been extended by a third side window, while the pickup section has been expanded by the stainless steel roll-over bar and rear, twin flared carbon fiber wheel arches. The load area, meanwhile, is lined with tough and durable bamboo and is accessible with a tailboard.
The interior of the Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6 is laden with a new dashboard with the central color screen, an AMG instrument cluster with a color TFT screen and the AMG main menu. It features a separate gear indicator and AMG door sill panels illuminated in white. It also features a high-quality E-SELECT lever with the embossed AMG emblem.
The entire lining of the front and rear door and the upholstery for the four individual seats are crafted from designo leather appointments -- in either classic red or light brown – as complemented by contrasting topstitching and diamond-pattern quilting. In addition, the entire dashboard is wrapped in leather with the exclusive contrasting topstitching. Moreover, the interior of the G63 AMG 6x6 features AMG carbon fiber trim and the Alcantara covering on the roof liner and pillars. Its rear panel is also trimmed in leather.
