Monstrous Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6 to Enter Production

The confirmation came straight from Mercedes’ head of G Class development, Alex Harries, who said that the German company plans to build 20 to 30 6×6 trucks per year. No exact information has been released yet, but we do know a thing or two about this extreme G63 AMG.Mercedes -Benz G63 AMG 6x6

First of all, it wasn’t build from scratch. The Stuttgart-based automaker used a special 6-wheeled military version of the G320 CDI built for the Australian army since 2011 as a base model. The civilian version benefits from the all-wheel drive system with five differential locks, but gains the G63 AMG’s 5.5-liter V8 for an output of 536 HP and 560 lb-ft of torque.

So now it’s not just huge (almost 6 meters / 232 inches), but performance as well. And while we’re on the subject, Mercedes-Benz claims it will sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than six seconds and have a top speed of 100 mph (160 km/h)! Holy cow! Of course, fuel economy is a whole different story with about just 13 mpg (18 liters / 100 km), but who cares?!
