Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6
The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 is an all-wheel drive six-wheeled SUV in the back of a pickup truck. It is designed on the platform of the improved Gelendvagen and at the same time with the newest limit of possibilities, popular luxury and the power unit from AMG easily copes with the highest sand dunes, saving at the same time good directional stability and royal comfort. Gourmets from the German brand’s tuning studio were able to surprise the whole world by creating such a monster in 2013. The whole model range is Mercedes-Benz.
The front part of the German repeats the aggressive look of standard Gelendwagen, which is not to say for the stern – there are a pair of wheels on each side and the body. Such a car looks a little fickle, but he is a clear favorite. Equipping it, the company did not leave the slightest possibility of doubt, when it put on a huge pickup truck in 37-inch rims, with which the clearance could rise from the standard 210 mm to 460 mm.
The all-wheel drive SUV is 2.3 metres high, 2.1 metres wide and about 5.87 metres long, which is one metre longer than the donor version.

Moreover, three air intakes were installed on the front of the bumper with a safety arch and a sports exhaust system. The luggage compartment was to be made a sturdy bamboo.
Getting into the Mercedes salon, you realize that the quality of finishing was not saved. Four individual seating chairs were delivered, which are covered with pleasant light brown or red Designo leather. The new version uses a completely fresh dashboard with a color display and leather wrap.
In addition, there are carbon fibre inserts, white illumination of each door sill and a comfortable gearshift lever, which migrated from the SLS AMG. The two real “king’s” thrones are installed at the back and have electric adjustments, electric heating and ventilation, and an individual dashboard to adjust the entertainment center with a pair of displays built into the backrests of the front seats.
Under the hood, the tuning studio decided to install a V8 engine with a pair of turbines, the volume of which is equal to 5.5 liters and develops 544 horsepower.

The company claims that fuel consumption on European roads varies in the range of 16 – 22 liters per 100 km.
Both fuel tanks together have 160 litres of fuel. The ford’s ability to ford has been increased by 40 cm, and now the figure is one meter! The structural strength of the large pickup truck is enhanced by the stainless steel frame. Interestingly, the mini truck is capable of lifting about 650 kg.
