Mansory Turns to the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6
Surprising Restraint Shown from the Boutique Tuner
Mansory, a tuner best known for its outlandish exotic and luxury car monstrosities, has turned its attention once again to the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6. The company used several of its usual tricks to turn the giant off-roader into a Mansory, including carbon fiber exterior bodywork, a custom interior, and engine performance modifications, and the end result is not half bad.
Key characteristics of the Mansory build include carbon fiber fender flares, aero-enhanced front carbon fiber ductwork, and a massive lightbar made from, yes, carbon fiber. The headlamp surrounds and radiator grille have been subtly altered as well, calling to mind the Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force concept from 2012 with its mail-slot air inlet. A matching intake shows up on the hood as well. A redesigned rear apron shows up as well.
Under the hood, Mansory has added new pistons, connecting rods, crankshaft, cylinder heads, and many other new parts. A new exhaust system joins in on the fun, giving the Mansory 6x6 a maximum power output of 829 hp, up from 540 hp. Torque is limited to 738 lb-ft, presumably to keep the driveline from grenading itself with every tickle of the accelerator.
Unlike some of the company’s former efforts, the G63 hasn’t been amped up too far (aside from the retina-scorching yellow paint). Perhaps it’s because the 6x6 is already one of the least subtle, most eccentric vehicles on the market today, but Mansory’s modifications don’t seem as ridiculous as they do on, say, a chocolate-colored Rolls-Royce. The whole kit should cost a pretty penny, as the previous Mansory 6x6 added $520,000 to the price of whatever they’re going for on the used market.
