Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 to Cost $600,000 in Germany
The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 will never come to the U.S., but just in case you've been itching to know the European price, Autocar reports the wild six-wheeled G-Wagen will cost you 451,010 euros including Germany's 19-percent value added tax (roughly $609,000 at today's exchange rate).
The G63 AMG 6×6 goes on sale in Europe next month, with a production run of 20-30 units planned, and many are expected to be sold in the Middle East as well. Autocar reports the more-than-half-million-dollar all-terrain vehicle will only be available in left-hand-drive markets, so the U.K. will have to make do with the four-wheeled version. As we previously reported, the G63 AMG 6×6 utilizes five electronic locking differentials and has 18 inches of ground clearance thanks to a portal axle design borrowed from the Unimog. The six-wheeled beast is powered by a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 making 529 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque, and mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. Curb weight is reported to be more than four tons, at about 8320 pounds.
Independent Mercedes tuner Brabus recently got its hands on the G63 AMG 6×6, which the firm transformed into the B63S-700 6×6 for the Frankfurt Motor Show last month. That custom off-roader boasted 700 hp and more than 700 lb-ft from its tuned twin-turbo V-8, along with unique exterior touches and a bespoke interior. Pricing for that ultra-exclusive G-Class hasn't been revealed.
So if you were considering a move to Europe just to own the mother of all G-Wagens, now you know how many pennies you'll need to save.
