The Desert Daredevil : Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6

Mercedez Benz has finally unveiled its most powerful off roader G63 AMG 6X6 which uses a twin turbocharged 5.5 liter V8 engine mated to a 7 speed gearbox producing an output of 552PS to all of its 6 wheels.

It comes equipped standard with 18″ beadlock wheels wrapped in gummy 37″ tires, and can accelerate from 0–60 MPH in 7.8 seconds with a top speed limited to 100 MPH, which is quite impressive considering its 9049-pound curb weight.

The G63 AMG 6×6 features a compressor which allows it to reduce or increase tyre pressure in order to adapt the traction to the driving surface, especially in desertlike environments. Therefore, the compressor fills four containers with 20 litres each to allow fast inflation of the tyres. This makes it possible to change from sandy deserts to regular streets in less than twenty seconds.

The G63 AMG 6×6 was launched in early 2013. The company decided to stop sales of the car and declared the model completely sold out in early 2015 to maintain the model’s exclusivity. Mercedes-Benz managed to sell more units of the G63 AMG 6×6 than originally anticipated. The last customer delivery of the G63 AMG 6×6 left the G-Class factory in Graz, Austria in May 2015.
