GEAR: Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 (VIDEO)

|  March 04, 2013 |

Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6We’ve seen some pretty cool videos of pickups recently, but they all pale in comparison to this monster. Actually, to call this vehicle a pickup seems a bit like an injustice considering its six (yes six) massive 37-inch wheels and its 5.5-liter V8 pushing 536 hp. The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 started out as a version of the G320 CDI for the Australian army, according to Autocar. But that Aussie special only managed 230 hp. (It also lacked a truck bed and only had four measly wheels.) It’s said that only 20-30 of these bad boys will be produced each year. And the price tag matches its awesome factor: the 6×6 will set you back $525,000. Be sure to watch the video from Mercedes below which captures the 6×6′s moves across the dunes of the Namibian desert.
