More Photos Of The Wild Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6

Yes, although we had our first look at the massive (and insane) Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 a few weeks back, it seemed to come a little ahead of schedule. The full array of press materials and specifications weren’t posted to Mercedes’ press site until today, so we’ve circled ‘round to bring you an uber-gallery of the uber-Gelandewagen.

Better yet, here are a few additional fun facts on this insane machine.

-THERE ARE TWO! Yes, AMG is allegedly still evaluating an extremely limited production run (i.e. less than 40), but for now, there are two examples of the luxuriously-trimmed desert runner – one in matte silver paint, and another in white.

-PORTAL AXLES! We suspected that monstrous stance was more than an Ohlins suspension lift. Turns out we were right – like the hallowed Unimog, the G63 6x6 boasts portal axles, which further help increase ground clearance (and ride height). In fact, ground clearance doubles to 460 mm.

-FIVE DIFFERENTIAL LOCKS! Yes, there are five, but like all G-Class models, you apply them in three steps. Stage one: both the transfer case and the rear inter-axle differential (i.e. between the two rears) is locked. Stage two: Both rear axles are locked to equally split traction between the wheels. Stage three; lock the front axle to do the same up front.

-MORE FUN WITH NUMBERS: At last, we have some additional finite dimensions for this beast.

Wheelbase: 13.7 feet Overall Length: 19.25 feet Height: 7.5 feet Width: 6.9 feet Weight: 8488 lbs Approach/Departure angles: 52/54 degrees (stock Gs are 36/27, respectively) Fording depth: 39.4 inches Tilt angle: 30 degrees (58%) Fuel capacity: 42 gallons Fuel economy: Not a concern, at least where most of these are headed… Wheels: 45-inch beadlock alloys Tires: 37 x 12.5 x 18 inch

It would be more desirable to me if they had put an extended passenger area in the back instead of a truck bed.

Obummer wants to know if it is wind or solar powered.
