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

Yes, although we had our first look at the massive (and insane) Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 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 6×6 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.
