TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Mercedes-Benz creates G63 AMG 6x6

Mercedes-Benz has created the ultimate off-road vehicle in the G63 AMG 6x6, which, claims the German carmaker, "represents the last word in forward-thrusting power far from the beaten track."

Powering it is an AMG engine that produces 536hp and 760Nm, with the AMG SpeedShift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission delivering the power to G63 AMG-sourced front-drive system and the rear-twin drivetrain from the 6x6 version that has already proven its reliability in service with users such as the Australian Army.

It's also equipped with features that one would want in conventional cross-country vehicles, like an off-road low-range ratio in the transfer case, portal axles, five differential locks that can be engaged on the move, and a tire-pressure control system that allows the pressure in the 37-inch tires to be adjusted in record time while the vehicle is running.

"Together, they ensure that the G63 AMG 6x6 has driving dynamics that are more than a match for the toughest terrain," Mercedes-Benz said in a statement.

However, despite its off-road capabilities, the G63 AMG 6x6 isn’t a Dakar-Rally-style vehicle. Thanks to the wealth of interior enhancements from the AMG stable, its occupants enjoy the highest possible degree of comfort.

The G63 AMG 6x6 reportedly welcomes its occupants aboard with an exclusive ambience of classic red or light brown designo leather with contrasting topstitching and attractive diamond-pattern quilting. In addition, the four electrically adjustable individual seats are also heated and ventilated. The rear compartment, meanwhile, is equipped with a special center console, while the roof liner and pillars are finished in an Alcantara covering. The rear panel is trimmed in leather, while the load area is finished in solid bamboo.

As drool-worthy as the G63 AMG 6x6 is, the two units Mercedes-Benz developed are purely show vehicles. The carmaker, however, has said it could go into limited production depending on the public’s response to it. Time to let local Mercedes-Benz distributor CATS Motors know if you’re interested in one.
