2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6

So we all know and love the G63 AMG by Mercedes , but what if four wheels just aren’t enough for you? Well, the German automaker may have just the vehicle for you in the form of a six-wheel-drive variant of the bad-ass G-Class by AMG. The Swedish military is due to get one and the Australian military already has them in service. Unfortunately, there was no way for a civilian to get ahold of one.

Well, Autobild happened to catch one of these bad boys being delivered and it was not wrapped up in the typical military garb. No siree, this beastly Benz looks to be in full-civilian dress. It could be that this is just how Mercedes delivers the six-wheel monster to the military, but we highly doubt that Mercedes would go through the trouble of painting it and installing all of the safety items that civilian cars require just to have the military strip it down.

This points toward Mercedes actually offering this massive SUV up for sale to the general public, which likely gets you off-road nuts all hyped up. Before you get yourself too worked up, we say there is about a 99.999-percent chance that this model will never hit U.S. shores. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Regardless, this production monster truck comes with the AMG-built 5.5-liter V8 engine with 544 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is unknown, but we assume it will feature a 7G-TRONIC transmission. Though the standard G63 AMG screams to 60 mph in only 5.4 seconds, we would be shocked to see this tank get under the 7-second mark.

Update 3/1/2013: Mercedes has just revealed a load of images and a video of the G63 AMG 6x6 on its Facebook page. you can see the video above and the images in the gallery. The German manufacturer has yet to reveal any of the specifications on this military favorite.

Six wheel drive variant is definitely one-of-a-kind. 2013 Mercedes Benz G63 AMG looks powerful and I am not surprised that it is only used by military since the car looks so masculine and good technical features.

When i was just a kid, and my father tried to explain me what a 4x4 car means, I could hardly understand.Now I have grown up and I see a 6x6.I’m sure that at that age, my mind would have got confused really hard..

Its design resembles an old car... but seeing the video, I can say that this SUV is one of the greatest I have ever seen!!

Mercedes Benz has never impressed me so much, as it did this time!Great job, for an utility car!!

2013 is the year of great and powerful cas!Seeing it’s technical features, my jaw just dropped!

This car seems to be very strong!It’s wrong from me to call it a car, it’s actually a monster!

This is the best utility car I have ever seen!I love its designs lines, capacity, power, and absolutely everything!

The petroleum version of color fits better this cars personality, at last, that’s what I have to say, after seeing the pictures in the gallery

Wow, I cannot stop imagining myself going for a truck fight, driving this beast!A black one, even better!

This is a hell of an utility car! Just take a closer look at its design!At fierst, seems to be rough, bold, but if you are looking more carefully, you can see the precious details of it!

Oh man, I love this SUV’s interior!It’s just simply great!Go go, Mercedes!
