Video: Stuck Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 gets Rescued by a Tractor
With monstrous power, an extra pair of wheels, and loads of off-road tech and features at its disposal, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 is one hell of an SUV/truck; seemingly unstoppable when driven in the roughest terrains.
Well, "seemingly" seems like the proper word after seeing the video above, in which one of these behemoths gets stuck on a beach and needs to be towed out of the sand by what appears to be a Caterpillar front-end loader.
That’s really embarrassing for a potent vehicle such as the G63 AMG 6x6, even though there are no specific details as to what might have caused the vehicle to get stuck. At first glance, everything seems to be in order, but a closer inspection of the footage reveals a deflated left, front tire.
It’s true that the G63 AMG 6x6 is fitted with a self-deflating/inflating tire system that helps it move in various terrains, but this time we’re looking at a flat tire. Of course, the embarrassing moment could be linked to another issue that’s not visible on the outside. Maybe an electrical failure of some sort?
Either way, you don’t get to see a monster of an SUV that costs more than half a million bucks being dragged away by a tractor too often. It must be pretty frustrating for the driver to not be able to use those 544 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque.
