As awesome of a vehicle as the Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6 is, it has one major flaw: our ability to ever drive one (and probably even see one) due to its ultra-limited production figures. It would seem that Mercedes might be looking to do something about that as our spy photographers have spotted this eye-catching, neon-green G-Class (affectionately known as the Green Monster) out testing for the second time now – this time in the frigid and snowy climates of Sweden.

From our vantage point, this mystery super G-Wagen seems to combine the production body of a standard G-Class with the beefed-up suspension components of the amazing Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6. Spotted through that bountiful ride height is the severely beefed-up suspension with obvious internal bypass shocks. Comparing the two sets of spy shots, it doesn’t appear that anything is different with this truck. It’s still running portal axles, meaty tires and the AMG-style wheels, and the camouflage that does little to hide the massive fender extensions.

There is no reason to believe that Mercedes made any changes to the G63 AMG 6x6’s powertrain, which consists of a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 producing 544 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque helping to give this behemoth “catapult-like acceleration.”

The amount of work Mercedes and AMG put into building the 6x6 is commendable, but it also contributed to the limited volume of that truck. Hopefully, the lack of body modifications required to add the extra axle and to create the cargo bed will help make a production case for the 4x4 version more feasible.

We have no idea whether Mercedes plans to introduce a production version of such a mammoth off-roader, but in this truck’s current state, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it on the road this year.

Why it matters

For the second time in less than three months, spy photographers have captured an interesting version of the Mercedes G63 AMG out testing. Does this mean Mercedes-Benz is considering offering this truck on a more large-scale basis? We could only hope so.
