The six-wheeled Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG is beyond ridiculous – either in a good or bad way, depending on your specific taste. Based on the 2014 G-Class, but with a host of upgrades, the 6×6 has five differentials, a $615,000 price tag, and off-road credentials that would make an original Army-spec Hummer H1 go weak in the knees. This isn’t stopping Carlsson, a well-known and popular Mercedes-Benz tuner, from upping the game even more, combining a healthy power upgrade along with special, customized interior trimmings to make the G63 AMG 6×6 even more over-the-top, if that’s possible.
The G-Class lineup is already a venerable, capable, and trendy offering, with record-breaking sales. This is impressive, considering this is basically a platform from 1979. That’s right; other than chassis and styling upgrades – along with plenty of modern, Mercedes-Benz luxury added in – you’re looking at an almost 40-year-old design.
Add another $500,000 in off-road hardware and upgrades, and things are bound to get interesting. But that’s just not enough for Carlsson.
