Driving A Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6 Turns You Into King Of The Road

More than four years have passed since Mercedes-AMG first detailed the production version of the G63 6×6, but the wild SUV continues to amaze in all kinds of ways.

Over the years, we’ve seen the gargantuan Benz been put through its paces on sand dunes, beaches, and various harsh environments, while it was also involved in some spectacular accidents, but how does the world look from its cockpit?

To answer this question for all of you who weren’t able to convince your local Mercedes salesperson for a test joy ride is a POV video of the monstrous 6×6, which proves that despite weighing as much as a small house, and having two extra wheels, it moves easily.

It’s capable of some amazing straight-line performance, courtesy of the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that powers it, sending 536hp and 560lb-ft (760Nm) of torque to the ground via a 7-speed automatic gearbox.

If the video has opened your appetite, then you can always quench it by purchasing a Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6 from the used car market. Of course, you should be ready to spend a significant chunk of cash for one, because they usually retail from at least $600,000. Depending on equipment, number of miles covered, and other factors, some examples are even known to change hands for in excess of $1 million.
