    Brabus importing the G63 AMG 6x6? Own a street legal 6x6 G63 in the USA for only $850k

    So you have probably heard of the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon (Geländewagen) which has been in production since 1979 up until the present. This chassis has seen all kinds of variations from civilian to military use and the most radical of which is arguable the 6x6 G63 AMG version you see here. Yes, this is a six-wheel drive G63 AMG sporting a twin turbo 5.5 liter M157 V8 under the hood. The M157 is responsible for moving about 9000 pounds of G-Class in this configuration.

    That is almost twice the weight of the already hefty standard G63 AMG which weighs around 5800 pounds. The G63 6x6 simply dwarfs its standard G63 AMG sibling in size and heft. It's 8 inches taller and is able to ford a river with up to 39 inches of depth. You know, just in case you get trapped in a rain forest by the Amazon somewhere.

    There's also an additional supplementary 13.2 gallon fuel tank which makes for a total of 38.6 gallons of fuel capacity. That will likely go pretty quickly moving this behemoth around (which is limited to a 100 miles per hour top speed).

    Mercedes-Benz asks roughly $550,000 for this vehicle overseas. Brabus is apparently working with some partners to bring this car in to the United States at $850k a pop. That's a large chunk of change but there also seem to be other channels for getting this vehicle into the US as photos of the 6x6 G63 spotted at the Weistec Engineering facilities in Costa Mesa, California show.

    All BenzBoost knows is that having one of these in the garage would be a lot of fun offering unparalleled exclusivity. And how about a G63 AMG 6x6 with some upgraded turbos just to add to the ridiculousness? BenzBoost may just have some information to add on that topic in the coming weeks.

    That's the whole point. If you have stupid money this is one of the coolest things you can buy. If I had stupid money I'd get one that I just used for running over Priuses.

    I just wish it was fully enclosed with a cargo area like the regular G-wag instead of that truck type look. Even if it is an enclosed cargo area I would just put the biggest sound system I could fit in that thing and just cruise. haha it would be great for towing a car hauler with my race car on it all over the country

    I would want one of these with 1000 to all six wheels. How cool would it be to say you have a thousand horsepower to six wheels? In a 9000 pound German off road tank?

    @Sticky im on weistec's email chains and they just developed their own G63 6x6 program. They sell you the truck with upgraded turbos, downpipes, weistec tune good for 850HP & 900 Ft pounds of torque and I believe a built transmission. What a badass ride I wish I had that kind of F U money itd be first on my list. Climb mount Everest and then smoke the douche with the straight piped G37 in the same truck lol

    Understood ! What a badass truck man glad the accountants at MB don't neuter the engineers and let them do insane things like this. It's got to be one of the most epic production vehicles ever 6x6 5 electronically locking diffs, portal axles, 19 inches of ground clearance and instead of a lumpy diesel a 5.5L TT V8 lol still a mind $#@! when I think about it
