Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 is allegedly sold out after a production run of little over 100 units. At least this is what GTSpirit.com claims, based on exclusive inside info.
According to the above mentioned source, Daimler decided to stop the sales of the G63 AMG 6×6 mad pick-up truck in order to cement the model’s exclusivity. An interesting choice given that the monster G-Class could theoretically turn a healthy profit for the German company.
With a starting price in excess of 400.000 euros, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 was the exception which confirmed the rule. Which rule? The one which says ‘money is no object’.
The monster pick-up truck took its inspiration from the similar, but infinitely more austere model developed specifically for the Australian army. It is 5867 mm long, 2111 mm wide and 2209 mm tall and features two extra wheels and an additional axle. Power comes from the same 536 HP 5.5-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine used by its humbler and smaller G63 AMG 5-door sibling. Drive is sent to all six wheels via a 7-speed automatic gearbox.
Shah-s, sheikh-s and sultans of the world will soon get the disappointment of their life. No matter how big their cheque-books are, they won’t be able to order the G63 AMG 6×6 anymore. The last example is set to leave the factory in Graz, Austria, this May.
They can take comfort in the thought that the they can redirect their affection towards an equally mad Mercedes-Benz truck, the G500 4×4², launched a week ago at the Geneva motor show. The G63 AMG 6×6’s little brother will be slightly cheaper, at an estimated cost of 400.000 euros.
