A Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 4MATIC pulled a derailed truck on a road in Russia. The truck had lost grip on the frozen road and had ended up criss-crossing the way.
Powered by the 5.5-liter AMG V8 engine, the Mercedes-AMG GLS benefits from 585 HP and blows out 760 Nm of torque, sent to all wheels via the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic 7-speed transmission. The massive luxury SUV can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.6 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 250 km/h, but towing a monstrous 4-axle truck is more about power than it is about speed.
At a kerb weight of 2,580 kg and a payload of 3,290 kg, the AMG-made GLS makes its way onto the frosty surface of the road, pulling the truck that is at least 3 times heavier, probably even more if the truck is loaded.
In the 50-second video, the GLS is seen slipping a bit, but eventually finds the power to complete the mission, while spectators cheer on the sides of the road. Well done, almighty GLS!
