This insane Mercedes-Benz G 550 six-wheeler is probably one of the wildest vehicles ever listed. It is a custom build sporting some Brabus magic powder and is now for sale.
Mercedes did offer a G offspring with three axles and six wheels. But that is not it. It was a super potent pickup truck, mostly built for the customers in the Middle East, ready to go dune bashing and ride in style. The exact number of the 6×6 pickup trucks is not known. But rumor has it that Mercedes built around 100 of those.
The one who ordered this Mercedes-Benz G 550 Six-Wheeler probably never got to snatch one of the official run. So they made their own. But never got to drive it much. Registered in California and sporting a clean, accident-free Carfax report, it comes with only 583 miles (938 kilometers) on the odometer.
It displays a black-and-beige paint scheme and the seats are wrapped in black leather. It proudly wears 20-inch Black Rhino wheels. Brabus also worked its magic on it, putting a new front bumper, spare tire cover, tinted rear lights and a roof rack. For that extra wow factor, the three-pointed star logo in the radiator grille is illuminated.
The car rolled off the assembly lines of the plant in Magna Steyer, Austria, sporting front, center and rear locking diffs. It sure would be interesting to know how those work right now with the three axles in place. The Mercedes-Benz G 550 six-wheeler also comes with heated, ventilated and power-adjustable front seats, heated rear seats and a Harman Kardon LOGIC7 sound system. Ambient lighting, front and rear parking sensors and blind spot monitoring are also on the menu. But you must know that the 2017 G-Class features an aftermarket display infotainment system.
The hood shelters the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 with 416 horsepower (422 PS) and 450 lb-ft (610 Nm) of torque. A seven-speed automatic transfers these figures to the tarmac.
Seller honestly tells of the flaws of the Mercedes-Benz G 550 six-wheeler
The seller honestly mentions the flaws. The G 550 has some scratches on the rear seats and some creases on the driver’s seat’s outer bolsters. How did those show up after less than 600 miles?
Three more days to the end of the bid, that currently reached $80,000. We bet the seller expected people to take the website by storm to try to buy the insane Mercedes-Benz G 550 six-wheeler.
