If you thought that the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 that graced our covers was already delightfully ridiculous enough, think again.
Readers will remember that the twin-turbo V8 5.5 litre engine in the “standard” G63 6×6 produces a smidge under 400kW of power and 759Nm of torque. It has five lockable differentials and three driven axles, an approach angle of 52 degrees and departure angle of 54 degrees.
Brabus has added 114kW to this already hefty power rating, and increased the torque by 200Nm by swapping the turbos out for their own high-boost units, as well as changing the exhaust system. The so-called “B63S–700 6×6” produces 514kW and 959Nm of torque. The big, four-ton off-roader’s 0 – 100km/h time is a measly 7,4 seconds.
And, if six wheels wasn’t enough of an aesthetic boost, Brabus has also added chrome and carbon fibre to the exterior, as well as a rather dramatic interior. The red leather cabin contrasts the cream of the “standard” model quite drastically.
