The outrageous Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 has been given an equally monstrous price tag, with the double-cab SUV set to cost a cool €451,010 (£379,244) after tax.
The G63 AMG 6x6, which is due to go on sale next month and was tested by Autocar earlier this year, is the largest and most extreme road-legal SUV to ever hail from Mercedes’ road car operations.
There is no UK list price for the left-hand-drive only vehicle because it will not go on sale in right-hand markets, but in mainland Europe, it will be offered for €379,000 (approximately £319,000) before tax.
However, adding Germany’s value added tax, which currently stands at 19 per cent, to the price brings the total to £379,244. By comparison, a four-wheeled G63 AMG costs £123,140 including VAT.
An authentic off-roader derived from a military vehicle, the G63 AMG 6x6 is being produced by Mercedes-Benz’s Austrian partner Magna Steyr in a run of no more than 30 units. Deliveries to customers are expected to start early next year.
The G63 AMG 6x6 features six driven wheels, low-range gearing, five differential locks and a tyre control system for its standard 37-inch wheels. The vehicle is powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre V8 from AMG with 536bhp.
Torque is 560lb ft – crucial in providing the shove required to haul the big four-seater’s considerable 3775kg kerb weight.
