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.

37in wheels?

Must be a typo? Looking at the picture and comparing to the doors this would mean the doors were about 6ft tall.

Not really much more stupid than a Hummer1. Though it's not built for UK roads or most normal Roads anywhere come to that.

Missed opportunity

I think its way too cheap!

Why 380k, why not 500k or even 775k.

The sort of people who will buy this sort of thing usually have more money than sense and even less style.

Rich Arab's will pay any price to try and look the big hitter for a day.

Expect to see this racing past Saville Row very soon at full revs.

At least it answers that age old question:

Do Germans have a sense of humour?.......HELL YES!

If this is over 3500kg, do

If this is over 3500kg, do you require a special license to drive one?

If I understand correctly, this is a class C vehicle, and cars are class B (less than 3500).
