Mercedes is finished building one its most ridiculous projects to date, the G63 AMG 6×6.
With just over 100 sold, the brand is calling it quits to make sure that these behemoths retain their exclusivity. Base pricing for the massive G63 starts at 379,000 Euros or roughly $500,000 USD and power comes from a twin-turbo V8 that makes 536 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque. Complete with six wheels, this G63 also packs five locking differentials.
Although the six-wheel version is going away, Mercedes is planning to show off a more sane four-wheel variant at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. The new version, known as the G500 4×4², uses portal axles and other off-road goodies from the 6×6, but opts for a naturally aspirated V8 and just two axles.
