We didn’t think things could get any more bonkers when Mercedes-Benz released the G63 AMG 6×6. But that’s before we landed in Frankfurt and saw what Brabus has done with the beast.
The Benz tuner par excellence has applied its B63S performance package to increase the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8′s output from 536 horsepower up to 690 and from 561 pound-feet of torque to 708. Driving through all six – count ‘em, six – wheels, that’s enough to propel the four-ton colossus from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 7.4 seconds, which is mighty quick for what essentially amounts to a six-wheeled tank. Brabus kept the 37-inch off-road tires in place, however, limiting top speed to 100 mph.
Aside from the bigger turbos, gold-sheathed intake, high-performance catalysts, 2.9-inch downpipes and stainless steel variable exhaust system and remapped ECU that Brabus fitted to raise the engine’s output, it also installed a new front spoiler, carbon-fiber hood scoop, LED and Xenon lighting and a black and red leather and Alcantara interior.
It’s hard not to give the Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6 the applause it deserves because not doing so would probably result in the vehicle jumping off our page and slapping us silly with those two extra tires.
All joking aside, this vehicle really is one for the ages. Adding German tuner extraordinaire Brabus into the equation, makes this one monster ride that will no doubt leave every other vehicle scampering away and cowering in fear by the vehicle’s mere presence.
At the Frankfurt Auto Show , Brabus will present its program for the G63 AMG 6×6. You had better find a nice place to hide because if this Brabus-tuned G63 AMG 6×6 finds you looking at it funny, it might just decide to give you a knee-buckling stare of its own.
Give credit to Brabus for taking the time to work on a vehicle like this. Chances are, the company enjoyed working on it so much that Brabus engineers likely “tested” the model extensively.
