New $450k 515hp 6 wheel Merc G63

Mercedes-Benz reveals the G63 AMG 66, a six-wheel-drive luxo SUV | Motoramic - Yahoo! Autos

The video is pretty neat. Amazing engineering on this thing. Obviously ridiculous pricing. I have 09 S Class S63 AMG with some mods pushing about 600hp can't imagine that motor but newer in a 6 wheel truck! Would be pretty fun!

OMG, I've always liked those trucks in 4x4. I saw the baddest one ever tear out of the valet parking in front of the Equinox gym in West LA last summer, he ripped a nice U-turn laid down the rubber and let the engine roar. I guess he was pretty pumped after his workout.

I can only imagine the fun I'd have with one of those.

Yes I agree what the hell would you use it for? Would you really take it serious off roading? That motor is a flicking beast but why not throw a new diesel motor in it. New diesel technology is amazing . Just dumb

Would be the ultimate "I have more $$ than I know what to do with" rig. It would be fun to park that next to some guy with a hummer that thinks hes all that!

Looking at the pics of that thing it looks like there might be portal axles under there similar to a Unimog.
