Demand for giant Mercedes strong as it enters second year of production.
It seems that as well as being completely mental, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 is also in high demand as the carmaker has just announced pricing for the 2015 model year. The ultra-exclusive giant offroader will continue into its second year of production, with buyers asked to fork out an additional 5,900 Euros for the privilege. The first batch of 6x6s went for 451,010 Euros, but for 2015 the sticker price is set at 456,900 Euros. Deliveries will commence on September 1.
So what does almost half-a-million Euros get you? The six-wheeled G-Class comes with a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 rated at 544 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to all six wheels via a 7G-Tronic automatic transmission. That mirrors the 2014 model year, however standard equipment has been extended to include a heated windscreen, folded & heated exterior mirrors and an auto-dimming rear view mirror. As per the previous model, the 2015 G63 AMG 6x6 will be limited to just 20-30 units.
