Complete with a gold paint job.
There is no doubt that the US has a long-standing love affair with trucks, especially modified ones, but the international scene has delivered some creations American builders would never have dreamed of. One such creation is the internet-famous Mercedes-AMG G63 that was modified to roll on six wheels. This behemoth perfectly combines excess and power in a spectacularly vulgar package, but what if you don't have the bucks for a G Wagon? Enter the Mercedes-Benz X-Class 6x6. The X-Class was deemedan international failure, but that hasn't stopped someone from turning one into a six-wheeled freak. The car was recently sold by Dutch car auctioning site Classic Youngtimers for an undisclosed amount of money.
This Mercedes-Benz truck started out life as a humble X 350d with a brown paint color, a black interior and a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 that develops 254 horsepower. The builders of this car, with the help of Carlex Design, then built a custom subframe, added an extra axle, lifted the truck by a considerable four inches and threw a bunch of styling bits at it. Off-road tires and flared wheel arches give this X-Class a menacing look, and the AMG GTR grille is a bold move. This truck is actually quite practical and features an extended detachable pick-up bed. On the inside, the black leather upholstery remains, but just in case you forget, the builders have stuck a 6 Wheeler badge on the dashboard.
Having extended the length of the truck, and adding an extra axle couldn't have done wonders for performance levels, but surprisingly, the turbodiesel V6 has been left completely stock, which means that this 6x6 won't be storming up any Saudi sand dunes any time soon. Finished in a unique gold paint job, this one-of-a-kind Mercedes truck is sure to turn heads wherever it goes.
