This one alone makes up for all those confined to city streets.
This is a video that makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. There's nothing better than seeing a car being used for the exact reason it was created, and that's definitely the case for this Mercedes-AMG G63. These things are rather expensive, with second hand versions still fetching over $100,000, which means most owners buy them to pose with and look impressive dropping the kids off at their private school. It seems that in the Ukraine, this car is seen as an off-road vehicle, which is what it must be used for.
The G-wagon is actually too powerful, and in the video it looks to be revving quite high while tackling the obstacle course, possibly not being used in low range.
The obstacle course is pretty normal as far as these things go, but the mechanical sympathy shown to the G-wagon is not. The owner clearly has loads of spare cash for when things break, and watching this video from Rally Fun, things will certainly break. The guy has obviously done this before seeing as the car sports steel wheels with bigger profile tires and the bumpers are aftermarket with a front winch. While huge power isn't needed for this kind of thing thanks to low range transfer cases and the like, it must still be fun killing a course with a car that combines an old school ladder frame chassis with a 5.5-liter, 563 horsepower twin turbocharged V8 that produces a hill-flattening 560 lb-ft of torque.
