2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG [w/video]

The Marauder Of The Countryside Is Angry There are some drive tests where we would love to have automated voice and sound transcription technology to be able to capture for you the thrills in real time. Don't let this plain ol' four-wheeled box fool you; the new Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG is so full of character it's fit to burst. You would not be chastised for staring at the exterior of the G63 and noticing nothing different from the 2012 Geländewagen. The changes outside are just a few and deliberately so; redesigning this icon is just as sensitive an issue as redesigning a Porsche... Read More

    1402409640

    The creations that come from Dartz Motorz almost defy explanation. The company is known for modifying SUVs with so much over-the-top luxury that they seem unreal. For example, its last project was a Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6 with gold wheels and a portable smoking room. The company's latest foray into automotive insanity is another take on the G63 6x6 called ...

    Hey, Mercedes-Benz. I love you guys. Seriously. I recently had a blast driving your hot little CLA45 AMG for a week, but now I'm looking for something... bigger. Something a little more, shall we say, robust. Something I can use to really explore the urban Detroit landscape. And lo, according to your Facebook page, it appears you've brought a G63 AMG 6x6 ...

    Much like the Humvees that participated in last month's Head 2 Head, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG and G63 AMG 6x6 in the latest installment are some of the toughest off-road vehicles money can buy. And you'll need a lot of money to buy the 6X6 - at least $500,000. We're not sure why Mercedes-Benz decided to improve the Geländewagen's already fabled ...

If you answered a 700-horsepower Mercedes-Benz G-Class, you're in the same boat as Brabus, which brought just such a beast to the Dubai International Motor Show this week.

    Unstoppable. That's what comes to mind when images of the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 cross our screen, as it's usually annihilating some barren stretch of desert. In reality, though, the über-G-Wagen isn't all that unstoppable - it may have six-wheel drive, but it's a car, more or less like any other. That's why Texas Armoring has essentially made ...

    In the midst of the launch for one of its most important new cars, the 2014 CLA-Class, Mercedes-Benz has decided to set a price for one of its most ridiculous – and ridiculously awesome – products of all time, the G63 AMG 6x6. How much exactly will it cost to claim ownership to the baddest G-Class ever made? A measly 379,000 euros (*not ...

    We didn't think things could get any more bonkers when Mercedes-Benz released the G63 AMG 6x6. 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 ...

    Vehicle performance tests are serious business, with reputations made or broken by things like braking distance, top speed, and lateral g-forces. King of the metrics, though, is the 0-60 run, which for unknown reasons has become the benchmark for what truly makes a car a performance machine. Now, Chris Harris from Drive has turned the whole idea behind ...

    So you didn't really think Dartz Motorz was going to let the limited-production, 544-horsepower Mercedes 6x6 G63 AMG go without a challenge, did you? Picking up the gauntlet as only Dartz can, the Russian dream-makers have come up with the Sahara G-eopard, supposedly a special request from a buyer to make one of the 'standard' six-wheelers "more opulent ...

    Mercedes-Benz has finally dropped full details on its insane G63 AMG 6x6. The machine puts 544 horsepower to all six wheels thanks to a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8. A seven-speed gearbox shuttles power to the ground via three sets of portal axles, which helps give this machine a full 15.75 inches of ground clearance. By comparison, the standard G63 AMG ...

    We are fully confident in saying that this will be the most amazing thing you see all day. First of all, it's a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen – in AMG spec, no less. And it's being shown off in high-definition video glory, blasting through the desert, jumping over sand dunes, and generally being awesome. But here's the kicker: It has six wheels. Three ...

    When you're the boss, parking is never a problem on the jobsite. Not even if someone has taken your reserved spot. Not even if they've taken your spot with, um, the office. Because the boss drives a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG and uses at least part of his V8's 560 pound-feet of torque to subtly – OK, not so subtly – create a space where the office ...

As with the G55, we expect the vehicle's reputation to far outshine its sales, but with an exponentially improved interior, 544 horsepower, 560 pound-feet and better gas mileage than its less powerful predecessor, we're talking about a whole lot ...

A 5.5-liter AMG-built twin-turbo V8 engine lurks behind the updated face, complete with a heady 544 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque.
