Six wheels, four seats, zero shame

AMG Mercedes G63 6-wheel truck thing

Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6

Under the hood is AMG’s usual 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8, and total output is rated at 536 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. That’s impressive and all, but do keep in mind that the G63 6×6 weighs in at 8,322 pounds or, you know, the weight of two E-Class sedans.

Have you begun to feel as if your Hummer was too…petite or practical? Too common or understated? You’re rich, so who cares about vehicles making any sense, right?

I will confess that the unrelentingly gratuitous and exhausting video embedded in the article left me feeling as if I had pushed that AMG Mercedes G63 truckster across the sand myself.
