Only a G-Class can be better than a G-Class. This is the credo followed by the developers with the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6, and they are now stepping up a gear with the G500 4x4². The basic recipe for this overcomer of everything is simple: take the superior all-wheel-drive powertrain including portal axles from the 6x6 - take away one axle - and blend it all with a newly-developed variable chassis and the series-production G-Class body. A large pinch of V8 power with 310 kW / 422 hp, a set of 22-inch 325/55 R 22-sized wheels, carbon-fibre body parts and then just gourmet ingredients from the seductive designo Exclusive range for the interior - and the 5-star menu for all off-road enthusiasts is ready.
A new addition to the extreme G-Class model family: the G63 AMG 6x6 has a model brother in the form of the G500 4x4². The near-series show car is a new highlight in the superlative-rich history of the G-Class and blends all the advantages of the model series. The series-production models of the G-Class supply the unshakeable foundations in the form of the body and ladder-type frame, which compensate for the considerably increased performance of the G500 4x4² without any problem and also without any type of reinforcements. The G63 AMG 6x6 donates an amended version of the ruggedly determined permanent all-wheel-drive powertrain with portal axles. The engine compartment houses a completely new V8 engine with a displacement of four litres, direct injection and biturbocharging. Also new is the chassis with dual spring/damper struts and adjustable damping.
