Default Re: 6x6 Merc G63 AMGs spotted heading to the Middle East

Recently Autocar UK testdrove the G63 6x6 in Dubai,

A few pointers from the review;

- The Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6 is tipped to cost 350,000, making it the second most expensive Mercedes road car
- It will be produced on a limited basis at Mercedes-Benz’s Austrian partner Magna Steyr’s operation in Graz
- The 6x6 has six driven wheels, low range gearing, five diff locks and a tyre control system
- The rear wheel arches house compressor tanks for the tyre inflation system
- Mercedes' 7G tranmission is fitted as standard
- Torque is nominally split 30:40:30
- The wheels measure 37in in diameter and are 12.5in wide
- The differential locks offer 100 per cent lock-up of all six wheels
- The G63 AMG 6x6 is 1106mm longer, 225mm wider and 272mm higher than the standard G63 AMG
- Fuel economy is likely to be in the region of 15mpg and production cars will have two fuel tanks

Front left tire appears to be punctured, but still so what it still has 5 more 'active' working tires.

Sad & embarrassing sight indeed as the 6x6 AMG is supposedly one of the best off road cars in the world

A more sensible alternative to the 6x6.

Source - Carscoop

Quote:

If a nearly 6-meter long body and six wheels were too much of a stretch for you, Mercedes is proposing a more sensible version of its G63 AMG 6x6 in the form of the G500 4x4.

It will debut in near production form at the Geneva Motor Show in March, with the Germans stating that, "whether and when the decision on series production of the G 500 4x4 will be made depends on the reaction which the near-series show car receives".

The hardcore G-Class model takes the five-door body of the regular G500 adding the all-wheel-drive system with portal axles from the 6x6 and surprise, surprise, the 4.0-liter bi-turbocharged V8 from the AMG GT and C63 AMG sports models into the mix (it was previously believed that Mercedes would use a 5.5-liter turbo'd V8).

For this application, the direct-injection V8 engine produces 422PS (416hp) and is connected to a seven-speed 7G-tronic automatic gearbox with a separate transfer case and high / low ratio gearing. The SUV is equipped with three mechanical differential locks that can be selected by the driver.

Also new are the dual strut spring and adjustable damper units, with the driver being able to choose between Comfort and Sport modes through a button on the center console. According to Mercedes, "one spring/damper strut works conventionally with set damper characteristics," while "the second spring strut has electronically controlled adjustable damping, which thus varies the entire damping behavior depending on the current driving situation".

Thanks to the use of the special portal axles in which the axle tube is above the center of the wheel hub, the ground clearance on the G500 4x4 rises to an amazing 450mm (17.7 in) compared to the regular model's 210mm (8.3 in), and the driving or fording depth to 1 meter (39.4 inches).

Elsewhere on the chassis, both the front and rear tracks have been increased by 299mm (11.8 in).

Riding on new 22-inch rims wrapped in 325/55 rubber or optionally, special off-road 18-inch beadlock wheels, the G500 4x4 boasts an improved approach angle of 52 degrees and departure angle of 54 degrees.

Visually, and besides the massive wheels and increased ride height, the 4x4 gets extra wide and partially painted flared fenders on all four corners, integral LED light strips above the windscreen, plus the front bumper of the AMG models.

Inside, Mercedes added the designo Exclusive package that dresses the seat bolsters and head restraints, the dashboard, center console and armrests in leather with white contrasting topstitching, while the seat surfaces, door panels and headliner are covered in DINAMICA microfiber.
