Born vehicle crossing for military purposes, the Mercedes G-Class adds a nice touch of exclusivity to its image with 6 wheels version. Of course declined around a AMG motorization. A machine was also born for military purposes before becoming the most expensive Mercedes range…
Born of a project for the Australian Army, the G-Class today shines a 6-wheel drive variant. And if it obtains the V8 motorization with G63 AMG (544 hp and 760 Nm), it focuses primarily on off-road capabilities.
A great big V8 yes, but also a transmission with a short range, 5 locking differential and a system for inflating/ deflating the tires shipped. What to transform the animal into terror of the desert.
The figures speak also, but not from 0 to 100 km/h maximum speed: ground clearance of 460 mm (210 mm for normal G), ventral angle of 22°, angle of attack of 30%, fording depth 1000 mm, capacity to assemble slopes at 100%. The inflation device of tires can get their pressure of 0.5 bar to 1.8 bar in just 20 seconds without stopping. Which helps the engine to 3850 kg to circulate in sand without encumbers.
Adventurer, this G63 AMG is also a limousine with places postpones equipped with two individual seats, with electrical regulations, heated and ventilated. The interior is dressed by Designo personalization service: saddlery leather, alcantara headliner … The body will not ship materials to the DIY center point, and dresses made of bamboo.
