As if the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 wasn’t already a very special vehicle, the tuners from Carlsson decided there’s room for improvement and they have developed an upgrade package for the six-wheeled off-roader. Work started on the V8 5.5-liter twin-turbo engine which now benefits from a CK63 performance package that has lifted output by 106 PS (78 kW) and 140 Nm (103 lb-ft) to no less than 650 PS (478 kW) and 900 Nm of torque.
Carlsson didn’t perform any modifications on the car’s exterior but they restyled the interior cabin by using a combination of leather and Alcantara for the upholstery. We also notice the addition of carbon fiber and wood trims together with alloy pedals, aluminum door-lock pins, illuminated door sill plates and bespoke floor mats made from sheepskin or suede.
As if the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 wasn’t already a beast, the tuners from Mansory decided there’s room for more opulence which is why they came up with this aftermarket package. On the outside there’s a new body kit as well as different headlights while a few of the new parts are made from carbon fiber. We don’t have pics of the interior but Mansory says they can customize the cabin with various wood trims, Alcantara, leather as well as carbon fiber inserts.
The beating heart of this G63 AMG 6×6 is the same twin-turbo V8 5.5-liter engine however it has received uprated pistons, bearings, connecting rods, exhaust system, crankshaft and cylinder heads. As a result of these tweaks, output of the motor was increased from the standard 544 PS and 758 Nm to a whopping 840 PS and 1,000 Nm, with the latter being electronically-capped.
As if the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 wasn’t already way too expensive, the German marque has decided that for the 2015 model year it would be best to increase the vehicle’s price tag by approximately 5,900 euros. It will go on sale starting September 1 and those who are interested in getting the six-wheel behemoth should know the car now costs 456,900 euros. The price bump is partially justified by the extended list of standard goodies which now includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated windscreen as well as folded and heated exterior mirrors.
Underneath the hood resides a 5.5-liter V8 twin-turbo engine generating 544 PS and an impressive maximum torque of 758 Nm which are sent to all three axles with help from a 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission. Just like before, Mercedes-Benz will only make around 20 to 30 cars each year.
Fans of Jurassic Park and the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 can rejoice as the vehicle will be featured in next year’s Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the well-known movie franchise. Some of may remember this is not the first time a Mercedes-Benz is featured in Jurassic Park movie as an M-Class starred in The Lost World, while several Unimogs were also present in other JP movies. The model of choice for the fourth movie is the six-wheeled variant of the G63 AMG which has a starting price in Germany of no less than 451,010 euros.
The vehicle is being produced in limited quantities of about 20 to 30 cars per year and each weigh 3,850 kg, with power coming from a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 engine delivering 544 PS. The vehicle in this attached photo was heading to Hawaii at a film location. Jurassic World will come out on June 12, 2015.
Perhaps one of the most spectacular products developed by Brabus, the B63S is based on the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6. The off-roader has been fitted with a redesigned front spoiler, carbon fiber wheel arches and a hood scoop made from the same lightweight material. Other highlights worth mentioning include the LED daytime running lights, underbody protection and tinted xenon headlights. On the inside we notice a bright red leather upholstery, a different headliner and an Alcantara trim. Brabus has also added alloy pedals and illuminated sill plates.
Power of the Brabus B63S comes from a massive V8 5.5-liter twin-turbo engine that has received a performance kit which has lifted output to an amazing 700 HP and 960 Nm of torque, representing an increase of 156 HP and 200 Nm compared to the standard G63 AMG 6×6. Thanks to this power hike, the vehicle needs only 7.4 seconds to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) and it will keep on accelerating until it reaches an electronically-capped top speed of 100 mph (160 km/h).
