Not a typical super car but a beautiful one none the less…Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6

I see a lot of questions asking why this cost so much. I had posted this a while ago in another Gwagon thread where someone couldn’t understand why G wagons cost so much more then say a jeep. Here it is again:
Sure! The first part would be exclusivity and limited production. When there’s less of something you pay a premium. The G wagon is assembled at the Magna Steyr plant in Graz,and independent factory that’s partnered with Mercedes for the last 40 years. The annual production of the G wagon is between 4,000- and 6,000 units.. And of that small number each year less than 10% of those are AMG versions. Usually less than 500 produced annually. To give a comparison since 2007 over a MILLION Jeep wranglers have been built. The AMG versions get a hand built motor that is entirely built by the same person in the factory. They are high Horsepower output motors that usually produce between 460- and 612 HP using premium materials (carbon fiber and forged internal parts) In the production process it’s built with an old process where they use heavy gauge steel and will actually dip the entire vehicle in a special coating that helps keep the interior dry from leaks when fording water. It also features 3 electronic locking differentials which make the G wagon,along with its steel on body frame one of the most capable off road vehicles in the world. You also figure into the price parts that reach Mercedes standards,exclusive materials on the interior like leathers and glass and the price quickly adds up. Because of thr limited production it’s also one of the reasons used Mercedes G wagons do so well on the secondary market. It’s unusual to find even a 10 or 12 year old model for less than half of what it originally sold for.

Now addressing this 6X6… Take a car that’s already extremely rare,completely re-engineer the chassis,reinforce parts that are already overly engineered, add amazing suspension,tires that can have their pressure changed within seconds to adjust to varying road and off road conditions,add a dozen other useful toys and market it to the world wealthiest enthusiast and you have something very special.
Some would say “meh my lifted jeep can go anywhere that thing could go” Well there may be some truth to that,but to those people I would say you don’t understand what the G wagon is about and please take your Jeep where you want and leave the G to others who truly want a unique experience.
