Richard Hammond Takes the Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6 to the Dunes of Dubai

The Mercedes G-Wagon is incredibly popular with the rich and famous and you’re likely to see one every 5 seconds when living in high-end neighborhoods. However, the G-Wagon I’m bringing you today is definitely not your ordinary vehicle and it’s very unlikely that you’ve ever seen one in person. I’m talking about the G63 AMG 6×6, and its that last part that makes this particular vehicle so special. That’s because it has six wheels, and all of them can put the power down to the ground. Speaking of power, there’s more than enough on hand thanks to the 5.5L bi-turbo V8 that’s estimated to produce around 550hp and 560lb-ft of torque.

This epic looking rig was featured on an episode of Top Gear, the good one with Clarkson, Hammond, and May, and this time it was Hammond that was the lucky one that got to do the review. And considering the 6×6 has a staggering price tag over $500,000, it seemed only fitting that the Hamster take it out to what might be the wealthiest city in the world, Dubai. Watch as he puts it to the test in a wide variety of terrain.
