When Mercedes-Benz unveiled the G63 AMG 6×6 to the world last year, it was met with great enthusiasm from the automotive world. Based on an already successful and outstanding SUV, the Mercedes-Benz 6×6 not only had added power, but also another rear axle. With these six wheels, Mercedes gave the world an SUV that was unfamiliar and exciting.
Tuning company Mansory noted the 6×6’s popularity and capabilities and decided they could create something even more special from the SUV. Using their upgrades for the G63 G65 and newly developed pieces, Mansory has turned the 6×6 into a visual and engineering spectacle known as the Mansory 6×6, according to a press release issued today.
Mansory tuned the 544 hp twin-turbo V8 engine up to 828 hp and an electronically-limited 737 lb-ft of torque. These numbers are possible thanks to a reworked V8 engine that has pistons, connecting rods, big end bearings, crankshaft, cylinder head and many other parts, according to the press release.
Accompanying these engine upgrades are a number of visual modifications true to the Mansory name. New headlights, grille, hood and more give the 6×6’s front-end a definitive “Mansory” look. A large number of carbon fiber components are featured on the SUV’s exterior, which uses carbon fiber that was based in their in-house autoclaves.

Inside, the Mansory 6×6 uses carbon fiber components as well. Their in-house upholstery shop implemented a carbon design with contrasting elements that are cohesive with the SUV’s exterior.
The price has yet to have been announced, as well as an idea of how many Mansory 6x6s will be created. Stay with us for information as it is released.
