Of course you’ve probably seen Mercedes-Benz’s G63 6×6, with its 5.5-liter, twin-turbo V8 and its 561 lb-ft of torque. We covered it on the blog last year. If you haven’t seen Top Gear and Motor Trend flog it around desert and the test track though, you’re in for a bit of a treat.

For times when an already capable 4-wheel-drive G Class just won’t do, Mercedes-Benz has announced that, come October, it will offer this outrageous-looking 6×6 version.

It’s specified in G63 trim, meaning this ├╝ber-off-roader will get its grunt from a twin-turbo, AMG 5.5-liter V8, which will slam 544 horsepower and 560 foot-pounds of torque through a seven-speed, automatic transmission. That’s enough to propel this 8,300-lb. goliath from 0 to 60 in about 6 seconds. Damn.

Other features include portal axles, five locking differentials, cabin-controlled tire pressure adjustment, and 37-inch wheels.

Interested? The price hasn’t been set but expect to pay in the neighborhood of $450,000.
