New Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 4x4 with Portal Axles

It seems that the gear heads over at Mercedes-Benz and AMG have built a new off-road beast geared for the super wealthy who can afford to strut their high dollar off-road prowess on both the trail or the country club. You might remember the awesome Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6 they built a few years back which pretty much blew everyone’s mind and that wasn’t just because of the staggeringly high price tag, but the absolute awesomeness of such a vehicle even being a reality. Well they’ve done it again and this time, they’ve built a G-wagon with a set of portal axles that is sure to make it the perfect luxury wheeler that more money than sense can buy.

Check out the images we obtained from our sister publication, Truck Trend, of this awesome new Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 4x4 that sports a lot more ground clearance than the previous four-wheeled G-wagons did. You pretty much don’t have to worry about getting hung up on any rocks with this sauerkraut rig.

It seems to be built to conquer any terrain in it’s path and upon closer inspection, it looks like it might share the same portal axles, coil sprung radius arm suspension and Ohlins remote reservoir shocks as it’s 6x6 bigger brother.

As we previously stated with the 6x6, this extreme version of the G-wagon will probably not be cheap. In fact, it’s expected to start for a measly $150,000 but for that price you get one of, if not the most capable luxury SUV in the world.
