Latvian tuner and manufacturer of armored vehicles Dartz
has come across what’s possibly the only SUV tougher and more extreme than its own line of Prombron monsters, the new Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6
Rather than trying to outmatch the tough-as-nails AMG off-roader, Dartz has imagined its own, personalized version, which we’re sure the company will be happy to build for anyone willing to front up the cash.
Called the Sahara G-eopard, Dartz’ version of the G63 AMG 6x6 is even longer than the original, and much more lavish.
The limo-like rear is entered via suicide rear doors, and once inside passengers will find niceties such as a climate system that works while the engine is turned off, real gold and silver trim, a 3D television, and a sound system from Bang & Olufsen.
If the owner chooses, he or she can even specify diamond-studded trim pieces and 24-inch alloy wheels coated in gold. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also the option of a portable smoking room with gold-plated Shisha pipes
--perfect for the end of any long desert jaunts.
No changes for the powertrain have been mentioned, so expect the G63 AMG 6x6’s stock turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8, rated at 544 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque, to be fitted. Of course, the G63 AMG 6x6 also brings to the table six drive wheels, a low-range ratio, five differential locks, portal axles, and 18.1 inches of ground clearance.
