We can definitely see why you would want to buy a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6, but ten? You didn't hear it from us, but somebody might be building a real-life Jurassic Park, and it's located in South Africa.
There's something about this car that makes people want to have it, and it clearly isn't its discreet presence. No further than two days ago, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton was considering buying one after a close encounter, but he might be a bit biased. He is, after all, under contract with the MERCEDES-AMG PETRONAS Formula One team...
But Lewis Hamilton and his marketing contracts aside, all but one of the autoevolution team members would like one, so that makes for a very convincing percent. And we can't all be short, frustrated men, as the owners of such large vehicles usually get labeled.
Our friends down in RSA (Republic of South Africa) gave us a tip about a delivery of no less than ten such monsters. According to our source (zero2turbo), an undisclosed number out of these ten vehicles are the even more insane Brabus version, with a price tag to match.
The real bombshell is that all ten of these might have been ordered by the same person. Earlier, we were asking why would anyone want ten Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6, but the real question is this: how CAN any single person get his hands on so many limited edition vehicles?
Without any disrespect towards our source, we highly doubt it. Mercedes-Benz ceased production earlier this year after building about 100 units, and with so many interested parties in the middle east (and elsewhere), we'd be surprised if 10% of them all went to RSA. Not to mention to one single person.
But we have to give the benefit of the doubt and consider the story might be true. In which case, there are two possible explanations: the man wants to sell them for a profit later one (smart guy, but also another reason why we don't think Mercedes-Benz would ever sell so many to one man) or he's gearing up for war. In this case, let's hope it's the former.
