Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

The last of the mighty Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6s are being built this month, and if your order isn't in already you're just gonna have to wait 'til they start showing up on eBay. But that doesn't mean they're done with extreme off-roaders... on the contrary, Mercedes might just be getting warmed up.

Last week Des Sellmeijer over at GTSpirit reported that the six-wheeled G-Wagens were "sold out." Now Mercedes has confirmed it officially; the "last G63 6x6 was ordered in January and will be built in February." The company has never shared official sales figures for the 6x6... but I cant wait to hear your speculation on how many of them there are.

We'd long suspected the 6x6 was the result of "bring your kid to work day" at one of Mercedes' design shops, but with the G500 4x4² swooping in to fill the void immediately I'm starting to think these guys are actually dedicated to building batshit off-roaders. Which, I mean, ...awesome.

Must admit I wasn't too impressed with the regular G63 when its tarmac tires couldn't keep the car steady on Class-IV roads or wet grass. But with real off-road wheels and one hell of a suspension setup, the 4x4² addresses that point of contention and looks like it could be the most off-road capable production car out there right now.
