Depending on the breeze, Miami is the 3rd or 4th most important (read: volume) luxury car market in the U.S. after Newport Beach, Los Angeles and New York. After Miami typically comes Dallas. Which explains why you can barely walk across Alton Road without being exotically mowed down or tantalizingly terrorized by a Lamborghini, Bugatti or Rolls Royce. It’s theater at this point.
But what if you want to drive something so showstopping, awe-inspiring and maniacal, you’d have to rebuild your garage to accommodate its sheer heft? Mercedes AMG has the answer for you: the 2019 G 63 AMG 6X6 “G Wagon”. The 19-foot-long, 7-foot-wide, 8,000 pound SUV / pickup truck has a 536 horsepower twin-turbo engine that turns six giant wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission that simultaneously scrambles the brains of everyone within eyeshot.
The interior is quilted, impossibly luxurious, and smells like a Birkin bag. Picking up your kids “in line” at Miami Country Day couldn’t possibly be more intimidating to other parents. You win. Cramming a kiddie pool in the pickup bed, bikinied girls holding on for dear life, giggling, water spraying onto the MacArthur causeway? They win.
There’s a rub, of course: this 6-wheeled monster truck is only available for European delivery, meaning that acquiring the G 6×6 requires flying to a German-tongued nation, giddily draining your life savings, then shipping it to Port of Miami. We presume you’d like to bundle in a sweeping, continental vacation while you’re at it, so may we suggest – nach der Lieferung – finding a day to visit the rugged G-Class Experience Center in Graz, Austria to put your new 6×6 through its paces, like 100 degree inclines, water submersion, and other death-defying obstacle courses? A G-Wagon factory tour is also included because they hand-make the monster just down the street.
How much is it, you ask? That’s tacky. Sad, really.
