Mansory Mercedes-AMG G63 6X6 destroyed by fire after fender-bender with Old Hyundai Santa Fe
The Mercedes-AMG G63 6X6 is a tank built to withstand anything thrown at it. Using the Mercedes Benz G-Class as a platform, military use is what it is designed for. It can easily withstand the deserts of the Middle East and drive in almost two and half feet of water.
An unlucky owner in China seems to have found the one vulnerability it seemingly cannot overcome, the Hyundai Santa Fe. This particular Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6 is not just any G63 6×6, it is one that has been extensively massaged by German luxury tuner, Mansory.
We already know that rear-engined supercars, primarily of the Italian variety are known to catch fire, particularly when heavy-revving is involved. However, there was no such activity with this 6×6 beast. According to witnesses, the AMG G63 6×6 just bumped into an older Hyundai Santa Fe and ‘poof’.
Fortunately, nobody was injured in the accident except for the Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6. Images posted by CarNewsChina reveal that the vehicles’s right side, rear-end, and interior are completely destroyed. The only place that this thing is going to is to the scrap yard.
The stock, if you can call it that, Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6 puts out 536 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. Mansory’s tuning package for the G63 6×6 consists of additional carbon fiber components, a redesigned exhaust system, and an upgraded interior. Under the hood, the engine is heavily massaged, squeezing out an additional 292 horsepower from the 5.5-liter twin turbo engine. The end result is a massive 828 horsepower and an electronically limited 738 pound-feet of torque.
Despite all of the preparation and work that went into the Mansory Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6, it still was sufficient to withstand an attack from a Hyundai Santa Fe.
