Set to cost $1,335,000 (€986,625 / £826,935), the tank-like trucks will be able will be able to tackle rugged terrain as well as the occasional burst of fire from an AK-47 or an M-16. Should your enemies really despise you, you'll be glad to know the model can handle everything up to a 7.62x63mm (.30-06) round.

The Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6 is motorized with an AMG V8 bi-turbo 5.5-liter engine rated at 544 HP (400 kW) and 758 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque, linked to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic gearbox. The off-roader is 5.87-meter long and 2.10-meter wide, with an almost 2.30-meter ground clearance and huge 37-inch tires.

With a curb weight of 3,850 kg (8,487 lbs), the 6x6 G63 AMG is without any doubt one of the most capable off-roaders ever made.

The company recently stopped accepting pre-orders and it remains unclear if anyone was willing to pony up a 75% deposit - $1,001,250 (€738,985 / £620,200) - for the chance to have an armored G63 AMG 6x6 delivered to them late next year.
