24. Mercedes G-Class G63 AMG 6X6
The Mercedes G-Class is one of the longest-running models in the car world. First emerging in 1979 as a primarily military off-road SUV and truck, it’s still on the market today with the same basic design. During the course of almost 40 years, it survived many modifications and redesigns, but never changed its distinctive appearance and basic mechanical layout. Over the years, the G-Class evolved from a pure military truck without any luxury items to an overpriced, premium full-size SUV with a powerful engine, 20-inch chrome wheels, and leather in the interior.
Mercedes created one monster of a truck by power and torque ratings, and a monster with its sticker price too. Under the hood is the 5.5-liter twin turbo engine with 540 hp, which delivers power to all six wheels through a specially-built automatic transmission unit.
Inside the truck, it’s all about luxury with the finest materials and comforts. This 6×6 may not be so capable in the wild since it is such a heavy truck, but it looks like it can tackle the sand dunes well. And, of course, there is the matter of price. When it was new, this G63 had a sticker price of $450,000. Yet if you can find one today, expect to pay close to one million dollars for it.
