The Brabus B63S-700 6×6 is Technically Illegal in China
For the oddest story to come out of the Shanghai Auto Show, look no further than Mercedes-Benz, which showed up with the Brabus version of the G63 6×6 AMG.
Humorist and automotive writer Doug DeMuro has the money to buy fancy cars, such as a Ferrari and a Range Rover, but he won’t spend the cash to buy a new Mercedes-Benz G-Class. Why would he when a 1987 240GD cabriolet is so close to being the same vehicle?
It may not be as crazy as the G63 6X6, but the 2016 Mercedes-AMG G65 is still bonkers. It’s a twin-turbo 12-cylinder, four-wheel-drive SUV that looks like a giant safe. You can get one of your own and go just as nuts for a starting price of $217,900.
This Russian G63 knockoff is called a Makar, and it is perhaps the most ridiculous automobile on the planet, powered by vodka and the tears of children.
