Mercedes-Benz, although one of the most reputed contemporary car manufacturer around the globe, does something insane sometimes. And the G63 6*6 is a perfect example of the insanity level of the German luxury car maker. The G-Class six-wheeled effort was not only crazy, but gave and the idea of an all new genre of automobiles.

But Mercedes-Benz, soon announced that the G63 6*6 will be produced in limited numbers only and will be replaced by the much rational G500 4x4². Unveiled first as the concept at the Geneva Motor Show, the G500 4x4² has finally been launched at the starting price of 226,100 Euros in Germany. Also, there's a possibility that Mercedes has finally halted the production of the G63 6*6.

Although the company hasn't officially announced stopping the beast G63, it's not mentioned in the new price list which includes the G500. The G63 6*6 was priced at 456,900 Euros in the previously issued price lists. The G500 4x4² features a permanent All-wheel drive system that has been sourced from the six-wheel G63 and has portal axles.

The Euro 6 compliant G500 is essentially the four-wheel sibling of the G63 6*6 and is powered by a bi-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine. The engine is capable of developing 422ps of power and a maximum torque of 610 Nm. The power is transferred to all the four wheels, and Mercedes says that the capable off-roader will pick the game "where other vehicles give up."

This is all done via the three lockable differentials and the off-roader reduction in the transfer case. The weight of the off-roading abilities is borne by the set of large 22-inch alloy wheels that are wrapped around the 325/55 R22 section tyres. On the looks front, the SUV looks more or less the other G-Class family cars only with a G500 4x4² badging.

This new SUV is added to all the updated G-Class models and a possible exit of the G63 6x6. The G350d has a boosted output of 245ps & 600 Nm while the G63 AMG produces 571ps PS & 760 Nm. The range topping G65 AMG churns out 612ps & 1000 Nm. A regular G500 version is also on offer with the same engine as the 4x4², albeit without the tuned suspension and other performance upgrades.
