It is said that Necessity is the mother of invention. However, sometimes people make things just for the sake of it. The best example can be taken as 6×6 SUVs. When some guys had enough of their regular 4×4 stuff, they decided it’s time for an upgrade. In comes the 6×6 SUVs for road use, a concept which was earlier reserved for trucks and army vehicles. However, one thing is for sure that these 6×6 macho machines look dope. Now India does not have any 6×6 vehicle on sale but we do have some very unique specimen of the 6×6 fraternity. Let’s take a tour and check out 4 different 6×6 SUVs of India.
Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 Brabus
What’s a better way to start this list than having the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 as the first item. This one here in a black grey paint job is much more special than the average Merc G Wagon 6×6. It has been specially tuned by Brabus and has been turned into a more hardcore machine. If it already was a beast before, it now is a Godzilla. Its engine produces power in excess of 700 Bhp and the SUV easily towers over other SUVs easily. The G63 AMG 6×6 is considered to be one of the meanest SUVs across the world and this one sets the bar further high up, being modified by Brabus. Truly a beast this one is.
Jeep ‘Dark Horse’ 6×6
Next up is a modified version of the Mahindra Thar, which has been given a wild makeover and converted into a 6×6 SUV. As seen in the video, it is running at quite high speeds without much problem. It has been fitted with six massive off-road spec tires. The wheelbase has been increased and the Jeep now features a loading bay, making it a proper 6X6 pickup truck. It combines the typical Jeep looks with the bruteness of a 6×6 vehicle and the end result is mesmerising to say the least.
Mahindra Thar ‘Movie Star’ 6×6
If you are confused by the name we have given to this vehicle, it is because it was first seen in a movie. This movie was called Naa Peru Surya Na Illu India and had Allu Arjun in lead role. The movie was a hit and so was this Thar, which was probably the first time many were seeing a 6×6 Mahindra Thar. As seen in the video above, it looks simply humongous and turns heads like no other vehicle probably can. The reaction of people in the video is quite hilarious, which is probably justifiable when something like this passes you on the road.
The ‘Red Menace’ 6×6
This one here has been modified pretty neatly and carries over the look nicely. The gorgeous rims and big fat tires add to its brute appeal while the red paint job gives it a distinct look. It is quite practical too since it features proper doors and seats. The two added wheels at the rear mean increased wheelbase and hence a separate loading area. The blacked out custom fenders further add to its appeal and so does the custom front bumper. The interiors of this SUV have also been modified and now sport a black and red theme.
