Wealthy criminals, Dubai-based influencers, rappers, and oil sheiks – this is your car.
The Mercedes-Benz AMG G63 6×6 is probably the most pointless vehicle produced today. OK, apart from this one, but the brief is pretty much the same; be an Ostentatious Asshat.
Still, if you’re reading this and you’re seven, a TLCB Elf, or one of the aforementioned Ostentatious Asshats, here at TLCB we cater to all tastes.
Cue w35wvi’s rather excellent recreation of Mercedes-Benz’s most improbable vehicle, which captures the absurdity wonderfully, and – rather appropriately – it’s presented in some kind of over-the-top underground garage too.
Is there a car we hate more than the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG? Ok, maybe the Audi SQ7. Or the Hummer H2. No… no, with think this takes it. We hate it on a cellular level. From its stupid bodykit to its stupid wheels via its stupid interior, we hate it.
That said, this Lego recreation of the G63 AMG by Flickr’s Noah_L is awesome. Recreated with incredible attention to detail, Noah’s stunning model perfectly replicates Mercedes-Benz’s most ludicrous SUV, from its stupid bodykit to its stupid wheels via its stupid interior.
There’s more to see of Noah’s genuinely phenomenal build, including a link to building instructions, at his ‘Mercedes-AMG G63‘ album – join us there where we’ll be simultaneously viewing the images in awe and hating it.
Alongside civilian versions of the Hummer, AMG’s G63 version of the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon is surely one of the most pointless vehicles ever created. Transforming a hardcore off-road workhorse into an immensely powerful on-road racer results in a car that can do neither of those things, and that costs a fortune to do absolutely nothing well at all. In short, the G63 AMG’s only purpose is to be a rolling pile of banknotes proclaiming the wealth of the occupant inside it. Rant over, on to the model…
This impressive recreation of the World’s Most Pointless Car comes from previous bloggee damianple, making his fifth appearance on TLCB. Damian’s G63 AMG is a fully functioning Technic Supercar with some seriously impressive engineering inside. A working V8 engine, all-wheel-suspension, all-wheel-drive, steering and Power Functions remote control are included, amongst a host of other features.
