One of the coolest cars in existence in today’s world is the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6, which is basically a standard Mercedes-Benz G-Class with a pickup bed, a lifted suspension and 6-wheel drive. Unfortunately, it costs something like $1 million, which (in case you didn’t know) is a lot of money for an automobile. See the 2008 Hummer H2 models for sale near you
Fortunately, I’ve found you a budget-priced alternative. This 2008 Hummer H2 is currently for sale on Autotrader — and while it’s not a pickup, it does have six wheels. I have no idea if it has active 6-wheel drive, or if only the rear wheels are powered, or if only four of the wheels are powered, but the point is that it looks the part. More importantly, it’s available for a fraction of the price of a 6×6 G-Wagen: just $66,995, with a mere 15,900 miles on the odometer, from a Chicago dealer called Greater Chicago Motors.
So why does this H2 have six wheels? As you might expect, it was used as a limousine by a limo rental company — and it has the interior to show for it, with neon lighting, a huge sound system, a bar, neon lights and a partition separating the passengers from the driver. Presumably, it also turns an enormous amount of heads, since it’s not every day — or any day — you see a vehicle going past with six wheels.
I suspect it wouldn’t be too hard to make this H2 into something ultra-cool — ripping out the generic limo stuff in back and putting in some sort of living room back there, complete with a bed, giving you the ultimate off-roading vehicle. Assuming, of course, that all six wheels are powered. And assuming you find a trail large enough to accommodate this beast. Find a 2008 Hummer H2 for sale
