Mercedes Gelandewagen 6×6 is Definition of Awesomely Poor Taste

What with the third recession to hit Britain in three years and another one just around the bend, the world clearly needs this.  No, it’s not some freakish monster built by a hermit in the desert as a special gift to a Bond villain.  It is an actual vehicle actually built by Mercedes and their actual engineers, and custom made just for you.  And by “you,” I mean You, The Emirati Oil Sheikh.

Of course it’s got an engine to move it through the air (it is in the air in that picture, is it not?), and that engine comes straight out of the G63 AMG.

For those not in the know, the G63 AMG is that car you see in all the rap videos.

It’s got a twin-turbocharged 5.5 liter V8 with 536 horsepower.  Which should be enough, as it weighs 8,300 pounds, or the same as a house.  Even still, it goes from zero to 60 MPH in six seconds, which is faster than most family sedans.

And if you’re asking about the price, you clearly can’t afford it.  But since you’re asking, it should start at around $400,000.  Watch the video below to see the real insanity.
