Brabus G63 AMG 6x6 Surfs Sand Dunes in Chile – Photo Gallery

This year's edition of the Dakar Rally saw hotly contested action over more than 9,000 km (5,590 miles) through Argentina, Chile and Bolivia. MINI's rallying crew won their 4th title, but we know of a Mercedes-Benz that's just as good at kicking up a sand storm.

That's right, this is the ultra-rare, ultra-powerful G63 AMG 6x6 that's been tuned by Brabus and produces a thumping 700 horsepower.

Thanks to Mercedes-Benz Kaufmann Chile, we can show you the sand storm that was kicked up in Ritoque, Chile by this unique machine. There must be something about this monster that encourages you to play in the sand. Dan Bilzerian did it with his white model and Top Gear's Richard Hammond tried it in Saudi Arabia.

We feel obliged to remind you guys again that using electronic witchcraft, Brabus's B63S package increased the output for the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 monster from 544 hp to 700 hp. 940 Nm of torque is also useful for when you want to move a tank like this.

Believe it or not, but this SUV also has gold under the bonnet. Brabus has been making its heat reflectors from the precious metal for many years. They also added larger turbos, a high-performance catalyst downpipe, bigger mufflers and an ECU remap.

Thanks to the magic of the internet, we've been able to track down this particular Brabus G63 AMG 6x6 and found out it's the same one we showed you a week ago, where it was playing in through some tunnels with a Ferrari 458 Italia. We can't find the owner yet, but it appears the G-Monster is being serviced a second time at Jose Miguel Aranda's shop. It's been in the country for at least 9 months now, so it's one of the first Brabus-tuned examples ever made.
