Ever had a bad day? Sure you have, everyone does once in a while. However, a Chinese Mansory owner has had one of the worst days ever. The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 he was driving was involved in a car accident. At a glance, the impact was not severe, and the local dealer could have fixed things back to factory condition.
However, his car was engulfed in flames, and burned to the ground. The cause of the fire is unknown at the moment, but it might be related to a fuel leak that appeared after the initial impact.

As Car News China reports, the G63 AMG 6x6 had crashed into a Hyundai Santa Fe, and the pick-up truck hit the South Korean SUV’s front-left wheel with its right side.

The same news outlet claims this was the only Mansory 6x6 in China, which made the owner’s tragedy even worse. However, Chinese fans of the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG can still rejoice, as the country still has two Brabus-tuned models on its streets.

The Mansory kit for the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 raised output to 840 HP and peak torque to 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft). The stock version of the G63 AMG 6x6 provided 544 HP and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft). So the Chinese driver had serious horsepower under his right foot, but it has now disappeared without any useable remains.

Mercedes-Benz’s G63 AMG 6x6 was built in limited numbers, and only 100 cars were ever made. Tuners like Brabus and Mansory developed more powerful variants, and raised prices for this exclusive pick-up truck.

In the case of Mansory, along with an impressive output, the tuning specialists also employed carbon fiber parts, as well as design elements. For example, the car received a new front bumper, a set of additional lights, a new front grille, and other changes.

On the interior, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 was enhanced with leather and Alcantara, as well as carbon fiber trim. In the case of the example in the photo gallery, it’s all gone in flames.
