Most people's reactions to the mighty Mercedes-Benz 6 63 AMG 6x6 was "yes please!", right up until the moment when the learned what the thing costs. Money is not a problem if you're a sheik from Dubai and you have oil gushing out in your back yard. But what if you're the sheik's cousin twice removed and your all you have in your back yard is a couple of camels?
Romania's budget brand Dacia might have the answer. Say hello to the Dastruck, a Dacia Duster 6x6… truck. It's just like the Mercedes-Benz version, only cheaper. So far, there are no pans for mass production, but as a display piece, this is a pretty interesting ride.

As far as we gather, this awesome machine is a display piece built to show off and to thank the loyal Dacia fans. Different reports claim that both the 1.5 dCi and a 1.2 TCe are under the bonnet, but that's kind of irrelevant since the nobody has seen the 6x6 move.

The interesting thing here is that the Dacia Duster is named after an old Aro model, a 4x4 also made in Romania. The company exported many of its products to the middle east and even made a few 6x6 versions for military applications. Way to come full circle Dacia!

The Duster has been an absolutely huge success for Dacia and its parent company Renault. Based on an older-generation Clio platform, this budget crossover has been introduced in many markets across the world, including India, Russia and Brazil. In April, the company announced Duster number 1,000,000 had been made, just four years after launch.
