When a Mercedes-AMG G63 6x6 usually shows up on social media, we get to see the behemoth being paraded on the tarmac, with no other aim than to grab attention. However, when we come across exceptions, these are as entertaining as possible and we're here to bring you just that.
This time of the year, the weather in the Italian Alps is simply ideal for a machine such as Mercedes-AMG G63 six-wheeler, allowing the terrain tamer to stretch its legs portal axles and puts its lockable diffs to good use.

Car collector gregb.23 is well aware of this, since the man likes to spend plenty of time in that part of the world, even though most such adventures involve supercars.

And the aficionado recently took his six-wheeler out to play, with the three-pointed star hero being greeted by tons and tons of snow.

To be more precise, the shenanigans we're talking about took place in Cortina d'Ampezzo, which can be found in the Southern Alps, in the Veneto region of Northern Italy.

As it turns out, a Porsche Cayenne had also decided to face the snowstorm that hit the area, with the Zuffenhausen SUV not even getting close to conquering the terrain.

Fortunately, the Gelandewagen was around to help, as you'll get to see in one of the Instagram images below. Judging by what we can see in the image, the otherwise respectable offroading abilities of the Cayenne didn't even matter. And that's because it seems like the sheer ground clearance issues meant the Porscha didn't stand a chance against the winter.

And once the 6x6 was done playing the savior role, the thing attacked the snow as if the white stuff wasn't even there. And this kind of driving certainly deserves a round of applause, since the machine got used as it maker intended it to.
