The first mighty beast of the fourth “Jurassic Park’’ movie was revealed today. If you’re a dinosaur lover, don’t get too excited. This monster is mechanical, not reptilian.
A picture of the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 was posted today to the Jurassic Park 4 Committee’s Facebook page. Unfortunately, for fans of the G63 it’s not much a sneak peak because the vehicle appears strapped to a pallet and covered by a white tarp.
The Mercedes M-Class made an appearance in the last “Jurassic Park’’ film. The G63 6×6 will make its big screen debut when “Jurassic World’’ comes out in 2015. The six-wheeled monster will appear alongside Chris Pratt, Judy Greer, Bryce Dallas Howard, and a host of prehistoric co-stars.
So what makes it the right car to take on a T-Rex? According to iMotorTimes, the six-wheeled G63 6×6 has a 544-horsepower 5.5L biturbo V8, weighs over 8,400 pounds, and tears off the beaten path on 37-inch tires.
But unlike the dinosaurs that have delighted moviegoers since the first “Jurassic Park’’ came out in 1993, there is nothing CGI about the G63 6×6. It’s real and Mercedes-Benz will make between 20 to 30 a year.
But to afford one, you might want to buy stock in a dinosaur-cloning company (no, wait! On second, thought, don’t!). The price of this monster could get as high as $525,000, according to Motor Trend.
