Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon LAPV 6.X Concept is capable of conquering small nations –

Mercedes-Benz is a pretty sensible automaker, offering both exquisite luxury limousines, like the 2011 CL Class, but also performance supercars, like the SLS AMG.

Every once in a while though, the company’s engineers get ‘creative’. The result is the hulking monster you can see above, the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon LAPV 6.X Concept.

The imposing model boasts everything you might see in a tank, but all packed in the already capable G-Wagon (G Class) off-roader. You’ll find armor plating, including underbody protection, in case you fancy a drive over land mines. Besides that, adjustable suspension is present, capable of offering 18 inches worth of clearance, as is a hydraulic braking system with ventilated discs.

The G-Wagon LAPV also boasts a military-grade communications system complete with a jamming station, you know, just because. A common-rail diesel engine powers this road-ready tank, but it wasn’t detailed. Even so, Mercedes guarantees that the model can haul around 2,866 pounds of cargo at speeds of up to 150 km/h.

So, in case you want to complete that personal militia, or just invade a small nation, ‘Ze Germans’ from Mercedes have got you covered.
