‘Jurassic World’ Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6 Teased
Mercedes, I refuse to believe that you aren't familiar with the concept of attraction. Because this thing is beastly and purty.
Admit it. The 6-year-old kid in you got all excited at the news that we would be getting a fourth Jurassic Park movie—entitled Jurassic World—sometime next year. It’s been more than 20 years since Steven Spielberg and Stan Winston blew your mind with the most realistic interpretation of prehistoric goliaths since Willis H. O’Brien and inspired you to take all the money your parents had given you for the latest Schoolastic Book Fair and pour it into books about Velociraptors. Dinosaurs haven’t been done better in the time since (I’m looking you directly in the eye, Carnosaur), and the world is ready for another dose of dino goodness.
We’ve already had some Jurassic World plot details leak (Isla Nubar is safe for public consumption and has been molded into a less-terrifying version of Sea World) and concept art gives us a look at what Jurassic Park proper will look like (before it is dropped head-long into bloodshed and chaos, of course). One of the tastiest tidbits we’ve gotten thus far, however, has nothing to do with the dinosaurs themselves. Rather, it’s the latest cast member that’s got us all excited.
No, Jeff Goldblum isn’t coming back (though there’s still time to hope).
I’m talking about the vehicles that will shuttle visitors around Jurassic Park. Joining the ranks of that iconic Ford Explorer and the Jeep Wrangler will be a monstrous-looking Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6.
The teaser image comes to us courtesy of the Jurassic Park 4 Committee Facebook page, showing the profile of the beastly 6×6 that Mercedes-Benz revealed last year. The G63 AMG 6×6 combines G-class sophistication with a three-axle chassis that Mercedes built for the Australian Army, in their words, “because we can.”
Mercedes-Benz will be making its second trip into the Jurassic Park universe, as their 1997 M-Class W163 was used as the primary vehicle in The Lost World.

Jurassic World is being directed by Colin Trevorrow and stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in leading roles. Steven Spielberg will serve as executive producer for the film, which is set to arrive June 2015. Let’s hope it isn’t one big pile…well, you get the idea.
Whether you think Jurassic World is necessary or not (and if you think the world doesn’t need another high-budget action film about dinosaurs wreaking havoc, you have no soul), I think we can all agree that seeing a Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6 decked out in a JP livery will be worth some of the admission price in and of itself. Also, just be thankful they decided not to go with that script that revolves around dinosaur/human hybrids (Dino Sapiens? Dude-osaurs?)
