Topgear 6x6 Mercedes

I reckon the 6x6 Mercedes tonight could tow just about anything you'd want to, and I don't think there's a slipway it couldn't manage either......
Now just need to find the 300k to buy one.....

I drove the standard 4WD G Wagon 30 years ago and it was awesome off road. The ability to lock the diffs front to rear and across made anything else look silly !
