The new Mercedes G-Wagon LAPV 6.X has been built strictly for active military use; the car has an unspecified diesel engine and is based on the standard G-Class 4x4. The Mercedes G-Wagon LAPV 6.X has a steel armour plated body capable of withstanding landmines and bullet fire. It can travel at speeds of up to 93mph on the roughest terrain, carrying a load of 1.3 tonnes. The armour plating is modular, so damaged panels can be removed and replaced quickly in the battlefield.

The price of the Mercedes G-Wagon LAPV 6.X has not been revealed as yet but presidents, prime ministers and record company executives can contact Mercedes for more information.

There is a data recorder on the Mercedes G-Wagon LAPV 6.X that tracks the position and usage of the car at all times, and a sophisticated communications system means the Mercedes always has radio coverage, regardless of where it is on the planet.
