Probably guzzles petrol/diesel like there's no tomorrow.
At 30 bar it better bloody have an auto at least... Better if it came with a permanent driver though. I don't want to be mushing around with gears if I can spend 30 bar on a vehicle.You do realise it has an automatic gearbox? 9-speed I think. I stand open to correction though.
I cannot find the source now. But, I remember seeing an extract from a book written by someone (possibly Rupert related) in which they tell the story of how the Merc 6 x 6 made it's way to SA. Apparently Mercedes said they would only bring it in if they get a MOQ of x units so they made it so.There is someone in Stellenbosch or Somerset west who bought a couple.
