    I bet the extra axle makes the whole rig more stable, though every one of those AMG horsepower would be needed to haul what I bet is a real
    weight porker. Now put an extra hundred hp electric motor at each wheel, for those instantaneous torque needs where another 600 hp comes in handy, haul the huge battery pack behind you in a designer matched utility trailer, and you'll astound your friends with a Panamerica Turbo...

    We can only dream. Mercedes's dinosaur SUV is modernized like a 6x6 Gator...

    With a curb weight of 8300#, a 5.5-liter, twin-turbo V-8 rated at 536 hp under the hood and a 7 speed transmission (giving a 0 to 60 mph time of ~6 seconds) I would hope that it could tow a bunch (not that most people are liable to use a truck that costs close to $457,00 to tow with).

    A Hummer is crazy.
    Snow is crazy.
    Plowing snow is crazy.
    But I guess you gotta get those snow peas in while you can.
    But I'm a south Texas boy, so what do I know?
