From Russia With 6 Wheels: Get Your 6X6 Mercedes For A Fraction Of The Price
Have you ever seen a Mercedes G63 6x6 and thought to yourself “I wish this was more luxurious”? Well this ad on a Russian version of Autotrader is NOT for you! This is a modified Lada Niva made to look more like the infamous SUV for the rich and famous G63 6x6. Up for sale at 500,000 rubles or around 6,350€/7,250$/£5,680, the two cars are not in the same market. However, any wannabe superyacht owner would surely be very happy with the Lada.
The 2002 Lada Niva comes with whole list of upgrades inside and out. The engine has been swapped for a bigger, more powerful 1.7L powerplant developing 150hp. The owner has also added bright roof lights, a roof rack to put the stuff that won’t fit in the bed, a side step just like its more expensive cousin, a front bumper strong enough to hit even the strongest Ladas and off-road tyres capable of crossing Siberia. However, clearly the biggest upgrade is the additional axle and truck bed. All axles are driven by the engine making it a real 6x6 meaning it could just about cope with the potholes of Russian roads.
