INKAS Armoured G63

Although the Mercedes-Benz G63 has gone from being a military vehicle to being used by surburban soccer moms to drive their kids to school, it still retains that almost brutal utilitarianism that it was originally designed for. INKAS Armored Vehicle Manufacturing, a Toronto-based company, has taken this military-like inspiration from the truck’s original design and turned it into an armoured vehicle for the super-elite.

INKAS says that their armoured G-class is “in accordance with NIJ Standard 0108.01 Level 3 and/or CEN 1063 Level B6” and that it’s reinforced floor can withstand the force from two DM51 grenades detonated at once. This means that it comes with enough reinforcement to provide protection against .308 Winchester FMJ ammunition. That really is some protection. But none of this matters if the vehicle can’t get away from the bad guys. That’s why INKAS bases their builds on the G63 AMG, with 563 hp on tap from it’s twin-turbocharged V8.

Fortunately, the armour is not the only upgrade the G-Wagen receives. INKAS also stretches the middle of the chassis by 43 inches to make the cabin the last statement in luxurious travelling. The interior of the vehicle gets curved wood, a sea of leather, a satellite telephone and TV, a fridge, indoor exhaust system, and a pistol holder. Most of the interior features, such as lighting, seat positioning, cameras, HVAC, and audio/visual systems are controlled via an iPad mini that comes included with the car.

If you think that this luxury and protection don’t come cheap, you would be right. Prices for the INKAS armoured G-Wagen start at an astonishing $1,000,000 USD. Seeing as how the half-million dollar price tag doesn’t stop people from purchasing the G63 AMG 6×6, I don’t see INKAS having too much trouble selling this tank.
