Ever since Mercedes Benz created the G63 AMG 6×6 several years ago, the latest must have modification for the rich and the elite is more length, and the addition of an extra set of rear wheels. Hennessey has been a leader in this unique niche market for awhile now, with the Chevrolet Silverado Goliath, as well as the Ford F-150 Velociraptor 6×6. But there’s always more room for competition, and the folks at Rezvani are boldly jumping into the fray with the Hercules.
Based on their Tank SUV, Rezvani released two teaser images of the Hercules ahead of its debut. One features the massive 6×6 lurking in a darkened room, while the other one takes the liberty of highlighting the rear wheels. Based on what we can see here, it certainly looks menacing, and with the Tank sharing its roots with the Jeep Wrangler, it’s technically the closest thing you can get to an official 6×6 Wrangler. But the Tank is at the end of the day far more than the sum of its parts, and goes far beyond just adding a steel body and a second axle to a tweaked Wrangler. Rezvani claims that the 6×6 will feature Fox suspension components, and if it is indeed based on the Tank, look for it to either be powered by a 500 horsepower naturally aspirated 6.4 liter V8, or a highly modified 6.2 liter supercharged V8 that makes an utterly absurd 1,000 horsepower. The interior will most likely be lathered in high quality leather trim, and other luxury touches that would be fit for a king. Of course, the Hercules wouldn’t be truly mythical if it didn’t get the Military trim which features goodies such as bullet proof glass and armored body panels. Other optional exclusives include night vision, built in smokescreen, a self sealing fuel tank, underbody explosive protection, dead bolt latches, run flat tires, and even electrified door handles.
Pricing has not been revealed as of yet, but the standard Tank’s pricing ladder can help provide some clues to what we can see in the Hercules. A base Tank starts at $155,000 and the Tank Military has a base sticker of $259,000. With that in mind, we would not be surprised if the base Hercules has a base price of $200,000 with the Military trim and other optional goodies easily crossing the $300,000. If you are interested in owning one for yourself, you can put down a fully refundable deposit of $266 to secure your spot in the order book. The Hercules will formally make its debut later this summer, with deliveries expected to begin sometime after that.
