While Dartz has moved on from its days peddling whale-penis leather (or at least they haven’t bragged about it in a while), the Latvian tuner company has turned its eye toward the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6. This time, with an eye for re-creating a movie car: The MRAP from Die Hard 5.

Called the Drive Hard 6x6 G, this special movie-inspired SUV creation isn’t just for show. The armored Drive Hard wears B8-grade armor making it resistant to all small arms fire and even the smaller range of bombs and IEDs.

With the addition of that B8 armor, the Drive Hard’s curb weight climbs from the roughly 8,500-pound G63 AMG 6x6’s factory figure to something around 11,000 pounds. To help hoist that heft, the Drive Hard’s 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 has been upgraded to 1,019 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque.

Rumored to cost about $3.3 million should you wish to commission your own example, the Drive Hard is certainly one of the wildest takes yet on Mercedes’ already-wild 6x6.

Dartz is no stranger to the excessive, armored SUV, of course, and the company has even envisioned another 6x6: the G-eopard safari vehicle.

What’s next from Dartz? We have no idea. None.
