Mercedes-Benz Hexawheel Concept

The cool vehicle you see is Mercedes-Benz Hexawheel concept, which is designed by Iranian stylist/engineer Siyamak Rouhi Dehkordi. This a six wheels extreme off-road concept. It can layout and a flexible frame.
The Hexawheel Concept is an extreme three-seater off-roader targeted to adventurous customers and people who need to move in extremely diffficult conditions and terrains. The hallowed portal axles of the Unimog are abandoned in favor of independent suspension at each wheel, but the frame itself is truly interesting.

It sported steering on its front and rear axles, the Hexawheel’s rear section pivots laterally, allowing the 16-foot long vehicle to have an 18-foot turning radius. Further enhancing its prowess off-road is its balanced drivetrain. Dehkordi’s design calls for a diesel-hydraulic drive system, with the engine, pump, and accumulators placed underneath the pickup bed. The fuel tank, located under the cab, helps distribute truck’s 4850-pound curb weight.

I think Mercedes-Benz Hexawheel Concept is a neat idea, but only reservation lies with torsion. Long-travel suspension does help traverse obstacles, but when it comes time to twist , like the Gama Goat does when climbing this hill, we’d be curious to see how the Hexawheel performs in the real world. Sadly, we think this will remain a digital flight of fancy for the foreseeable future.
