California based Rezvani says the Hercules is made to offer the highest levels of performance along with a very comfort oriented suspension and interiors, and their famed Military spec protection.
Rezvani Motors, the designer of high performance sports cars has just released the Hercules 6×6 based on Jeep Galdiator, it’s a behemoth of a truck with six wheels and loads of attitude. Roughly resembling the Mercedes-Benz G-63 AMG 6×6, the Hercules has taken the style quotient leaps further with the blacked out body and six golden wheels. Rezvani says there will be several engine options available with the top-spec having a Supercharged V8 engine making 1300hp!
Developed from Rezvani‚Äôs Tank, explaining the matching front end, physical similarities however end there, the load bed is 8 feet long and beneath it is housed an extra axle. ‚ÄúThe Rezvani Hercules 6×6 was not designed to simply be a bigger vehicle by size but rather one that is a perfect balance between its brutal, muscular character yet comfortable enough and practical enough to be a daily driver in the city.‚ÄĚ quotes Ferris Rezvani, however using the Hercules as a daily driver in cities seems a bit far fetched.
The top spec receives the engine straight out of the Quarter mile churning Dodge Demon, which has been completely overhauled by Rezvani, firstly by making its capacity to 7L and adding a forged stroker crank, forged pistons, camshaft and the Supercharger from the Demon to make 1300hp and 989lbft of torque, performance number that are far ahead of the G63 6×6 or any of the top trucks available at today‚Äôs date. The transmission is sourced from a Dodge Ram TRX and is a 8-speed automatic. Other engine options include a 285hp 3.6L V6, a 500hp 6.4L SRT V8, and a 260hp 3.0L TurboDiesel. All the trim levels offer switchable 6×2, 6×4 and 6×6 drive configurations.
Options list on the Hercules is quite extensive, with three types of Fox suspension setups, two brake kits, multiple winches and tow hooks and Nappa leather interiors. The suspension system is specially tuned to be used for extremely rugged terrain while being comfortable for daily use. The roof has been fitted with a LED light bar, the load bed has a sculpted metal sport bar which is also available in Bronze finish. Ample focus has been on comforts, with customisations available for seats, stitching, lighting etc. Riding on 37in tires and Dana 60 axle set with air lockers and air compressor. The infotainment screen is 9in and comes with Apple Carplay and other connectivity features.
There is a special Military edition, which adds Kevlar padding, bulletproof glass, Run-flat tyres, Thermal night vision , underside Explosive protection, EMP protection, Self-Sealing fuel tank, Armored Radiator, Reinforced suspension, Ram bumpers, Electrified door handles, Smoke screen, Magnetic deadbolts, intercom, gas masks and a Hypothermia kit which starts at $325000 (INR 2.42 crore) with options adding to the cost which reaches half a million dollars for a fully loaded one. The standard spec Hercules 6×6 starts at $225,000 (INR 1.67 crore).
The Hercules 6×6 is a hundred percent head-turner on whatever road or region you drive it in, the chunky body panels along with the military grade protection offered in a 1300hp package makes it one of the craziest, most off-road capable and safe vehicle on the planet, added benefits of having comfortable seats and easy to use infotainment system add to the appeal of the six-wheeled monster.
