The Mercedes-Benz OM606 is a 3.0 litre inline-six cylinder (R6/I6) double overhead camshaft (DOHC) diesel engine with indirect injection manufactured by Mercedes-Benz between 1993 and 2001. It replaced the single overhead camshaft (SOHC) OM603 engine.

It is related to the straight-4 2.0 and 2.2 litre OM604 and the straight-5 2.5 litre OM605 engine families of the same era.

The engine block itself is derived from the inline 6 cylinder M103 & M104 petrol engines. The Diesel crankshaft differing somewhat from the gasoline versions. Prior to the merge with Mercedes-Benz, AMG affalterbach utilized the OM603 & OM606 crankshafts in modified form, for the 3.4litre and 3.6 litre AMG M104 gasoline engine variants.

Being known for its sturdiness, one of these engines is being used in a drift car by the Finnish Team Black Smoke Racing. Utilizing both a turbo- and supercharger (known as twincharging)it also has water injection and nitrous, the engine is reported to produce over 500 hp. There are also several modified road going cars that have been modified with HX35-50 turbochargers to produce up to 500 hp.
