Auction Block: 2004 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U500

Jun 20, 2019

When it comes to off-road vehicles, few are quite as monstrous and capable as the Mercedes-Benz Unimog. The one problem: they’re mostly only used for commercial and military purposes — with civilian versions few and far between. If you’ve been hoping to get behind the wheel of one of these monoliths, however, this is your lucky day, because a 2004 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U500 has just gone up for auction.

Originally, this particular example had a single-cab layout but was converted to a more-spacious crew cab in 2015 — meaning there’s more interior room for you, your gear, and anyone you want to bring along on your adventures. It’s also powered by a monster of a 6.4L turbodiesel inline-six engine that, when paired with its beefy suspension and massive all-terrain tires, promises you’ll be able to tackle any terrain with ease. To further solidify its formidability, it boasts a hydraulic-powered 3-way tilting bed, a custom rollover bar, central tire inflation system, and (perhaps best of all) a clean California title. If you can beat the current bid of $85,000, this beastly brute could be yours.

Purchase: $85,000+
