Lightbulb Mercedes-Benz unveils crazy Unimog concept to celebrate 60 years

Filed under: Concept Cars, Mercedes-Benz


Mercedes-Benz Unimog Concept - Click above for high-res image gallery

The legendary Unimog is a rugged, go-anywhere vehicle designed to handle just about any job you can throw at one. Daimler-Benz took over the production of Unimog trucks back in 1951, and now 60 years later, Mercedes-Benz looks to honor the history of the vehicle while also taking a look at its possible future.

A Unimog concept vehicle has been prepared as a glimpse into what tomorrow may bring for the legendary truck. The concept is based on the modern Unimog U 5000 chassis, while the open top is a nod to the original Benz Unimog from 1951.

The rest of the machine doesn't really bring anything else from the Unimog's history to mind, instead pointing the way toward the future with radical styling, oversize wheels and a fully exposed chassis.
