The Mercedes Unimog has a long history starting back in 1946 in post-war Germany when they were developed as a farm vehicle that could also be driven on the road. It wasn’t until 1953 that the first closed cab model was introduced. Later in 1955 the 404 S was developed for the Federal West German army. Since then there have been many models sold and used for all types of work and recreational off roading.
Mercedes recently announced a new lineup of ten Unimog models that has allot of people excited. While browsing the web I came across and article and photos about it on the Top Gear website.
