Do you want to go anywhere? Are you ready to escape from the grind for a bit? Do you also happen to have a few hundred grand stashed away in an account, itching to be spent? Then we have found the perfect machine for you. A user on the Expedition Portal forums is selling their 2005 Unimog U500 and it’s prepped to transit …everything.
This Mog is powered by a tuned version of the OM906LA turbodiesel engine. Normally these make a little bit of horsepower and buckets of torque. This one here, however, cranks out 312 horsepower. Torque is typically between 550 and 810 pound-feet for these rigs, but this one could be a bit higher with some engine upgrades.
You’ll need all of the energy available because this Mog will slog through its available 24 forward gears. Some for working and some for crawling. Don’t worry about fuel though because the tank can handle 160 gallons of the stuff.
On the tail of this mobile fancy studio apartment is parking for a motorcycle or dirtbike. That’s perfect for when the trail tightens up and you want to go have some lightweight fun away from your new basecamp.
This package doesn’t come cheap, of course. The seller states that it’s in excellent condition and shows just 29,500 miles. If you want it, you’ll need to fork over $399,000. That’s so much money but you’re basically getting a house… that can go wherever you want.
