WANT: R/C Unimog 406 Under Hooniverse Festivus Pole

Holy hell. Do you want to bring a smile to the face of any Hoon? Buy the biggest novelty faux-fur-trimmed sock you can find and shove this military-grade R/C Mercedes-Benz Unimog 406 – CR01 Series U900 from Tamiya inside it. Um, and hopefully that Hoon is me. Because I want one. More hot pics and a sexy video after the jump.

Listen, it’s only $592 directly from Tamiya. That’s a bargain! And a hell of a lot less than a real Unimog, let me tell you. It packs a partially aluminum chassis, 4-link fully articulating suspension, and a planetary gearbox. Plus, Tamiya is throwing in as a freebie these 1/10 scale boxes [PDF] for your Unimog to haul around! You can build ’em yourself. You know, if you’re on budget, maybe just skip the Unimog altogether and get your kid these 1/10 scale boxes! Hours of fun! (OK, more fun with the Unimog.)

Wow. It’s hard to improve on something this cool, but if some enterprising hoon wants to swap out the electric motor for a miniature turbine, we wouldn’t complain.

  1. Strangely enough, a full size one of these is sitting on the Chevy lot in the town I'm moving to this week. No clue what they're asking for it and it's not on their website, though there are a few other interesting vehicles that are.
