Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Unimog is For Sale

Arnold Schwarzenegger is a Mercedes fan – or a fan of crushing them. But he also really likes absurdly large military vehicles, and now you can own a Unimog built just for him.

This Unimog U1300 SE 6.4 is for sale on a German website, for a cool 208,250 euros (about US$270,000) . For that money, you get the signature of the former California governor on your dashboard.

It was reportedly built just for The Terminator on a 1977 chassis, and gets its motivation through a 6.4-liter turbodiesel inline-six. Those are 22-inch wheels riding on some massive rubber, too.

In the flatbed out back, there’s room for four passengers on the bench seat, and other features like a hydraulic lift for the cab. Just the kind of stuff you need if you’ve also driven Hummers around Beverly Hills.

And because of the vehicle’s historical status in Germany, it’s apparently street legal in the U.S. So, theoretically, you could buy it and use it every day. Why spend $200,000-plus on a new Mercedes then?

    I’d buy a new Unimog and would customize it to my taste not to Arnold’s 1980’s taste. The rest of the money would cover gas and maintenance for the life of the vehicle. Sounds sounder.
