Mercedes-Benz Celebrates 60 Years Of The Unimog With Crazy Concept

The legendary Unimog has been a Mercedes-Benz workhorse for the past 60 yearsa truly rugged, no-frills vehicle that can go anywhere and do anything with neither affluence nor pretension. This Bizarro-World lime-green concept? Not so much.

Mercedes-Benz unveiled this crazy Unimog concept as a symbol of what might happen for the next 60, with LED projector headlights, lime-green paint drawn from the poison dart frog (Mercedes' words), and "an impressive, dynamic and extremely expressive 'face'" that more resembles a mustachioed platypus than a workhorse.

The Unimog concept keeps the coil-over springs and chassis from the current Unimog U5000 (and therefore tradition), and claims the open top is a homage to the original square-jawed Unimog from 1951. But if its designers have their say, the future of the Unimog lies in chrome wheels. If John Deere built cars for Wiz Khalifa's entourage, this would be it.
