Heck Curt, we have guys out here in Orygun who would consider that a "highway vehicle". In past years, there was an event near here called the "Foster mud flats races". When a local flood control reservoir was drained in the fall, all the local 4X4 nuts would show for these "races". How can I put it? Humvees would end up stuck in the mud, while the local 4X4 hotrodders keep on truckin' on. The Mercedes you posted would be competitive...maybe. But it would not be top dawg...not even close. The sad thing? These races no longer held at the reservoir. Whacko environmentalist political pressure...a load of KRAP about these races ruining and polluting the natural bottom...of a reservoir????

It is real. I saw Maximog when it was on display last year in NYC at the Museum of Modern Art. It truely is a work of art. My wife had to pull me away from it so we could go look at paintings.

Yeah, but do they have collision avoidance systems, triple GPS moving map systems, VHF aircraft transceiver, pneumatic scissors lift on roof for checking overhead clearance, 4 computers, video clearance observation systems (left, right, undercarriage, overhead), 30Kw hydraulic generator, 123 gallon fuel tank, passenger seat with 30 foot vertical elevation capability!!, laser rangefinder, vertical clearance laser, long-range thermal nightvision, surveillance radar, 6' fording depth, etc. And then of course, there's the matching travel trailer, motorcycle, unmanned aircraft (that transmitts live video back to the MaxiMog!), and jet boat - just in case. -- Curt

If the mud flats were say, across the Amazon basin (substitute: Southeast Asia, Siberia, Mars), no, I'm betting on the MaxiMog....

Awesome vehicle!

Awesome vehicle - but I wonder how fast it is around the Nurburgring?

I'd hope that Porsche's illustrious, winning rally history and wins in the Paris-Dakaar in the 959 variants are all wrapped up in the Cayenne.

Rumor has it that it is almost as fast over sand and ice and snow as it is over the track. We'll know soon.

Best,

Kurt (closet Cayenne lover)

I've seen Unimogs around here and thought they were neat. This must be their new big brother!

White is such a "Civilian" color for that truck, isn't it?

This vehcile actually has a purpose. It was commissioned by a guy who intends to circumnavigate the globe (without the use of roads). What better way than to send your unmanned aircraft up ahead on a reconn mission to see if enemy is lurking in the bushes! -- Curt

6' snorkle depth?

Hell, looks more like 10' snorkle depth to the top of the snorkle, either that or the guy is 3 feet tall.

There was a Unimog for sale near me at a local airport a while ago. I told my wife I wanted it but she thought I was crazy. Maybe I should try for the Maximog.

BTW, saw a new (to the US) MB Gelandewagen the other day - she thought that would be OK.

There was a pickup version for sale at the PartsHeaven swap meet, had the VW style fold down gates. If I'd had an extra $11,500 laying around, I'd have parked the 911 in the back of it and driven it home!
