The event, which took place at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire, demonstrated the versatility of Unimog.
With over 20 Unimogs in action and on display at Unimog Live 2017, guests who attended the event at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire were in for a real treat.
Over 135 people experienced the awesome off-roading ability of the Unimog first hand, driving a variety of models during the day, as well as learning about the multiple applications for this versatile vehicle.
Since 1946, the Unimog has been used not only in agriculture and forestry but also for fire rescue and the emergency services, by local and national authorities, military, the construction industry, mining as well as in motorsport and as a lifestyle vehicle. A professional for the professionals, the Unimog provides outstanding performance combined with absolute cost-effectiveness for all-year-around operations.
The Unimog has also recently turned its hand to acting. Fresh from its starring role as one of the primary Autobots in the film Transformers: The Last Knight, ‘Hound’, as it is known in the movie, was also on display. With the magic of Hollywood, this particular Unimog transforms from a military ambulance into a bearded transformer!
70 years on, only one commercial vehicle can accept any challenge and tackle it with the right result, every time: the Unimog. No other commercial vehicle in the world can function as a tractor, towing vehicle, truck, firefighting and exploration vehicle, bus and working machine in one.
At Unimog Live 2017 Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK offered customers, journalists and Unimog enthusiasts the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the latest models, to ask the product experts and body builders questions, and enjoy a jam-packed day of Unimog fun.
