The Unimog is at home where other vehicles have to admit defeat. This was also the view of the readers of “Off Road” magazine who voted it off-roader of the year in the “Special Vehicles” category for the fifteenth time in a row. The Unimog U 4023 shown in the photo was upgraded by Hellgeth Engineering Spezialfahrzeugbau and has a special expedition body with a permissible gross vehicle weight (GVW) of just 7.49 tonnes. It is the answer to many globetrotters’ dreams: to be able to drive a modern, extreme off-road Unimog equipped with a box body living area on an old “Class 3” driver’s licence.
