The Unimog is a go-anywhere, do-anything kind of all-wheel-drive truck that was developed by German manufacturer Daimler. The Unimog was built to drive over all kinds of terrain and for kinds of purposes. Although it was a commercial vehicle, it looks like another German company has taken this big bad truck and turned it into something that adventure auto enthusiasts would really enjoy.
It's called the Moghome. This behemoth of a machine was designed and developed for hardcore adventure junkies who like to pack all kinds of things when travel. The Moghome is essentially the most amazing recreational vehicle we’ve seen. It’s a motor-home that can take you, quite literally, anywhere. With a ground clearance of 500mm, it can dive 1.2-metre deep into the water and easily climb steep rocky hills. It’s ideal for expeditions and long-distance travels and makes for a perfect rugged motorhome. Just look at it!
The developers of this awesome moving home on wheels, Ziegler, added a comfortable cabin that can accommodate up to two people. The cabin features a drop-down large bed, a shower area, a well-equipped kitchen area with Miele oven, microwave oven and two induction hob plates, a diesel heater and a few aluminium storage boxes. All this comes as standard, but customers can also add an air conditioner, a flat-screen TV, radio and a bike carrier at the back. It’s fancy indeed.
To make sure all the utilities are running properly all the time, the motor-home is equipped with a 320-Ah lithium-ion battery pack and a 240-watt solar charging system. There is also a 230-litre water tank for the shower cabin.
The Moghome is powered is by a 250bhp, 5.1-litre diesel engine. It’s just enough to make it a smooth operator on highways, but the engine also generates 900Nm of torque to make sure it can power over anything. The engine is mated to a selectable all-wheel-drive system with low-range gear set, as well as front, rear and centre differential locks. But, all of this doesn’t come cheap, of course. It costs $420,000 (Rs 3.5crores). And, obviously, you won't be able to get it in India.
