It's not the type of vehicle you'd drive to the mall, but if you're planning a multi-day adventure in the far reaches of the wilderness, the KiraVan is just what you're looking for. This modified Unimog is powered by a Mercedes-made 6-cylinder turbo diesel engine cranking out 260hp and 700ft-lb of torque, and its stretched frame makes room for a four-door cabin — more like a cockpit, really, thanks to its eleven display screens — and an articulating fifth-wheel trailer hitch. Speaking of the trailer, it works in conjunction with the tractor to offer 6-wheel drive at speeds up to 25mph, is fully capable of operating as a standalone base station, and features up to 3 sleeping areas, a full kitchen, a server-based media library, two computers with Internet connection, satellite HDTV, and even a 4K monitor. In other words, it's perfect for video shoots, research teams, or just a really posh camping trip.
When it comes to cars 30 years and older, it's tough to find them in great shape. Which is part of what makes this 1976 Mercedes-Benz 406 Unimog so appealing. Formerly used as an aircraft tug by the German Army, it spent its active duty garaged inside hangars, preserving its rugged body. The original 84hp six-cylinder diesel engine has approximately 3,300 hours on it, and is joined by a converter clutch, a power take-off shaft at the front, a "Schmidt" plate for attaching tools like a snowplow or loader, seat belts in the front and rear, new wheels and tires, refurbished seats, the unfortunately detached original speedometer, and a guarantee to draw the attention of off-roaders everywhere.
