If you're looking for a the world’s most capable civilian adventure and rescue vehicle it has to be Mercedes-Benz’s Unimog.The problem with owning one is that they are rather large and don’t really fit into most suburban garages. Celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2011, Mercedes-Benz decided to commission the world’s greatest toy engineering brand to pay homage to Unimog - and allow brand fanatics to (finally) park a Mog in their living room without too much hassle.ULTIMATE OFF-ROAD TOYThe result is Lego’s new Unimog U 400. Built to 1:12.5 scale, it’s the Danish toy brand’s biggest product yet at 408mm bumper-to-bumper and 232mm tall, consisting of 2048 modules. Featuring electric drive and a range of pneumatics, thanks to a joint-venture technology transfer with Mercedes-Benz, this ultimate Lego truck’s loadbed-mounted crane unit (with grip arm) is powered by on-board pneumatics and can rotate and function through a full 360-degree of motion. As one would expect from a Lego/Mercedes joint venture, attention to detail is magnificent. The engine construction is accurate down to the actual piston lay-out and, just like the signature portal-axle drivetrain of the life-size Unimog, the Lego version has a special gear unit that ensures it has unmatched ground clearance for a build-it-yourself toy. Set to go on sale by August 2011 at a price of around R2000, the Lego U400 ‘Mog is sure to delight fathers as much as the sons for which it will, at least ostensibly, be bought.
