Mercedes Benz has a six wheeled SUV for those that just need to get there, and in style.

Costing over $400,000 I might need to save up a bit

M-B back in 1939 had a model G-4 6 wheel model http://www.gizmag.com/go/3663/ and from 1930 to March 1944 they produced the model 770 used mostly by the government as state cars, Hitler owned a 770K what was recently auctioned off to some collectors for an undisclosed amount. The Canadian War Museum also has a 770 on display, a good photo of the UniMog http://www.flickr.com/photos/g88ber/5726141432/ and a 1943 L1500a http://www.flickr.com/photos/g88ber/5726141432/

Thanks,

The first link that Merc G4 was the one I was searching for <- seen it in a WW2 movie. But when I searched google as (Mercedes WW2 vehicles) came back as no items found. Then tried different variations in the search field , same thing not found.

What one link said was that if you asked what milage it got then you couldn't afford the gas anyway. crazy

Kinda reminds me of my 76 Chevy station wagon that had a four barrel carb. I swear when I would floor it, I could see the gas gauge needle go down
