The former California governor is celebrating his long-awaited return to acting by purchasing a $250,000 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U1300, a multipurpose monster truck. The Terminator star unveiled his new ride on Thursday while driving around Santa Monica.
Described as the ultimate all-terrain vehicle, the Unimog has been designed to fight forest fires, perform rescue operations and perform military-related duties.
So how does a military grade vehicle handle the roads of Santa Monica? Well, Schwarzenegger’s Unimog had to be specifically modified by Mertec, a German company, to properly handle L.A. terrain. Although Schwarzenegger purchased his new Unimog for cruising beachfront cities, it is actually the choice army vehicle for many countries including the United States, Britain and Germany.
