2006 Brabus Unimog U 500 Black Edition news, pictures, specifications, and information
At the beginning of December 2005 DaimlerChrysler presented the new Mercedes-Benz Únimog Ú 500 Black Edition, which has been additionally upgraded by Brabus the tuning company, at the Dubai Motor Show. The new Únimog Ú 500 Black Edition is tailored to meet the wishes of customers in the Gulf region: outstanding off-road capabilities combined wîth refined elegance both inside and out. The Mercedes-Benz Únimog Ú 500 Black Edition aims to make the concept of an outstanding all-terrain capability and solidity accessible to a discerning private target group, creating an interesting and spectacular addition and alternative in the off-roader market.

The new Mercedes-Benz Únimog Black Edition is a combination of a day-to-day, recreational and utility vehicle based on the Únimog Ú 500. Cooperation wîth Brabus the tuning company in Bottrop has created a recreational vehicle for individualists, wîth a striking appearance which sets it apart from other on-road or off-road vehicles. The high, truck-like seating position provides the driver wîth excellent all-round visibility. Thanks to power §teering and compact dimensions, the Mercedes-Benz Únimog Ú 500 Black Edition is as manoeuvrable as a medium-sized passenger car.

Both the exterior and interior of the exclusive Únimog Black Edition have been completely revised. Its elegant silhouette is characterised by both a platform wîth integral side panels and a newly designed bumper. The robust roll-over bar of polished stainless steel and upswept chrome exhaust pipes accentuate the sporty appearance.

The vehicle interior has been customised by Brabus and includes 16 features in real carbon (e.g. instrument cluster, centre console, door and grab handles). The roof and the A/B-pillars are lined in Alcantara leather, while the sports-style seats are upholstered in the finest mastic leather and the footwells are carpeted in soft velour. The colour scheme is deep black, in line wîth the model name. With a black leather §teering wheel and sporty aluminium pedals, the driver of the Únimog Black Edition has the vehicle firmly under control. Technical highlights include the COMAND system from the S-Class, wîth a 6.5' screen, DVD navigation, CD changer and a specially developed compass function. A comfortable interior atmosphere is ensured by two separately controlled air conditioning systems, tinted glass all-round and a first-class sound system.

The Únimog generates an output of 205 kW/ 280 hp from an engine displacement of 6.4 l, developing a torque of 1100 Nm. A high final-drive ratio enables speeds of over 120 km/h to be achieved. With a gross vehicle weight of 11.99 tonnes, the Mercedes-Benz Únimog Black Edition has a payload of around 4.3 t and is fitted wîth tyres in size 455/70 R24. The standard portal axles in conjunction wîth the in-cab-operated tyre pressure control system and the rear-mounted cable winch make this premium Únimog an extra-special off-roader which knows practically no limits. The EAS transmission allows the gears to be shifted manually or in automatic mode, just as the driver prefers. Switching between the two modes is possible at any time.

The Mercedes-Benz Únimog Ú 500 Black Edition offers the well-known off-road capability of the Únimog, a high payload for all manner of sports equipment and a high towing capacity. This makes it suitable for a wide range of applications: in addition to day-to-day use in the city this Únimog is ideal for excursions to rough mountain areas, remote ski slopes or hot desert regions. And soon afterwards the same vehicle can be used as a towing unit to transport a yacht to the coast or carry boating and diving equipment. These many applications fully reflect the versatility for which the Únimog is famous.
