The Mercedes-Benz 4WD Cabriolet Unimog is easily one of the quirkiest rides I have ever come across. This curiously designed car is a throwback to the first ever unimog made by the Silver Arrow in 1951.

While it may be hard to believe, that unimog created back in 1951 was a cabriolet and was green. That's where the similarities end though, as this ride has a badass look with its jacked-up suspension and massive off-road tires. While I would love to see the Mercedes-Benz 4WD Cabriolet Unimog showing its stuff on the highway, the car is destined to be a one-off, designed solely for celebration. Looks like I'll have to stick with my boring truck that lacks both a green paint job and the look of an alien insect.
