Arnold Schwarzenegger's Mercedes-Benz Unimog Just Turned Up on eBay
If Arnold Schwarzenegger had an automotive equivalent, there’s little question as to what it would be—a Unimog. They’re both massive, they’re macho, and they’re plenty unforgettable. It’s no wonder then that “the Governator” previously owned one, and in fact, now you can too. His! This Mercedes-Benz Unimog is said to have been outfitted and upgraded for none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger himself, and it recently surfaced on eBay in Stafford, Texas. Be warned, it isn’t exactly what you’d call cheap though. You’ll have to say “hasta la vista” to $351,000 for the keys to this ex-Arnie Unimog.

So what do you get for your hard earned cash? As its gargantuan size would suggest, a lot. The Unimog U1300 boasts a colossal 6.4-liter turbodiesel straight-six under its lid, which offers up 320 horsepower and likely an obscene amount of torque. That wallop of power is sent to all four wheels through an automatic transmission, and it may very well be necessary in order to turn those sky-scraping 45-inch Michelin XZL tires. Don’t fall.
Some more off-roady bits came courtesy of German specialists Merex Mertec, who modified the Unimog for Schwarzenegger, adding on a set of Hella high beams, a 15,000 pound Warn winch, rearview camera, roll bar, and a four-person bench seat in the truck bed. Imagine going along for that ride. And just so the next buyer doesn’t forget who previously owned this rig, Schwarzenegger signed the dashboard.

Somewhat unsurprisingly, the ex-Schwarzenegger Unimog hasn’t turned many digits on its odometer—just 1,865 miles. Anyone care to add a few miles more? The auction ends Thursday afternoon.
