Governing a Merc

Arnold Schwarzenegger puts his Mercedes-Benz Unimog up for sale after replacing it with a Bugatti Veyron


Arnold ‘The Governator’ Schwarzenegger is a man who does it ‘large’. Aside from being built like a tank himself, this Austrian actor turned politician likes large cars and in putting his Mercedes-Benz Unimog up for sale and being spotted in a Bugatti Veyron this week, he showed his change in marital status hasn’t changed his tastes in how he likes to get around.

The Unimog is a vehicle best suited to the countryside though
The actor has signed the dashboard of the car but does this justify him asking more than he paid for it?

The former Governor of California paid £149,000 ($244,000) for his 12 mile to the gallon 1977 Unimog U1300 SE in 2012. The 6.4 litre diesel car has an engine that produces 320bhp and features 22-inch wheels fitted with Michelin XZL 445/65 tyres.


Fans of the movie star will be impressed to learnt that the four seat vehicle – which has just 1,300 miles on the odometer – has his signature on the dashboard. It also has high beam lighting, a reverse camera and an electronic winch. It is for sale with a guide price of £165,000 ($269,000) on the German website Mobile.


This week he was spotted driving a Bugatti Veyron

Schwarzenegger was spotted driving a £1.2 million ($2 million) open top Bugatti Veyron this week in Venice Beach. One has to ask: “Is this 67-year old having a midlife crisis?”
