The European truck most noted for its complete badassedness is the Mercedes-Benz Unimog — a vehicle so large the company determined Americans would find it offensively huge. Now LEGO is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the truck by building a scale 2,000+ piece version that's the largest Technic set ever sold.
The Unimog is used variously by the military, local governments, construction companies, and anyone who needs a vehicle as tough as it is overwhelmingly gigantic. It's also widely considered to be the go-to vehicle in a post-apocalyptic situation. Though rare in the United States, they can be found.
