When a Hummer just isn’t good enough, get a Pinzgauer! The Steyr-Daimler-Puch company located in Graz, Austria originally developed the Pinzgauer line (named after an Austrian breed of horse) in the late 1960s and manufactured and manufactured the vehicles through 2000. Military units across the world consider Pinzgauers among the most capable all-terrain vehicles ever made.
While a Pinzgauer will likely get you there, it will not do it very fast as its top speed is only 68 mph. While very slow, 710M like the example presented here can carry nine of your closest friends or troops and can tow 11,000 pounds on pavement or 3,307 off-road. With its air-cooled gas engine and sealed central differentials with portal axles, Pinzauers have proven themselves to be very reliable and easy to work on.
The Pinzgauer’s combination of a central tube chassis design with a transaxle distributes the vehicle’s weigh evenly at a relatively low center of gravity contributes to its high mobility. Like Mercedes’ Unimog, Pinzgauers utilize portal axles to provide extra clearance over obstacles.
