A few weeks ago one of my friends and I were fantasizing with the idea of a Zombie outbreak and how we would survive. Both of us were drooling with the idea of being swashbuckling zombie killers, however, one thing that we found difficult was exactly what transport should we find.

Today i found that vehicle.

The Unicat Amerigo International Is Good For Regular, Zombie Or Financiapocalypse






This particular survival vehicle has a 2,000-mile range and carries enough supplies to keep four people alive for more than three months...

...features a 110-gallon freshwater tank and an RO watermaker that can decontaminate and desalinate from almost any source of water. A military-grade first aid kit is setup for most minor emergencies and a complete set of tools (including self-extraction equipment) ... Roof-mounted solar panels help power the Unicat, which features a full suite of global communications equipment as well as an advanced entertainment system for keeping your crew entertained when not on zombie patrol.

A frequent point of discussion when identifying a great survival vehicle is the inclusion of a BOV (bail-out vehicle). The Unicat can be outfitted with two bikes, motorcycle, kayak and a 15' Zodiac with a 15 hp outboard motor.

There's also plenty of storage for extra hunting/fishing/SCUBA gear or whatever you think you'll need to stay alive in the radioactive deserts of the future. It may be more expensive than your house, but your house can't travel 2,000 miles without stopping for gas.

Anyone else feeling some 'manlove' for this vehicle? I know i am... i'm feeling the burn to go'a'zombie huntin'.

does the cab have direct access to the main body?

your pics dont show

if it doesnt getting from the cabin to the steering wheel might be rough if a horde of zombies turn up while your having a nap in the bed

I wouldn't mind testing one of those out for a weekend or so. Just to get a feel and see what it would be like. I think I have seen the white one around these parts. I was eyeing it up wondering what it was. Nice!

Is it not just an over expensive winne at the end of the day, I mean you can convert any commercial vehicle into a survival one and probally at a fraction of the cost. And what do you use for fuel when there aint none left.

That is a great question that I also wondered.

Another question is..... How strong is the glass? If the zombies (or whatever) could break the glass, they would be able to get into the cab and then to the back.

Look its just a big commercial truck for Satans sake, why all the drooling. As I said before anyone with some decent engineering skills could knock one up for a fraction of the cost.

Q. What is the price range of the UNICAT Amerigo models?
A. Starting prices are:
Amerigo with Unimog U500 4x4 starts @ $500,000
Amerigo with International 7400 4x4 starts @ $500,000

From their website.

Nice ride, wonder if it could be converted to bio-diesel?

Their company produces a few other rather large vehicles as well.

Unicat

Judging from the pics on the site, you can certainly reach the living area from the cab in the EX70-HD and the Amerigo International. Cant really tell from the others.

Also, they do custom trucks. For a starting price of half a million USD, I imagined they would. In a custom package, for enough money, one would imagine you could get any type of glass you wanted.

Now if only had $500,000+ laying around. Will need to check the couch cushions when I get home. Thanks for the find and post, good to know this stuff is out there, assuming one could afford it.

the A-team or mcguyver could do it with a peddle go cart and some random junk out back of the warehouse

but im not sure how effective cabbage cannons are on zombies

Nice and manly...

But all those mods can be made at a fraction of the cost on almost any land rover (even cheaper on the earlier series)...

My friend for example has managed to modify his with these:

2nd battery to power back up lights, refrigerator and back up systems.

Modified gears and traction for greater horse power

Bull bars

Extra lights (flood, spots etc)

Roof racks and roof tent

Standard Winch and back up winch

Tool storage area (Axe, chainsaw, spanners, wrenches, oil, screw drivers, hack saws, hand and finger saw, spare fuel, drill, spare battery, engine seals (engine 'condom') etc etc)

Equipment storage (enough room for several rucksacks with spare clothing, tools, spare cookers and such)

CB radio

Standard radio

Compass

PA and microphone

Various sirens

Refrigerator and food chiller

Cooking area attached to rear door (can be used with door closed and open to varying degrees)

Pull out water proof canvas (for safe and warm exterior sleeping) and various ropes, bungee's etc)

Space for 25 gallon (i think) water storage operating on condensation and purification techniques.

And he's even got an armoured trailer that is very capable of difficult off road terrain that can be used to store yet more stuff (i.e this thing can hold yet more goodies).


It isn't perfect, but it's very cheap as he pays minimal insurance and NO road tax because of its age.

It's a doddle to fix up and modify, it can run off 'alternative' and illegal fuel - if it came to such a situation) and he's a bloody good off road driver.

Technically 3 people could sleep inside (with difficulty), although with the roof tent and pull out all weather canvas, this gives the potential of being able to stop and camp anywhere safe... In a situation X scenario, this baby could even drive up mountains and across rivers, through fences, across ditches and could even pull your house down...


Plus he's planning on installing solar panels, snorkle (so it can get across rivers and such) and riot shields for windows amongst other minor mods...

What's more, because this thing is old skool. it doesn't rely on chip technology, it's just pure DRIVE.

Dude, scuse my ignorance but what exactly is illegal fuel?

Is it smuggled across the border in the stomach of a donkey and will do the work of 100 hundred of the aforesaid trojan donkeys for the price of a few beers?

I would say a dirt bike/Enduro bike or quad, larger vehicles are inherently dangerous,stay away from roads! when you get stuck/stopped or ambushed good luck!
I could disable that truck with my bare hands! The safest vehicle should be inconspicuous or expendable and importantly, can get you where you need to go ,cheers!

Without being to incriminating, it's fuel that can be made from home. I'm not saying anymore, because i don't want to annoy the mods, and b) it's possibly illegal in some countries.
