The Mongols have had hunting in their blood for quite some time. Until recently, however, they lacked the money they needed to indulge in their passion by using the state of the art equipment available of the market. Luckily for them and unfortunately for the hunted animals, things have changed.
Take two businessmen friends in Ulan-Bator. Hunting buddies who just bought two custom-made Mercedes-Benz Zetros 2733 A 6x6 monsters, to be used in hunting trips and some other type of expeditions. And when we say custom, we don't mean only the exterior paint.
While on the empty plains of Mongolia, the two hunter-wannabes will always feel they have the same comfort as in their homes in Ulan-Bator. Because, although on the outside the two Zetros look pretty scary and ordinary, on the inside all the money the two have made from beer or coal have spoken.
Mercedes has fitted the two trucks, on demand, with a bedroom, a luxurious bathroom with a marble floor, underfloor heating and shower cubicle, a galley equipped with a ceramic hob, microwave with grill, refrigerator/freezer, bar and coffee machine, an electrically operated table in the leather wrapped seating group and even a rear vehicle bay able to accommodate a quadbike.
Since the stunning machines can be successfully used as mobile living quarters in case the world comes to an abrupt end, the Zetros also features state-of-the-art technology on board. A water-cooled diesel generator provides the power for the SAT receiver with an electrically self-aligning SAT dish, the DVD/CD player, the MP3 player, the Bose hi-fi sound system, the Mac Mini plus W-LAN router and for the 46-inch flatscreen monitor.
The price the two have paid for the trucks (each of the businessmen bought one, since they're friends) have not been disclosed.
