Mercedes Sprinter Extreme Concept is a Dumptruck, Unhinged

If Jurassic Park needed construction vehicles.

In addition to the legions of uber-luxury sedans, SUVs, and sports cars that Mercedes-Benz is well-known for, the company also have a history of tremendously capable off-road vehicles, including the Gelandewagen (G-Class) and the legendary Unimog utility truck. Now, a new Sprinter-based off-road concept showcases just what happens when you let German engineers loosen their neckties and put back a few shots of Jager.

Aptly named the Sprinter Extreme, the very big and very green truck is built on the bones of a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 Cab chassis. From there, Mercedes partnered with the power-mad engineers at tuning house Renntech, which is renowned for its aftermarket performance work done to AMG products, to add most of the visual flair to the truck chassis.
