Robust sophistication seems like an oxymoron, but it’s anything but when talking about Stone Offroad Design’s (SOD) heavily-modified Rise 4x4. Not only is it rugged enough to take any terrain you give it, but it’s so beautifully-appointed that “roughing it” just isn’t the right vernacular to use when thinking about adventuring in this King of 4x4s.
Frankenstein Beginnings to Sleek and Chic
The Mercedes-Benz Unimog U5032 provides the skeleton on which The Rise is built. Since the Unimog is powerful in its own right and didn’t need major upgrading, SOD (based out of Germany) focused on the vehicle’s interior which is stunningly ideal for a luxury off-road vacation. What’s good to know, though, is that you can take this baby through almost four feet of water or mud and for a 4x4, that’s as good as it gets.
Modern, High-Style Interior
SOD used contemporary, neutral tones throughout the cabin – mostly shades of black, white and gray. There is loads of natural sunlight as well as a skylight and an impressive chandelier. The rig is loaded with amenities such as a state-of-the-art surround sound system, wireless communication package, incredible media system, and more. Here’s what else you get:
- Full-size bed in main bedroom;
- Kitchen with mega counter space, four-burner stove, sink and fridge/freezer combo;
- Lounge area with wrap-around sofa and dining table which can be converted into a second bedroom area;
- Bathroom with toilet, sink and shower;
- Hot water heater;
- Heated floors;
- 840 watts of solar panels;
- Powerful LED lighting package;
- Cargo box and spare wheel holder than can easily carry an all-terrain vehicle (ATV);
- Air conditioning.
SOD is asking just over US$1 million in exchange for one of the plushest, most powerful 4x4s on the planet.To get more information about creating your own adventure-filled luxury holiday, speak to one of the knowledgeable representatives at LVH – a leader in luxury vacation experiences.
