The 8110 Unimog is here!

"to commemorate its 60th birthday, Lego and Mercedes teamed up to create a build-it-yourself version."

"The LEGO Technic Unimog U 400 will be sold in toy stores starting in August and will also be available from Mercedes-Benz dealers."

Big scale, lots of functions and possibilities, look at this comparison:

The new pieces:

Green: spring coils
Red: A new C-Shape frame 
Yellow: portal axles
Blue: the return of pneumatic mini pump!

The tires size is 94,3 x 38R", which would mean the largest in diameter in straight tires ever released by LEGO.
And it's shape were so realistic around 1:12 scale.
The orange pieces will be much appreciated too.
And the playability of this set must be brilliant. Just as motorisation possibilities.
