MD48 / MAN LE 14.280 CC

Opportunity …

Compact expedition vehicle for 4-6 people.
Due to the short wheelbase, it's ideal for manouvering in off-road and in the mountains.
This vehicle was and is still in service for geological expeditions
and was only driven by the owner himself. It was mainly used in Iceland and Northern Europe.
The vehicle is now looking for a new home.
