    I can´t even remember what the search began with but I ended up finding this company. One of there models looks like the Tata Loadbeta(which also looks like an older Mercedes),some older Mercedes vans,Unimog type vehicle and finally a G Wagen copy.

     : Force Motors LTD.

    Mercedes and Tata Motors have had a long running contract for almost half a century whereby in India cars made by Tata (very similar design concepts to Mercedes models) were sold. And yes they do use the Mercedes engines and parts. So perfectly legal as far as Mercedes is concerned. Do think the contract ended last year though.

    Tata Motors is a very successful company and also own Jaguar Land Rover. This company has bought Jaguar Land Rover back to life with their new designs and boosted sales. I like the look of all new Jags and Range Rovers so good on them.

    I believe Force Motors Ltd now has a simliar agreement with Mercedes.

    After reading up more it seems Mercedes are sharing some of their designs in exchange for these companies building engines etc for them.

    Interesting... where does one buy one of these? I bet they're cheaper than a G-Wagen...

    I really really like them - first saw one on 'India on four wheels'

    Just need to change the front/grille.

    Considering most cars nowadays are made in China/India and then have the wheels added around the world, I wouldn't be so sure...

    So they have a licence to use the design, yet still see the need to completely re-engineer it so that they can take out all of the safety features... :rolleyes:

    That's the problem with 4x4 drivers in the UK, they don't seem to like having large biceps and airy chests..


    probably because most of them are women.
