The Sd.Kfz. 247 was an armored command car used by the German Armed Forces during World War II. The 58 four-wheeled models (Ausf. B), were built during the war. The proper name was schwerer geländegängiger gepanzerter Personenkraftwagen ("Heavy All-Terrain Armoured Motor Vehicle").

Daimler-Benz built 58 of these in 1941—42 on a 4 × 4 heavy car chassis (s.Pkw. Typ 1c). The front-mounted engine was an 8-cylinder, 3.823-litre (233.3 cu in) Horch 3.5 petrol engine, giving it a road speed of 80 kilometres per hour (50 mph). It had a maximum range of 400 kilometres (250 mi). (Via)

The Ausf.B was largely deployed on the Russian front and possibly in Normandy in 1944. By then they had been phased out on the Easter Front, and replaced by specially modified half-tracks, like the Sd.Kfz.250 command version, more capable to deal with the extreme conditions of the Russian landscape and weather. In all cases, they were a rare sight. Today, three Ausf.Bs have been apparently reconstructed.(Via)

This Sd.Kfz. 247b is a very good WW2 German army vehicle reproduction. They had created to themselves a replica of Sd.Kfz. 247b for their club "Misko Brolia". They enjoyed this experience. They would like to share this with other enthusiast, so they decided to build Sd.Kfz. 247b as they did before with their own to anybody who would be interested.

This Sd.Kfz. 247b is built on a Land Rover Discovery base (with changes) and using the original photos of the vehicle and professional draftsmen. It is known that there was around 58 of these vehicles created and it is thought that there is no more originals left, so this is as close to an original as it gets.

The works would take around 5-6 months and would cost 25,000 euros. If there is any other information you need or any queries please email him.
