I think that the upcoming (2H2012) 9398 Lego Technic 4x4 Crawler set will lend itself to LOTS of customization. One could create various types of Trial Trucks (using the components supplied) to enhance torque, or speed, or a little bit of both.
I agree - it's not an officially licensed vehicle like the Unimog, it has a competitive purpose unlike the Motorized Excavator (I've yet to see anyone race an excavator), and much like the original 4X4 Off-Roader, it is coloured mainly by its panels - meaning it won't be hard to change the livery should you have enough pieces.
I like the yellow, although I feel the solid colour makes the vehicle look too tame. It's a 4X4 rock crawler, not a rescue vehicle. However, there's not much that can be done about it and it looks well built regardless, so that's not a problem.
