Monstrosity, outrageous or outlandish
This Hummer H1 X3 is something that makes me question everything I've witnessed and believed.
So, I went on the internet and found this monstrous thing being paraded around the streets of the UAE and since the never to be released Devel Sixteen with outrageous horsepower figures and Koenigsegg selling a 1400hp, 3 cyl family car, nothing surprises me anymore, or so that I thought.
But, this custom-built Hummer H1 X3 does question me about everything that is Automobile in this world, owned and commissioned By Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan al Nahyan a prominent figure of the UAE Royal Family whose taste for outrageous vehicles is no news, but this behemoth of a thing does intrigue me enough to take a deep dive into what it is underneath.
Hummer H1 X3 stands 22 feet tall, 19 feet wide, and roughly 45 feet long. The original Hummer H1 is about 6 feet tall and 15 feet long and the 3 in the ‘X3′ denotes the fact that it is 3 times the size of the original H1. Between Hummer H1 X3’ and 22-foot body, it houses two stories that are designed to have all the amenities of a complete house with a bedroom a bath, and a kitchen according to multiple sources on the internet.
Now, onto the details that we are all here to know, how does this two-story on four-wheels move? And from the videos that have surfaced online prove that it can move on its own steam, which begs the question of what it packs underneath its hood. As it seems it has four diesel engines on each wheel, that cumulatively are good enough for a top speed of 32kph, pretty impressive if you ask me, for a house on four wheels. Speaking of wheels, its wheels and tires are sourced from an amphibious vehicle LARC LX utilized by the US Army, also on which the Hummer H1 X3 is based, which makes one thing clear that X3 is just a replica of the Hummer H1, and is not an H1 on steroids.
The Hummer is currently on display at the Off-Road History Museum in Al Madam, Sharjah, UAE. Where plenty of such outrageous vehicles are on display, that will make you question everything about automobiles.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
