Arab Sheikh Reveals World’s Largest Hummer SUV
The famous Arab car enthusiast Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al-Nahyan has revealed the world’s largest Hummer H1 SUV. Sheikh also has a Guinness world record for owning the largest collection of 4×4 off-road vehicles in the world at 718 models.
His latest creation — dubbed the Hummer H1 X3 — is 3 times the size of a normal H1 and 27 times its volume. The off-roader is 21.6 feet (ft) tall, 20 ft wide, and 46 ft long. It also serves as a recreational vehicle with two floors, stairs, a bathroom, and a guestroom with a 360º view.
The H1 X3’s platform is that of a U.S. Army LARC-LX steel-hulled amphibious cargo vehicle. Its power comes from four diesel engines which allow for a top speed of 32 kmh.
Since the SUV has no real purpose other than being a novelty, Shiekh Al-Nahyan will place it in his Sharjah Off-Road History Museum in the UAE where it will join the rest of his prized possessions.
