Hummer H1 X3: the world’s largest Hummer that makes the regular one look like a toy car2 min read
As the name already suggests, Hummer H1 X3 is three times the size of a standard Hummer H1, making it the largest Hummer in the world, by far.
A regular Hummer H1 is one of the largest street-legal SUVs ever made, but it literally looks like a toy car next to this behemoth.
With his 6.6 meters high, 14 meters long, and 6 meters wide (21.6 x 46 x 19.6 feet), this metal monster is the largest Hummer in existence, at least according to its owner, Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, a member of the ruling family in Abu Dhabi and one of the most eccentric car owners in the world. He is also know as the Rainbow Sheikh, after one of his most impressive cars, a custom Mercedes S-class painted in all the colors of the rainbow, from the upholstery to the wheels.
This giant Hummer is powered by four diesel engines, but the technical specifications, including its top speed, have not been made public yet.
Actually, the very existence of the vehicle only became known recently, after photos of it being driven to the Off-Road History Museum in Al Madam, UAE went popular online.
The Hummer H1 X3 is just one of the exotic cars in the Rainbow Sheikh’s collection. Apart from owning the largest collection of SUVs and the largest motorized model car, he also owns the world’s largest SUV, which also happens to be one of the strangest-looking vehicles ever made.
Basically, he combined a military truck and a Jeep.
Called Dhabiyan, the monstrous 10-wheel vehicle is based on the Oshkosh M1075 military truck with a Jeep Wrangler annexed to it as a driver cabin. It is powered by a 600hp, 15.2-liter, 6-cylinder Caterpillar C15 diesel engine, weighs a whopping 24 tonnes and measures 10,8m in length, 2.5 meters in width, and 3.2 meters in height.
