The world’s largest Hummer H1 is a two-story building on wheels
Car enthusiast Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan owns the world’s largest Hummer H1, and it’s not even close, according to a report from India time reveals.
Standing at 21 feet tall and housing two stories inside, the incredible machine is practically a rolling house on wheels. The fully drivable vehicle, called the Hummer H1 X3, features a staircase, a guest area and even a toilet.
The truck will not be in regular use on the road and will be on display at the Sharjah Off-Road History Museum in the United Arab Emirates – so environmentalists can breathe a sigh of relief.
The massive machine is 46 feet long, 20 feet wide and 21.6 feet tall, making it three times larger than a normal Hummer H1 and 27 times bulkier, according to the museum.
Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, also known as Rainbow Sheikh, is a billionaire member of the Emirati royal family who holds the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of 4×4 vehicles in the world, with a total of 718 vehicles.
The Hummer H1 X3 runs on four diesel engines and can reach a top speed of 19 mph. It was built using the chassis of a U.S. Army LARC-LX steel-hulled amphibious cargo vehicle. The interior of the vehicle is still in development, but the first floor includes a toilet and sink, while the second floor has a private guest area.
The massive Hummer H1 isn’t the first oversized 4×4 in the Rainbow Sheik collection. It also has a Replica Dodge Power Wagon which houses four air-conditioned bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room, a bathroom and a patio.
The Sharjah Off Road History Museum is located 30 km north of Dubai. If more massive trucks are added to the collection, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it listed on Airbnb as one of those quirky getaways. They just have to make sure the guests don’t leave with their guesthouses.
While General Motors is busy rolling out the new EV Hummer to reduce its carbon footprint, Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan has essentially created a monster truck version of the Hummer H1. It’s a marvelous piece of machinery that will sit proudly in the Sheikh’s vast collection of 4x4s.
