A sheik, who holds the world record for the largest collection of 4 × 4 cars, has now built the planet’s largest Hummer.
The 46 foot (14 m) long, 20 foot (6 m) wide and 21.6 foot (6.6 m) tall monster truck dwarfs ordinary Hummers and looks ridiculously large in comparison.
The gas-guzzling giant will run on four diesel engines and have a toilet and sink on the first of its two floors.
Bilgal Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), ordered the vehicle for his Sharjah Off Road History Museum.
The Sheikh, a billionaire member of the Emirati royal family, boasts the Guinness World Record with a collection of 718 4 × 4 models – meaning that if he drove one a day, it would take him almost two years to use each of them.
His latest trip, the so-called Hummer H1 X3, was driven to the museum on a public road, to the amazement of the locals.
Built on the frame of the US Army LARC-LX amphibious truck with steel hull and capable of a top speed of 32 km / h.
The museum says it is “three times larger than a normal Hummer H1 in scale and 27 times by volume”.
It did not reveal how the environmental cost of Sheik’s latest toys.
The interior is spread over two floors, where work is still being done on both.
The other features a majlis (a private place where guests and friends of the house are received and entertained) with a 360-degree view. It also contains the steering cab.
The X3 will be the latest addition to the Sharjah Museum – the UAE’s third most populous city – located 30 km north of Dubai.
The attraction is based on the sheikh’s love of off-road vehicles.
