Hummers were one of the biggest cultural cornerstones of the 2000s, and seeing one cruise down the street always managed to turn heads - and don’t even get us started on the humongous hummer limos.
Brace yourself because we have found something even bigger. Motor lovers, feast your eyes on this massive Hummer H1 which is 21-feet tall - or six meters - and is bigger than most apartments.
This means the unique four wheeler is around three times the size of a normal Hummer.
Known as the Hummer H1 X3, the oversized vehicle belongs to Sheikh Hamad Al Nahyan of Dubai, and despite your initial assumptions about whether it actually works, it drives just like a regular-sized Hummer - even though it weighs 60,000 kilos.
To put into perspective just how huge this beast of a car is, each tire - which costs $25,000 each - are roughly 7 feet 2 inches tall, which means they tower over most NBA players. First overall pick for 2023, Victor Wembanyama of the San Antonio Spurs, measures 7 feet 4 inches tall and is tied with Boban Marjanović as the tallest active NBA player.
Building the car also takes a very long time, as Supercar Blondie reports each door takes around six months to build.
And getting inside the car takes a relatively long time too, as you have to climb a flight of stairs located underneath the body to get on board.
With that said, you would definitely get the bang for your buck as the car has more than one floor with a bathroom - including a sink - a kitchen and a five-star hotel-style lounge room.
There’s even an engine room and speaking of which, the engine powers the jumbo car 1,000 horsepower 32 km/h (20 mph).
But before you search the internet to get your own, this Hummer was a commission especially for Sheikh Hamad, who is actually known as the ‘Rainbow Sheikh’. He’s a huge motorhead who has a fleet of hundreds of cars, including an entire fleet of vintage Mercedes E Class vehicles with one in every colour.
The car has been a huge hit online with dozens of jokes about its size. “Good luck finding a parking spot,” one person quipped.
While another Facebook user said: “Perfect for a zombie apocalypse escape vehicle, except for the enormous amount of gas it would need. Parking must be a nightmare.”
A third person quipped: “Perfect for zombie apocalypse.”
“That's good for Resident Evil,” said another zombie fan.
