This behemoth of a vehicle is the brainchild of a company called Mil-Spec Automotive, based in Detroit. The whole ethos of this company is to create “re-envisioned vehicles” with a “military pedigree.” Well, they’re certainly ticking all the right boxes with this one. Aptly named #006, as it’s the sixth custom Hummer the company has made, this looks more like a tank than a car. However, it all started with a 1996 four-door H1… They just totally stripped it down and rebuilt the entire machine.
Built Again, But Better
While Mil-Spec Automotive may have put their Hummer H1 back together again, this was certainly no ‘Humpty Dumpty’ job. They’ve replaced the floor with a welded aluminum one (perfect for keeping out zombies), and swapped out the body panels with specially made aerospace grade ones. Whatever weight didn’t need to be there was stripped out, and then they ensured every aspect of the vehicle was toughened up. They’ve swapped the engine out with a 6.6-liter version from a 2006 Hummer to provide an impressive 500bhp. More than enough to escape a horde of zombies.
Of course, none of this comes cheap. Their sixth custom Hummer will cost you a total of $295,000 – which is no small sum. However, Mil-Spec Automotive have said that they are only building a total of 12 of these monsters, so we can see why the price tag is so high. Personally, we’re waiting for the one they’re going to call #007… For obvious reasons.
If you ever find yourself stuck in a field, surrounded by zombies, then this is the car you’re going to want to have on your side. Can we even call it a car? We prefer ‘beast.’
