PURE MAD­NESS

NZV8 - - WORLD NEWS -

Ever thought to your­self that a Hum­mer would make a great race car? No …? Us nei­ther, but clearly the team at US busi­ness Mil-Spec Au­to­mo­tive have. While they gen­er­ally spe­cial­ize in rough-and-tough off-road­ers, their lat­est of­fer­ing is a track-ready H1 Hum­mer. The base ve­hi­cle is a four-door con­vert­ible that has been fit­ted with cus­tom sus­pen­sion, drop­ping it down a full seven inches from stock. The H1’s in-board brakes now uti­lize six­pis­ton calipers, and, with the power the ve­hi­cle’s pack­ing, they’ll need them. The stock 6.6-litre Du­ra­max diesel has been wound up to pro­duce 800hp and 1500lb·ft of torque. Ap­par­ently, while there’s no mass-pro­duc­tion plans as yet, Mil-Spec has said that if some­one wants one enough, the team will be happy to make it hap­pen … Any­one keen?
