NEW DELHI: In a jaw-dropping display of automotive extravagance, the United Arab Emirates’ Rainbow Sheikh, Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, has unveiled his latest creation, an oversized Hummer H1, aptly named the ‘X3’.

Towering over the streets and setting a new standard for road-going vehicles, the Hummer H1 ‘X3’ is nothing short of astonishing.

For most, a regular Hummer H1 would be considered large enough, but for the Rainbow Sheikh, known for his affinity for oversized vehicles, “too small” is a term that doesn’t apply. With a staggering net worth of approximately $20 billion and ownership of four car museums in the UAE, Sheikh Nahyan has a penchant for crafting gigantic versions of his favourite vehicles. Among his other colossal rides are a massive Jeep, a gargantuan Power Wagon, and a puzzling yet intriguing mystery vehicle.

The Hummer H1 “X3” earns its name by truly living up to its size. Measuring a staggering 21.6 feet tall, 46 feet long, and 19 feet wide (or 14 metres long, six metres wide, and 5.8 metres high), it is three times the size of a standard Hummer H1. Powered by individual diesel engines on each wheel, this gargantuan vehicle is fully operational and boasts four-wheel-drive capabilities.

While the interior might not perfectly mirror its colossal exterior, it does offer some surprising amenities. Equipped with a toilet and sink, the Hummer hints at possible plans to transform it into a luxurious mobile space, much like Sheikh Nahyan’s massive 1950 Power Wagon, which is designed with bedrooms akin to a hotel.

As an automobile enthusiast with an extraordinary collection of some 3,000 vehicles, each adorned with rainbows in some manner, the Rainbow Sheikh stores his prized possessions in a gigantic pyramid situated in the heart of the desert.

Currently, the Hummer H1 ‘X3’ is on exhibit at the Off-Road History Museum in Al Madam, UAE, but its colossal size is likely to catch the attention of onlookers from afar, possibly even visible from space.
