Yeah that's prob the 'new' Hummer, not the beasty 'military' designed hummer...
Ewww, 8 seris bemmers suck! sorry, had to share my opinion!
Hummers may well be cheaper because thet brought out a hummer 2, based on a GM 4x4 suv thing. Its huge, but no quite upto the coolness of the original hummer
Nah that pic just doesn't do it any justice at all. There's an 840 Ci that belongs to a bloke up the road from me, lovely car.
Infact, all 9 BMWs in my street rock, including ours
Can you get Hummers here ?
What size engines do they have ?
My dream car would probably be either the Koenigsegg, a Ferrari 360 Stradale, or a TVR Cerbera 4.5 (mashie you lucky bar steward ).
Alfa 147 GTA or BMW M3 CSL or Hartge H5.0 (M3 + V8 engine from the M5) would be more practical 'daily drivers' though. I'll Have to settle for a Seicento for now though .
Normally 6.5L V8... too big to justify the fuel bills unless your on a very large wage!
Any idea how much they cost ?
i have a few diff dream cars really
supercar: pagani zonda c12s cabrio or a tvr cerbera speed12
Big car: bentley continental t convertible
classic car: mustang shelby gt500 (in its 459cu/in glory )
right now im driving an 2003 bmw 330 convertible that im pretty chiffed with though, but i can still dream
are they by any chance bringing out a hummer with smaller engine???????
I think it would have to be an AC/Shelby Cobra
or perhaps a modified '67 Shelby GT500 just like the one from Gone in 60 Seconds.
The H3 should be out in about a year.
Hummer prices at estimate are $100,000 for the H1, $50,000 for the H2, and $30,000 for the H3.
I've got 3 dream cars that I can't ever decide between.
1 - Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII
2 - Nissan Skyline R34 GTR
3 - Toyota Supra TT
If I was MADE to chosse between the 3, I would most likely go with the Skyline though.
The original Hummer was made by American General (AMG) and that's ALL they made. A year or two ago General Motors bought out AMG and GM is now making 2 versions of the Hummer - the original (6.5L V8 Turbo Diesel) is sold strictly to the military and the H2 (6.0l V8 MFI on a Yukon undercarrage I believe) is the civilian version.
personally, i'd go for a Hamann Tuned HM5/450....
nothing like having 6.1L of V12 power under the bonnet.... though I'd have to do the trick thing with the doors like I did on my m3....
just wish they did them as a convertible....
This one will probably sound a little odd, but here goes.....
Wanna know why???? Because by the time you read my post, that car finished a 1/4mile.
Thats a few horsies....
Ferrari 355 or 360... its my aim in life to own one of these before i'm 40
I'm disappointed with the lack of modding involved on your dream cars here lads
Anyhoo, I've always had a soft spot for the Jensen S-V8 since I saw it unveiled at the Birmingham Motor show a few years back.
My main 2 dream vehicles would be a Ford/Chevy/Dodge hot rod pick-up and a 1934 Ford Hot Rod:
They'd have to be flamed too. It just ain't a rod without flames
the front of that jensen looks like a cross between a TVR and a Ford lol
I remember hearing somewhere that they do around 1 MPG on rough terrain.
me i would actually have i dunno really
id probably have a couple
one concrete lined transit with only the drivers seat & bullet proof glass all the way round for pure spl contests (driven very rarely)
& then id have sommat like a bently or somamt liek that with a totlal hidden install
i mena totall hidden as in the fasia of the headunit is tucked away in a drawer ont he dash connected to the rest of the head unit hidden someware else in the car, those hand made genesis compnents that cost like a grand in every door
