If you’re looking to boost the off-road capabilities of the already pretty capable Hummer H2 then look no further than the Hummer H2 Bomber. This customized vehicle from Germany’s Geiger Cars replaces the H2’s regular 8.5” x 20” rims and 305/60 tires with Mattracks 88M1-A1 rubber tracks on each wheel. These massive structures, 40cm wide and 150cm long, guarantee unrivaled traction on virtually any terrain.
Geiger Cars, creator of the festive-themed Christmas Hummer H2, says its H2 Bomber can handle even extreme gradients without breaking a sweat thanks to its powerful 6.2-liter V8 engine under the hood that has been upgraded to produce 398bhp at 5,700rpm and 574Nm of torque at 4,300rpm - up from 329bhp at 5,200rpm and 494Nm when it rolled off the production line. This outdoes the Mattracks-sporting Subaru WRX STI we came across late last year and is a darn sight more attractive than the strap-on tank effort from a Russian inventor.
The customization doesn’t stop where the rubber meets the road, either. The H2 Bomber is finished in matte silver, with a sunroof and extra headlights mounted on the roof, while the interior is kitted out with a Kenwood DVD drive, roof monitor with headphones and a rear-view camera including a monitor in the rear-view mirror. The vehicle can also be fitted with an LPG autogas system and a 155L fuel tank.
Geiger Cars hasn’t announced what the H2 Bomber will cost, but with the announcement in February that the Hummer brand would be shut down there probably won’t be too many of these hitting the snow-covered road. They could very well become a collector's item.
