  • Mil-Spec Launch Edition #002 Hummer H1

    Mil-Spec Automotive (MSA) has quickly made a name for itself by building luxurious SUVs based on a reimagined Hummer H1. On Wednesday, MSA revealed its second custom creation based on the H1: the #002 Launch Edition. Fittingly, the #002 follows the #001 Launch Edition, but the follow-up SUV features a slant-back roof design that's more to our liking than the open-top #001. It is finished in a matte black Kevlar texture. The #002 Launch Edition also boasts equipment MSA never planned to offer. Since this is a bespoke vehicle, the customer specified that #002 would have a unique air-ride...

    Tupac's Hummer H1 just sold for $206,531

    Why would someone pay over $206,000 for a Hummer H1? Celebrity provenance certainly helps. Tupac's 1996 Hummer H1 first hit the auction block in 2016, when it sold for a hefty $337,000. But that buyer welched on the deal and the modified H1 went back on the block and just sold for $206,531, to be...

  • 2009 Hummer H2

This is the plant where AM General built civilian models like the Hummer H2 for General Motors prior to the automaker’s bankruptcy and eventual demise of the Hummer brand late last decade.
