In a striking twist of automotive nostalgia, a 2009 Hummer H2, a vehicle that never officially launched in India, has become the dream SUV for many, despite its notorious reputation for guzzling fuel. This particular beast, residing in Kurla East, Mumbai, is a third-owner gem that has cruised for 40,000 kilometers.
Available for a hefty INR 85 lakh, the H2 is a dazzling display of power and style. Under its hood roars a 6.0 L V8 petrol engine, boasting a mighty 325 BHP. Though its insurance has expired, this machine commands attention with its signature yellow color, turning every street into a runway.
The interior is a bespoke paradise, featuring full custom diamond-stitched furnishings and a suite of modern amenities like an Android Screen, a 360-degree camera, and a BOSE sound system with speakers and woofers, ensuring every journey is an experience in luxury.
But it’s not just about the looks. This Hummer comes with custom LED headlights, indicators, and fog lights, brand new tyres, and fancy numbers to add to its exclusive charm. It has been completely restored and serviced, ready to take on any road or lack thereof.
The transmission system is a robust 4L65-E four-speed automatic, perfect for handling the H2’s bulk and power. However, potential buyers might want to note the vehicle’s infamous fuel economy – a mere 4 kmpl, staying true to the Hummer’s legacy of low fuel efficiency.
The Hummer H2 itself is a legend in the world of SUVs. Produced by Hummer and built in the AM General facility under contract from General Motors from 2002 until 2009, it’s a vehicle that commands respect. Based on a modified GMT820 GM three-quarter-ton pickup truck in the front and a half-ton 1500 frame in the rear, it boasts features like tri-zone climate controls, leather upholstery, heated seats, an advanced sound system, and much more.
So, for those in Mumbai who’ve always dreamt of owning a piece of automotive history, this Hummer H2 might just be the ultimate catch. Just remember to budget for the fuel!
