Photos of a customized Hummer H2 convertible popped up online. The ridiculous machine has seven leather seats and various other "necessities."
Leave it to the United Arab Emirates to remind us that not everyone is affected equally by the economic crisis. This highly-customized Hummer H2 convertible was spotted in front of Abu Dhabi's Emirates Palace Hotel.
Mods to this monstrosity include custom paint job with matching red leather interior, which seems to be an odd choice for the gulf coast city surrounded by desert. Hopefully, there is some innovative seat-cooling system installed as well. The truck has seven seats, and chrome wheels set in wider arches. Also pictured is what appears to be an aftermarket fiberglass hood scoop with integrated Hella lights.
Good thing it's fiberglass; wouldn't want to add more weight.
Just as unnecessarily lavish is the hotel itself, which opened in 2005. Marble floors, a large golden dome, gold touches in many of the rooms, and a vast green lawn brought the construction cost of this building to $3 billion. Stays in the smallest room, a 592 square foot space (55 m2), starts at $400 nightly. The 7,319 square foot (680 m2) Palace Grand Suite costs upwards of $11,500 per night, and comes with a limousine, multiple 61-inch plasma screens, raised jacuzzi, and butler.
Maybe he'll clean the sand off your H2, if you ask.
