Hummer 6×6 “Goliath for Glory” Is a Demolition Racer Rendering

Digital artist Timothy Adry Emmanuel has reached his 1000th Instagram post. And to mark that occasion, he reached out to “Mrs. Adry53” for ideas. What emerged is a six-wheeled Hummer that looks like nothing on this planet.

The original Hummer is one of the most rugged-looking 4x4s America has ever produced. And that’s because it’s not your average SUV, starting life as the iconic US army transport vehicle and later entering civilian life.

We still can’t believe it was possible to buy and drive the truck that won Iraq down to your local McDonalds. H1s are quite collectible, and we’ve seen a few even being customized. The most extreme one I can think of is converted for drag racing, but rendering artists have taken Hummer performance to another level, one which is not plausible in the real world.

Adry’s significant other, Glory Sanggor, didn’t actually tell him to make a Hummer 6×6. She just wanted to see if “poor man’s green” could work as a color on this boxy design, perhaps because it has the proportions of a house. It also has that rough exterior look, like the durable finishes Predator Inc does for its expensive H1 projects.

6×6 conversions are pretty normal in the trucking world, following the excellent lead set by the Velociraptor. However, this one is backward. Instead of two axles at the back, Adry’s Hummer has two at the front with slightly smaller and narrower tires than the back. The idea here was obviously to copy the design of the Tyrrell P34, a legendary race car which had this pioneering design for aero reasons.

The partial F1 look also gives the Hummer a front wing. However, the engine is supposed to be a giant V8 with a substantial supercharger stack, and side exhausts (zoomies) like on a gasser. Meanwhile, the tires seem solid, but have aero disks, supposedly cooling the brakes.

We don’t know what kind of wild world this belongs in, but if a racing game ever allows you to play such a 6×6, we’d buy it in an instant. As far RPM Potential (real project in the making), we’d give this a low score of 1/10. It’s almost impossible for somebody to engineer the steering system for two axles like that, and there wouldn’t be any commercial benefits involved either.
