GeigerCars is a German company that imports and also refines American cars and their most recent project is a Hummer H2 armed with Mattracks rubber tracks which looks like a bomber and it’s also called like that. In contrast to the regular wheels with their 8,5 x 20″ rims wrapped in 305/60 tires, engineers from Geiger could install Mattracks 88M1-A1 rubber tracks at each wheel that guarantee unrivaled traction on probably any type of terrain.
These rubber tracks are 40 cm and 150 cm long and thanks to the powerful 8 cylinder engine that develops 398 HP and 574 Nm of torque this Hummer H2 is as powerful as a tank. The interior of the GeigerCars Hummer H2 Bomber was also customized and finished in matte silver with extra headlights on the roof and lettering printed in an army style.
The car also features a sunroof and a navigation system with a DVD-drive from Kenwood, a roof monitor with headphones and a rear view camera with a monitor in the rear view mirror. GeigerCars could also install an LPG Autogas system with 155 litre fuel tank and several other enhancements that will increase the fun factor and please any customer.
The German tuners from CFC or CarFilmComponents decided to pimp out the Hummer H2 and released a tuning package that they claim to be pretty sexy. The car’s exterior is completely chromed out after the guys from CFC wrapped it in chrome vinyl and the exterior is complemented with tinted windows, a carbon wrap for the bonnet and some CFC stickers.
The car’s wheels will probably attract even more attention after CFC installed massive 28″ TunerShop light alloy wheels which are wrapped in 325/35 R28 tires from Kumho. The CFC Hummer H2 also features a new exhaust with four tail pies, new lights, chrome side guards and Lambo style doors which are pretty weird for car like this if you would ask us.
The car’s interior is also pimped out with 17 LCD screens, HD TV, A DVD player, a powerful 1.360W RMS sound system, a mini bar, seats covered in black leather with contrasting yellow stitching, a new sofa and some yellow trim on the dashboard to match the stitching.
CFC also decided to make some useful modifications to the Hummer H2 and they tweaked the car’s engine to get some extra power from it, taking the engine to 480 HP.
General Motors announced today they will halt production of Hummers at the end of this week until Chinese regulators will approve the brand’s sale to Sichuan Tengzhong. Nick Richards, Hummer spokesman, declared today that as soon as the acquisition deal is completed the production of Hummer H3 and H3T models will resume.
Hummer spokesman hasn’t said what issues remain that the Chinese government wants to be resolved but he confirmed that the US government has approved all regulatory issues. After this deal is completed Hummers will still be produced at GM’s plant from Shreveport, LA until 2011 with an option to extend for sourcing through 2012.
The Chinese buyers will also get an additional diesel version of the Hummer H3 in 2011 for global export markets.
Even though Hummer’s situation is still not finalized and the company’s sales are down more than 50 percent, General Motors decided to restart production of the 2010 Hummer H3 and H3T at the Shreveport, LA plant. People are still buying Hummers and the two H3 models are the most the most wanted.
A Hummer spokesman recently said that the 2010s should arrive in dealerships in December and these cars will be available in two new colors and will also feature the biofuel capability. The Hummer sale from General Motors to Tengzhong isn’t officially finalized but it will probably be done as soon as the Chinese authorities approve this transaction.
Until then, the 2010 versions of the Hummer H3s are back into production and customers will be able to buy them from next month.
Hummer, “made in China” – that would sound a bit odd right? Well, it was going to happen sooner or later because General Motors wanted to get rid of Hummer for a while. The company may sign an agreement with Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery when the representatives of the Chinese auto company will come to Detroit in the upcoming days.
The deal will be subjected to both US and Chinese regulatory bodies and since Tengzhong has come to terms with government officials there won’t be any problems with the sale. Hummer will keep its business in the United States and all the 3,000 jobs but Tengzhong still wants to move some of the Hummer production to China, in Chengdu.
The official announcement will be made only after a definitive agreement is finalised between General Motors and Tengzhong.
Hummer‘s future is uncertain for 11 over months and General Motors postponed their decision on its Hummer brand for a few weeks. Troy Clarke, GM’s president of North America said that they are trying to sell the Hummer brand and there are several parties really interested in buying the automaker. Clarke also said that General Motors is still studying whether Hummer will be sold or shutdown altogether.
In June 2008 GM confirmed they would like to sell Hummer and this move went into urgency when former CEO Rick Wagoner met with the US Treasury Department on Feb. 17, 2009. If they have interested customers i’d say GM should sell Hummer as soon as possible.
