You Won’t Believe This ‘Hummer HX’ Was Once A Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Among Jeep’s lineup, Wrangler is perhaps the only one that’s closely related to military. Though so, it doesn’t really have that modern day military-look that some military enthusiasts yearn for. This is where California-based US Specialty Vehicles can help. The outfit has the knack in turning regular vehicles into military-inspired examples, such as the one you see here, dubbed Rhino XT. A Jeep Wrangler Unlimited originally, it went under the knife which drastically transform its look, turning it into a Hummer HX. Granted, the HX never saw the light of production and it was not exactly a military transport to begin with (it was a concept and stayed that way), but you can’t deny that this faux Hummer HX oozes with thick military flavor.

Red Bull Latest Event Vehicle Looks Set For Any Post-Apocalyptic Party

Think Mad Max kind of chaos and think parties. What comes to mind? Fire-spewing cannon, spiked-covered vehicle with bulldozer blade, and of course, armored vehicles, along with more sinister stuff like human-skin drums and trumpets fashioned out of human bones. The Red Bull “Armored” Event Vehicle you see here does not have fire-spewing cannon, neither is it covered in spikes nor does it has a bulldozer blade fitted, but its angular “armored” looks should nevertheless, make it more than appropriate for some ‘civilized’ post-apocalyptic parties – that’s if civilized is still an accepted behavior in any given post-apocalyptic scenario.

Marshall Motoart’s RZR 1000 is the “Superleggera” of the Off-road World

We are accustom to custom cars, trucks and the usuals, but a custom off-road sport vehicle? Well, that’s kind of unheard of. Though, I am sure there are custom ATVs and sport vehicles out there. We have no illusion about that, but the Marshall Motoart “Superleggera” RZR 1000 is hands down the best looking, if not the best looking custom sport vehicle. This “Superleggera” of the off-road world is almost a ground-up built with only the motor, differential, knuckles and some power steering parts were carried over from the once stock RZR 1000. Continue reading Marshall Motoart’s RZR 1000 is the “Superleggera” of the Off-road World
