Well, it now looks like no one can pimp a Hummer quite like a Texas sheriff can. Not content with his sedate cruiser, this particular sheriff had his personal vehicle, a Hummer H2, sent over to German Geiger for a special outfitting.
This is what they did to it: they replaced the engine a supercharged V8, with 7.0 liters of displacement, producing a peak of 700hp and 904 Nm of torque. This can propel the 3-ton tank from 0-60 in 6.5 seconds, and it’s top speed is electronically limited to 250km/h or about 153mph. Then, they gave it one-piece forged chrome king-size 10Jx28 wheels with Kumho 325/35 R 28 tires.
In addition, the H2 suspension and brakes have been replaced with more robust units and the ride height lowered by some 105 millimeters, with much firmer damper settings. Sport sway bars reduce body roll in fast corners. The high-performance brake system with 380-millimeter perforated and vented discs and eight-piston fixed calipers on the front axle delivers enormous fade-free stopping power.
The car will be sent back to the US, where it’ll be outfitted with Police communication equipment, and should soon be ready for our enterprising Sheriff to enjoy.
