Awesome Woodcraft builds some amazing miniature wood vehicles. In this video, they take on the biggest SUV they could think of, the boxy, gas-guzzling Hummer H1. The detailed model includes wheels that turn and steer, a spring suspension, and a hinged hood and doors.
THE BEST Suv
The production Grand Wagoneer is impressively close to the concept. The big 3-row SUV is the pinnacle of luxury for the Jeep brand. Powered by a 6.4L V8 making 471 hp, it features Nappa or Palermo leather seating, real wood and aluminum trim, air suspension, a 19- or 23-speaker McIntosh audio system, and tech for days.
The GLS 600 sits at the apex of SUV luxury. Its V8 biturbo engine and 48-volt system can launch it from 0-to-60 mph in 4.8 sec., while its passengers enjoy a refined ride. Creature comforts include Burmester audio, heated and ventilated Nappa leather seats, a cabin fragrance system, and even climate-controlled cupholders.
Off-road experts Legacy Overland started with a German Army 1990 Mercedes-Benz G250D, restoring it with a full mechanical rebuild, and modernizing it with Bilstein shocks, a military-style snorkel, LED lighting, a custom leather interior, air conditioning, and more. The custom Boxwood Green paint brings it all together.
The ultimate incarnation of the iconic AM General Hummer H1. The satin-kevlar coated custom truck packs a 500 hp Duramax turbo-diesel engine that makes 1000 lb-ft. of torque, rugged off-road gear, and a completely bespoke interior that blends utility and luxury.
A very special way to wrap up the last-gen Land Rover Defender, this model packs a 400 hp 5.0L V8 engine, an 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox, Recaro leather seats, and does 0-to-60 in 5.6 sec. Limited to just 150 vehicles, and sadly none of them are headed to the US.
We recently hit the road from Palm Springs to test drive Land Rover’s new mid-size SUV. We were duly impressed with the styling, handling, and comfort of the Velar, which offers a smooth ride, slick new tech, off-road capabilities, and much more. Read our full review on 95octane.
Currently available in Europe as the G500 4×4², this beastly off-roader is heading to the US in 2017. The $200K+ SUV has 17.2″ of ground clearance, 39″ fording depth, articulating axles,a 416 hp biturbo V8, and the sort of luxury interior we’d expect from Mercedes.
