If you’re going to look for inspiration to create vehicles based off of proven platforms, you need look no further than the military. Military vehicles are put through rigorous testing, and then even more rigorous use. If a vehicle can not only survive but overcome that kind of use and abuse, then you know that the platform is solid. That’s the philosophy behind Mil-Spec Automotive. They base their vehicles off of proven military vehicles, and then market those cars to the general public.
Their Launch Edition #005 is based on the Hummer H1 and is limited to just 12 commissioned vehicles for 2018-2019. The looks of the #005 are easily recognizable, but the Spartan qualities of a military vehicle are decidedly absent. The interior is completely bespoke and comes with upgrades like backup cameras, security consoles, and a marine grade JL Audio entertainment system. The #005 is powered by a Duramax 6.6L LBZ turbo diesel engine. With 500 horsepower and 1,000 lb-ft of torque, you’ll have plenty of power to play with. And to match that power, the underbody is protected by ceramic, so no worries going into the back country. The vehicle also boasts LED lighting, a heavy-duty set of bumpers, and a set of 18-inch Toyo Open Country M/T tires on Pro Comp Series wheels.
You’ll hand out nearly $250,000 to get your hands on a #005, but it’s already proven that it’s worth every penny.
