The Hummer H1 is a bit of cult classic these days, and although the Hummer brand is long gone, there are still ways to own the military SUV for civilian use. However, Mil-Spec has a different idea for the civilian Humvee.
The company, based in Detroit, Michigan, with a manufacturing footprint in Wichita, Kansas, will take the Humvee and transform it into a powerful, more luxurious SUV. It begins with a 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel V8, which delivers 500 horsepower and 1,000 pound-feet of torque. An Allison six-speed transmission sends power to all four wheels, and the SUV will scoot from 0-60 mph in just 6.8 seconds.
If that’s not enough, Mil-Spec also offers Stage 2 and Stage 3 packages.
To further modernize things, the company remanufactures and powder coats the chassis, and covers the exterior in matte Kevlar-coated body. Inside, an array of materials cover the cockpit. Aluminum, leather, duck canvas, and waterproof vinyl mesh with metal trim and other accents. Everything is power for the driver’s convenience and the JL Audio system also includes a backup camera.
And the price for all of the goodies rings in at $218,499 for the launch edition. Those looking for variety will also have the chance to select different body styles, too. Mil-Spec will build the Humvee in two- and four-door variations, hardtops, slant-backs, wagons, and pickups.
