HUMMER, the world’s most iconic boy’s toy, has converted the new right-hand drive H3 into the ultimate gadget for grown ups – a life-sized remote controlled car that definitely won’t be available in your local toyshop. The hardy on/off road vehicle has been converted to make life a little less dull – those lucky enough to have a play, will experience the unrivalled agility and off-road capability of the new H3 from the palm of their hand.


Engineer Dr James Brighton from Cranfield University transformed the HUMMER H3 into a remote controlled vehicle to create the ultimate boy’s toy: “Converting the HUMMER H3 into the super-sized remote control car took a month to complete but we’ve had lots of fun in the process.

“The results are clear – all controllers will be amazed by the handling ability – the best any radio controlled vehicle has had to date. The vehicle is capable of climbing a 407mm vertical wall, traversing a 40% side slope and operating in up to 610mm of water – imagine the fun.”

Steve Catlin from HUMMER comments:
“HUMMER is like no other – as the ultimate workhorse it is built for action and can handle off-roading with ease but also has a unique, iconic style.

“What better way to show off the definitive big boy’s toy than converting the HUMMER H3 into a remote controlled car?”
