A similar one was owned by a Mallu/B-Town Movie director sometime before in Chennai Who currently drives a Magma Red SL500. Is this the same ??

Default Crazy ?

The quotes from the article to the picture above:

"Speaking to Mangalorean.com Dr. Prasad said he was fascinated by the power of Hummer. "This Hummer has a monster of engine churning out 6600 BHP (Most powerful automobile in India -A Volvo B7R passenger bus has only 4500 BHP). This is delivered by a V-8 engine which only Range Rover has in its class," he said. V engines are fitted in only muscle cars. In India only Hindustan Contessa had a scaled down V -6 engine."

Is it even remotely possible?

"The Hummer can cruise at a speed of 120 miles per hour effortlessly and if need be it could attain a speed of 200 miles per hour, but unfortunately India does not have a highway that can take that speed. Considering the state of highways in Shirady Ghat and Mangalore Udupi stretch the Hummer was the right choice" says Dr. Prasad.

And this???
A Hummer doing 200 Mph is known to exist only in Mars maybe...
What were these auto journos thinking ?

The indian railways could have used a hummer to pull the trains instead of the diesel locomotives which produce around 5000 bhp.

Someone should introduce him to Team-BHP! However, if he's very adamant about 'his facts', he'd start getting infractions in a few days and then be banned by the time people are aware of his existence!

How can someone make such uninformed statements?

This Morning Spotted a spanking new white Hummer H2 with For Registration plates parked near Barista Cafe, Near Jayanagar Telephone Exchange. I was late to office hence could not take pics even i had my camera in the car.. I guess we would need Mr.Manish ashrani's help for pics !

Manish Bhai: Please do the needful.
