Default The Baddest Of Them All!!!!

This is a new Hummer which has been issued to the Texas sheriffs....

The car, a H2 tuned by Geiger Cars based in Europe, churns out 700 bhp. It's powered by a 7.0L supercharged V8. The bigger brakes will be put to the test trying to arrest the motion of those one-piece chrome 28-inch rims after they've reached the H2's terminal velocity of 155 electronically-limited miles per hour.












Thanks

7 lit engine, 700 BHP!!!! I suspect these monsters could do 200 MPH quite comfortably if not electronically limited, although I wouldn't want to foot the fuel bills. The question in my mind is, are these vehicles stable while cornering or swerving even at the limited stop speed of 155 mph or less? The ground clearance looks quite large, and to my non-expert eyes, it seems that they can topple. So are these intended to be chase vehicles?

The ground clearance in this car has been reduced and the car lowered by Geiger Cars to help it go round the curves. It might also be worth keepin in mind that this car would be used for wide, long Texas freeways(US)/ highways(India)/motorways(UK). And these roads do not possess much sharp corners, less cornerning concerns. And i would think that Hummer and a tuner like Geiger would bear that in mind at design stage.
