The most expensive remote controlled car – A full sized Hummer
Even before we could bid adieu to the Hummer H2, its time to welcome the efforts of Dr. James Brighton from Cranfield University who has transformed the Hummer H3 into a remote controlled vehicle. Using the real thing (right-hand drive H3) instead of downscaled version, this “ultimate boy’s toy”, took about a month to be transformed. As Dr. James says “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, traverse a 40% side slope and operate in up to 610mm of water – imagine the fun.”

The Hummer H3 is available to order now from £26,495 ($53,000) on the road.
A TOY STORY- LIKE NOTHING ELSE
- HUMMER H3 converted into man-sized remote control car -
“…we don’t stop playing because we get old;
we get old because we stop playing.”
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, traverse a 40% side slope and operate 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?”
