We said in our review of the Hummer H3 that it can really do with a little more power, but by a little more we meant maybe a 5.0-litre V8 or even a V6. But being American, General Motors has decided to fit a H3 with a 7.0-litre V8 from the Corvette Z06.
Dubbed the Hummer H3R concept, the car is expected at the Detriot Motor Show early next year (and we will be there). There is no official word on whether or not the concept will see the production line, but smaller V8 versions of the H3 are already available in the US.
The 376kW 7.0-litre V8 will more than double the power output of the standard five-cylinder 180kW H3. The H3R also receives minor exterior modifications such as the bonnet scoop to show-off its credentials.
In the meantime, we can expect the 220kW 5.3-litre V8 H3 Alpha to find its way to Australia next year.
