Sheikh builds ridiculous 10-wheel hybrid truck out of Jeep Wrangler and giant military vehicle
A WEALTHY Sheikh has created the Frankenstein of motors, taking parts from a number of vehicles to build this 10-wheeled beast.
Known as the “Dhabiyan”, the giant truck was built using sections of a Jeep Wrangler, Dodge Dart and the rig of an Oshkosh M1075 military truck.
The ridiculous creation is the brainchild of Dubai Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, well known for sharing pictures of his outlandish car collection on social media.
According to his Instagram account, he purchased the former US military transporter before stripping it back and adding the Wrangler on top as the driver compartment.
Dubbed the “largest SUV in the world”, it also uses the rear bumper of a Dodge Dart saloon and even headlights from Ford.
It stands an incredible 3.2metres tall, is 10.8metres long and 2.5metres wide – meaning parking would be a total nightmare.
The Dhabiyan weighs in at around 24 tonnes, largely thanks to its tough military frame.
And a vehicle that size needs an engine just as enormous.
It still boasts the original 15.2-litre six-cylinder diesel capable of 600bhp.
