German tuner Geiger does bad things with the classic Martini livery

Geiger Hummer H3

We thought there was no car so awful that it couldn’t be rescued by a Martini stripe paintjob. We were wrong.

This is the Geiger Hummer H3, and it’s bad. Geiger – the German firm that seems to specialise in tuning things that really don’t need tuning – has fitted a supercharger to the H3’s 5.3-litre V8, boosting power from a pitiful 300bhp to a slightly less pitiful 423bhp.

That’s good for a 0-60mph time of around seven seconds and a frankly frightening top speed of 148mph, which at least raises the possibility that you’ll be able to drive off quick enough that no one will know it was you behind the wheel.

Because, let’s be honest, with a bodykit like that and such scant disregard for classic racing liveries, you’ll want to remain as anonymous as possible.

Now share it...
