This ex-FBI Hummer H1 was just sold for over $200k
This is your chance to get some of your tax dollars back, I guess
This is a 2006 Hummer H1 K12 Wagon, formerly owned by the FBI, which means we're essentially looking at a Bureau-issued vehicle, based on the civilian version of a military vehicle. Nice. This Hummer, one of only 36 K-series H1s ever built, was marked sold by Mecum during the Auction Kissimmee event taking place as we speak.
The H1 was introduced in 1992 as a road legal vehicle based on the military 'Humvee' (HMMWV, High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle) and and this example is classified as a KSCS, a fleet/commercial vehicle, originally made to order for the FBI and heavily modified by Predator Inc., a Florida-based tuner.
The FBI spent over $170,000 on this vehicle so look at this way, the buyer got at least some of their tax dollars back. All jokes aside, it was fitted with a new performance aluminum radiator and intercooler, a heavy-duty winch kit and a two-inch lift kit, infrared cameras, dual batteries with a waterproof charging kit, an urban assault rack, a new LED light bar with 20-inch guard rails.
Inside, you'll find Recaro heated seats and an Alpine stero system, whereas under the hood beats a factory-spec 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V8 mated to a six-speed automatic by Allison Transmission.
Only four of the 36 K-Series Hummers ever produced was painted in charcoal metallic and this is one of them, so it is rare, and it is also in good condition, with only 22,500 miles on the clock. Mecum estimated to fetch between $220,000 and $260,000 and while it is already marked as "sold", they haven't actually confirmed the final price. What do you reckon?
