Video: Modified Hummer goes for a swim underwater

Don’t you just love it when your car can do something other cars can only dream about doing, like, say, drive underwater?

This particular modified Hummer put its ‘swimming’ skills to the test as it drove head on into a river, completely submerging itself in the process. At one point, you can’t even see the Hummer, except for the exhaust sticking out like a snorkeling tube.

We’re pretty sure that his Hummer will come in pretty handy, especially during the wet weather season when floods begin to occur regularly.

Now if only there was a way to have more cars be able to drive effortlessly underwater.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

If it were that effective, it can be used in times of natural disaster. Specially now that it seems like we are having a climate change. Rain and floods everywhere and since Hummer cars are just so powerful and flexible, it will definitely save a life or two.
