290K Hummer H1: Mil-Spec Automotive’s Bespoke Beauty
MSA Completes First Customer Vehicle
Mil-Spec Automotive (MSA) recently teased its first Hummer H1 customer vehicle and has now officially revealed all the juicy details about the beast. It’s called #002, as it follows MSA’s Launch Edition press Hummer H1 truck that was released in May. Check out some of the details and the price tags attached to such a truly bespoke truck. (And what in the world does bespoke mean? Bespoke is fancy for custom-made, ordered before it’s made, personalized, or tailored. Now we all know.)
The owner of the Hummer H1 #002 wasn’t satisfied with a simple Launch Edition, which could have been ordered for $218,499. Instead, he (or she) added on $72,338 of optional equipment, and we surprisingly have a breakdown of these options. The four-door hardtop slant-back cab configuration added $19,999. We think this is cool as can be, but we’d also be interested in the four-door hardtop pickup configuration. The body-color Kevlar texture coating is called Deep Sky Black; you simply can’t go wrong with black. Check out these other color options: Desert Tan, Moon-Light Grey, Denim Blue, and After-Burner Grey. We’d maybe choose the After-Burner Grey for our pickup.
The Executive Interior Package 1A, for $21,999, allowed the owner to work directly with the MSA design department to work up the bespoke-iest interior imaginable. The key word for the interior is leather, as several textures of black leather combine for a comfortable and classy look.
The customer selected various exterior options, including a Heavy Duty Brush Guard ($1,749), Heavy Duty Rear Step Bumper ($1,249), Aluminum Offset Snorkel ($699), Heavy Duty Front Light Mounting Bar ($599) and 60-inch Overhead Light Bar ($2,499, although we seem to see two 30-inch bars), Power Folding Running Boards ($1,949), and a couple of packages. The Bold Body and Tire Package 3B ($5,499) included increasing the track width by 8 inches and adding 3.5-inch fender flares to cover the massive 38-inch Nitto Ridge Grappler tires and 20-inch wheels. The Bumper Pull Tow Package 7B ($599) incorporated a reverse camera and basic bumper pull capabilities.
The customer opted out of some additional performance options (like Wilwood 6-piston brakes), but did splurge for air-ride suspension and air-ride heated/cooled, massage-equipped, fully adjustable seats ($10,999) as well as 8-way adjustable shocks ($4,499). The custom suspension allows for 7 inches of adjustable travel. If you look carefully at the front-end pictures, you can see that in one shot the H1 is aired up, and in the other it’s aired down. Some may not appreciate this type of suspension, but we imagine it could make for a pretty smooth ride.
The grand total for the Mil-Spec Automotive Hummer H1 #002 is $290,837—an unimaginable chunk of change for us common folk, but an assumedly manageable output for those who are more bespoke-ish than us.
