As if we needed another reason not to wind up on the wrong side of the law in Texas, this 700-horsepower Hummer H2 with 28-inch rims clinches it. An unnamed Texas sheriff commissioned GeigerCars based in Europe to build the black-and-white beast. It's powered by a 7.0L supercharged V8 making the aforementioned Texas-sized allotment of 700 horses. You can see that the suspension's been lowered and tightened up to handle the extra power and larger eight-pot stoppers have been installed. The bigger brakes will be put to the test trying to arrest the motion of those one-piece chrome 28-inch rims after they've reached the H2's terminal velocity of 155 electronically-limited miles per hour.

      "For those of you who have never been to Texas, there are many areas where you have long distances with no sigificant population and many chases end up going off-road through rough terrain. We have eight counties bigger than Delaware and Rhode Island, and one larger than Connecticut. Of those eight, 5 have less than 10,000 people, so there are many remote, rough sections to patrol. "

      And a H2 with 28 inch wheels and performance street tires, allows you to go off-road in rough terrain how?

      Who is in charge of this project I wonder? I hope it is privately owned by the un-named deputy. If this was a department overseen purchase, I have a major question. Why would they have a German company engineer an American performance vehicle. We need to stop selling ourselves short as Americans. Everything we do is outsourced, sub-contracted or contracted out of the good USA. Not only are Americans best suited to engineer an American police vehicle based on an American manufacturer's vehicle, but Americans can probably build a better Porsche!!! Take that Germany!

      (PS- I, ss one of the few self proclaimed "real experts" on aftermarket automotive performance in the USA, would also have chosen a more durable finish on $10,000 wheels, like silver or powdercoat. Not only is it more durable for commercial work/police work, but it would have saved about $2000.. thats USD for all the American businessmen leaning on and weining off, of overseas labor and old ideas that infactuate us because of a different country name. Pride is the key. Pride is the problem.

      When tax money pays for a police hummer (with rims), it is a sign of the end of the world.

      Um, how does an employee of a county afford such a thing? And if the county is paying for it, how is nobody upset at such excessiveness?

      Hummers are awesome, but its stupid to waste so much money just for an expensive police car.
