"Hello, Abu Dhabi? Yeah, this is Taste. I'm outta here." Well, you can't really blame Taste now can you? There's only so much abuse a sense can take, and the motorists of Abu Dhabi – the same gulf emirate that ordered up the gold-plated Rolls-Royce – have taken things one step too far. Several, actually.

Your eyes do not deceive you, and this is not available for rent to drive your kids to their homecoming. This custom HUMMER H2 convertible was spotted at the Emirates Palace Hotel, a location whose overdeveloped sense of opulence is rivaled only by the horrid monstrosity parked in front.

A topless HUMMER? Okay, the original H1 was available without a roof, but not with a seven-seat, red leather interior, a matching tribal pattern paint job, blistered wheel arches housing chrome wheels and what appears to be a hood scoop packed with a row of driving lights. You know, just in case someone could have missed this tooling around the streets of Abu Dhabi at night.

      i feel sorry for the idiots who call hummers ugly. i have seen modified toyotas and hondas, kia's and Hyundai's. and all those d-student level of engineering are ugly. Hummers will last to 500,000km compared to the front wheel drive tissue boxes people drive. I m a mechanical engineer and i have bought only Hummers since they came out. i admit the first batch until 2007 had their issues (interior and transmission wise). My current 08 Hummer H2 and 08 H3 Alpha have been nothing short of a dream to run. Hybrids pollute the environment and a very alarming rate. yet the ignorant think they are doing their part because they like to buy into corporate propaganda. just perfect.

      That Hummer COULD be uglier - if it had a half-dozen Arabs sitting in it........

      Actually if you remove the "hood scoop" and ornamental bling, it's not a bad looking car. Similar to a 4door Jeep Renegade. Would probably sell ok in US with a turbo 4 or small V6.

      I am a dyed in the wool ground pounder hater. I am also a devout conv't. lover.

      Lack of taste? Seen the new Porshe Panamera lately?

      That car may have been spotted in Abu Dhabi, but those are Umm Al Quwain registration plates... another emirate of the UAE

        the auto companys got their bailout and are now considering bankruptcy.
        the stimulus package got passed and it all will go to those who helped elect obama.
        the dollar will soon be destroyed
        get ready for the amero

        Lol, another comment from the braindead. Abu Dhabi's money comes primariy from Europe, its greatest investor and most important buyer of its oil.

      Should go without saying, but just in case.... I have seen people in cars with every bolt on available, fake spinner hubcaps, oversized exhausts, seat covers, fake hood scoops, undercarriage lights. Thats what this looks like. So much done to it that it is tacky.
