You can already get a big sunroof on your new HUMMER H3, but not one this big. The H3 Open-Top Concept that HUMMER will feature at the 2007 North American International Auto Show will feature this "Ifinivu" sliding fabric roof system, not entirely unlike the one we've seen perched atop this next generation Jeep Liberty test mule. That's not surprising since we know ASC designed the unit for the H3 Open-Top and is likely the supplier for Jeep's unit, as well. As you can see, the Infinivu system allows you to reel the top all the way back, all the way forward, or anywhere in between. There's only one crossbar behind the second row seats, which shouldn't impede anyone's view of the ample sky. With the back glass retracted into the rear door and the roof pulled all the way to the front, the H3 Open-Top would make a perfect vehicle for an African Safari... or a party wagon for cruising in the Woodward Dream Cruise.
The actual concept will also feature Silver Spectra Flair tri-coat paint with blacked out wheel wells, Mickey Thompson Baja Claw 325/50R20 tires, and a custom lambskin leather interior with black chrome door panel trim, along with a host of other HUMMER accessories that any customer can already buy out of their catalogue.

HUMMER H3 OPEN TOP CONCEPT GIVES NEW MEANING TO OPEN-AIR DRIVING
DETROIT – The 2007 HUMMER H3 has an available oversized power sunroof for an open-air feel, but the H3 Open Top concept goes a step further with ASC's unique sliding fabric "Infinivu" roof system. The expanded opening provides a nostalgic, safari-style experience in a thoroughly modern midsize SUV. The look and fun factor are classic, but the ease of operation, durability and weather resistance are strictly contemporary. Black chrome finish on the numerous H3 Chrome Appearance Package items available from HUMMER Accessories offsets the sparkling silver paint. Inside, the primary upholstery material is Townsend lambskin leather with Gatsby Green accent stitching.
