The Best of the Best 2003: Aftermarket - Canepa Design Hummer H2

<< Back to Robb Report, June 2003
  • Patrick C. Paternie

Canepa Design has transformed the oversize Tonka truck known as the Hummer H2 into the $100,000 Canepa Hummer H2. An application of a monochromatic paint scheme tones down the H2’s assortment of black plastic mirrors, vents, grilles, and military-inspired gewgaws. Smoked taillight lenses, chrome-plated tow hooks, and a billet aluminum fuel filler door are sporty and tasteful styling accents.

The interior undergoes a similar makeover, thanks to high-grade leather on the seats, center console, door pulls, sun visors, and upper door panels. A supercharger with intercooler upgrades the engine to 500 hp, 6-piston calipers improve braking, and 20-inch wheels do wonders for the H2’s appearance as well as its handling.
