One always exaggerates! In this case it is again Sheik Hamad bin Hamdan al Nahyan from Abu Dhabi in the tuning scene as well Rainbow Sheikh knows. To the Rainbow Sheikh he became because he owns seven 500 SEL in the colors of the rainbow that were manufactured directly by Mercedes. And some time ago he came up with something new that dwarfs everything that has existed before. After other projects such as a caravan in the shape of the globe or the Dodge Power Wagon XXXL became boring, something new had to be found. Not pretty, but extremely ostentatious and huge. It is the so-called "Dhabiyan" which is over 12 m long, 3,50 m high and has 10 wheels Bureko 6 × 6, one Mansory G63 AMG 6 × 6 Gronos and even the Devel 6 × 6 looks almost puny. He was already introduced to 2017 at the Dubai Motor Show and is currently back on everyone's lips.
Projects of Sheik Hamad bin Hamdan al Nahyan
With five axles, the Dhabiyan 10 × 10 has two more axles than the "usual" 6 × 6 vehicles and there are also 4 spare wheels that are always carried on the left and right of the vehicle. Tons of chrome and a black driver's cab make a powerful impression. The huge radiator grille is somewhat reminiscent of the new design line from BMW and the bonnet is almost as long as “4” Smart Fortwo. The camel at the very front can only be seen from the driver's cab with binoculars. The total weight is of course, as expected, high at 24 tons. Given that the base is a 16-tonne or more Oshkosh M1074 / 1075 from the OShkosh Truck Corporation but not really surprising. The engine is a 600 PS powerful 15,2-liter Caterpillar engine, including vehicle, currently in the Emirates National Auto Museum of Abu Dhabi can be admired.
10 meters further back - the cab
It is shifted by means of a five-speed Allison automatic and if necessary there is a switchable off-road reduction and certainly no longer hold for the Dhabiyan 10 × 10 at the latest. And the undercarriage of the monster is really well thought out. It uses three different spring systems. The two front axles hang on coil springs and axles three and four on a leaf-sprung tandem suspension. The last axle brings some driving comfort thanks to air suspension. And if you take a closer look at the projectile, you will recognize many parts of other vehicles. In the back there are taillights and a rear apron from the Dodge Dart and the driver's cab was probably a Jeep Wrangler. In front you can see somehow fitted headlights of a Ford Super Duty pickup and two large round headlights. Crazy!
