A unique giant-sized SUV named Dhabiyan

In Dubai, United Arab Emirates, everything is amazing. After some time ago being a viral news with a row of well-known supercars that were used as the Dubai Police patrol fleets, and then there was a shuttle service for passengers by using the helicopters and many others.

Now one of the members of the United Arab Emirates ruling family named Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan brings another amazement by showing off one of his unique cars. As quoted from the Autoevolution page, on Friday, February 22, 2019, recently his Highness Sheikh Hamad uploaded several pictures of a giant sized vehicle crossing in the middle of the desert on his Instagram account. 

This unique vehicle appeared unusual with 10 main wheels and four spare wheels. At first glance, you would think that this vehicle is one of the robot characters that appear in the Hollywood 's sequel movies 'Transformer.' Especially with its large shaped and sized. No, it's not Transformer robot. Even though the vehicle described as a 'desert ship,' has no equivalent or rival.

He was not kidding to give a parable the one-of-a-kind vehicle his owned, considering that those Dhabiyan named desert ship, was the result of a combination of Oshkosh M1075 military trucks and Jeep Wrangler. For information, that the Oshkosh M1075 is a kind of big-sized truck commonly used by the American troops to transport ballistic missiles.

Given its unusual dimensions, the Sheikh Hamad's desert ship has a length of 10.8 meters, a height of 3.2 meters, a width of 2.5 meters and a weight of approximately 24 tons. Judging from its dimensions, so this vehicle might be worthy to be crowned the biggest SUV in the world.

Furthermore the Dhabiyan uses a six-cylinders 15.2 litres (specifically created for military trucks) water-cooled diesel engine of Caterpillar which capable of producing quite a large amount of power, ie 600 horsepower.
With a bad appearance due to a very long body, and bad suspension. Presumably the track that can be passed by this vehicle was only on the desert. Not to mention fuel consumption which might be a problem for most people. 

But once again, that is not a big problem for a super wealthy guys like Sheikh Hamad. And this vehicle is just one of the many expensive vehicles owned by Sheikh Hamad. There are many more luxury and unique vehicles that he has. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DAILYMAIL | AUTOEVOLUTION]
