We’ve recently featured a fair few customised cars from the guys at Arkonik, who specialise in Land Rovers, here on the pages of The Coolector and we thought that few could come close to the amazing aesthetic and painstaking attention to detail that they put into their machines but we might just have found a serious contender for their crown in the shape of Detroit based, Mil-Spec Automotive, and their stunning flagship offering, aptly named The Launch Edition.
Mil-Spec Automotive have a spirit for adventure coursing through their veins and it is this mindset which steers the design of their amazing custom automobiles and if their maiden offering, the breathtaking The Launch Edition, is anything to go by, this is a workshop who are going to be inundated with customisation requests for years to come. The Hummer H1 is Mil-Spec Automotive’s muse in this instance and the quality they’ve accomplished both internally and externally with their The Launch Edition machine truly is second to none.

The Launch Edition Hummer H1 from Mil-Spec Automotive has been designed in Detroit and hand-built in Wichita to exacting specifications to meet the detailed drawings that served as the catalyst for its creation.

Each one comes equipped with a turned, Duramax Turbo-Diesel mated to an Allison transmission which delivers an out of this world performance. This powertrain is capable of producing 500 horsepower and can reach 0-60MPH in 6.8 seconds. The chassis of The Launch Edition is completely re-manufactured in house by the team’s Hummer H1 specialist to guarantee its quality and each component is taken apart and reassembled with new parts before the whole frame and all its components are powder coated.
