England’s Sun tabloid got a chance to test drive a new full-size, remote-control HUMMER H3 recently, and managed to lose control over the vehicle worth around $70,000 (USD). The HUMMER was designed by a team at Cranfield University in Bedfordshire under chief engineer Dr. James Brighton. “We’ve had lots of fun in the process creating the best radio-controlled vehicle ever,” he said.
And who better to test out the new remote HUMMER than a tabloid reporter? At least they had enough sense to video tape the test drive – although the HUMMER’s adventure into the bushes wasn’t caught on camera. Maybe next time.
