HMMWV Prototype
HMMWV Prototype

This rare “Humvee” prototype was submitted for testing to the Army by the Teledyne Continental Company. The design of this vehicle was done by Lamborghini who continue to make some commercial versions of it after providing this prototype (under contract) to Teledyne Continental. The engine is a diesel V-8 made by International Harvester, the transmission is a General Motors Turbo Hydromatic 400, and it has torsion bar suspension. Although this particular version did not win the contest is remarkably similar to current day Humvees in use by the military.
