The world’s largest SUV has 10 wheels and it weighs 21 tonnes

The world’s largest SUV is the 10-wheel Dhabiyan and it looks like it’s straight out of Mad Max, but it’s no work of fiction.

The 10m-long 10×10 is a world record-sized SUV and it’s obvious why.

The incredible creation is owned by Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates.

The enormous Dhabiyan is the world’s biggest SUV.

A world-renowned car enthusiast, he is known as ‘The Rainbow Sheikh‘ because of his collection of Mercedes S-Classes in every colour of the rainbow.

But it’s his Dhabiyan that has gone mega-viral online.

We have no idea how much it costs – but a monster like this would be worth an absolute fortune.

The Dhabiyan is 10m-long, 2.5m-wide and 3m-tall.

It weighs a whopping 21 tonnes.

The Dhabiyan is based on the US Oshkosh M1075 military truck and is equipped with the truck’s original 15.2-litre Caterpillar diesel engine that produces 600hp – which is needed to power this beast.

We’d be sure to move out of the way if this came up behind us on the road.

Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan also owns some of the craziest bespoke vehicles in the world, including the world’s biggest Hummer and a six-wheeled Nissan Patrol.
