in a trio of larger-than-life HUMMER H1s, the largest of all the mil-spec SUVs, but the design house is apparently thinking a bit smaller on behalf of its customers with a new take on the controversial Segway Personal Transporter. The pairing may actually make some sense considering that Dean Kamen's Segway has taken on iconic status since its inception back in 2001, though perhaps not quite to the point of the classic Chanel 2.55 handbag that adorns the handlebars of this self-balancing machine. Other tidbits unique to this model are quilted handgrips and mudflaps in matching black leather and Chanel badging on the wheels, steering head and handlebars. Top speed is listed at 12 miles per hour and range stands pat at the same 12 mph as the rest of the Segway line.
