World’s biggest truck: The Abu Dhabi Sheikhs are famous across the world over for their luxurious lifestyle, which includes their collection of exotic cars. One such Sheikh is Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, who is also known as Rainbow Sheikh. Why this name? Well, the reason behind this name is quite interesting. He bought no less than 7 new Mercedes 500 SEL cars and covered them in the colours of the rainbow – Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red.

Well, it’s a next level of extremes, right? But what’s even more interesting is the fact that Rainbow Sheikh also owns the world’s biggest truck. This monster truck is actually 1950 Dodge Power Wagon pick-up truck’s replica, which was built many years ago.
