Car For Sale

Thinking of a new car? Probably not at any of your local dealerships will be the Mercedes-Benz M-Guard, or Audi A8 L W12 Security, or  QX70 Infiniti.  They are armoured bullet-proof vehicles for the rich and famous.

The M-Guard is able to withstand shots fired from a .44 Magnum and blasts from hand grenades. Its windows are made of special laminated glazing with a polycarbonate layer, form-fitted steel is hidden inside the body structure to create a safety-cell cocoon, and run-flat tyres capable of 80km/h even with no air are fitted to normal AMG light alloy wheels.

The Audi can withstand Nato hard-core ammunition and a hand grenade attack achieved by using the most advanced tough, resistant materials – hot-formed armoured steel, aramide fabric, ceramics, special alloyed aluminium and multilayer windows made of special glass with a polycarbonate coating on the inside to prevent shattering.

The bullet-proof Infiniti QX70 offers protection against handgun calibres up to .44 Magnum. It’s clad in  by International Armouring Corporation/Armormax.lightweight armour.

In these days of rising discontent and talk of revolution, the wealthy are indeed watching their backs and making preparations.
