5 Bulletproof Luxury Cars You Have to See to Believe

Are you in constant danger of being shot? Probably not.

That being said, the market for armored cars is increasing every year. So even if you aren’t the President of your country or a secret agent, you may still want to look into the possibility of owning one.

From huge, heavy trucks to rock-solid roadsters, there are several different kinds of bulletproof cars.

Let’s take a look at 5 of the most impressive bulletproof luxury cars in the world.

  1. Bulletproof Ferrari 458

As if owning a Ferrari wasn’t cool enough, you can now drive one safe in the knowledge that you’re secure from any jealous gunslingers.

You may think that making a car bulletproof will make it unreasonably heavy and therefore slow. But incredibly, DriveTribe tells us that this bulletproof supercar is only 30kg heavier than the stock model.

This means that the Italian stallion is still able to reach its top speed of 325km/h according to Driven.

Obviously, this protection comes at a cost, and you’ll need to add around $50k to the base price.

  1. Range Rover Sentinel

Most bulletproof vehicles come with more safety features than you can count, and this 4-tonne beast is the perfect example of this.

The car is able to withstand an incredible amount of firepower including grenades. But once an attacker has given up on shooting their way in, they might still try to gain entry to the car.

The tires are able to run flat, the fuel tank is self-sealed and there are all sorts of anti-tamper measures so you can be sure that you’re safe and sound inside. Some services offer even more customization on top of this.

  1. Mercedes-Maybach Pullman Guard

If you’ve ever seen a Presidential convoy in real life or on television, then chances are you’ll have seen a Mercedes armored vehicle.

These luxury cars are not just safe, comfort is just as important. The spacious rear seating area is large enough to have 4 passengers facing each other, providing ample room for business meetings.

Business Insider tells us that this car costs over $1.5million making it a truly elite vehicle.

  1. Paramount Group Marauder

If maximum protection no matter the terrain or conditions is what you need, look no further than the Marauder.

This huge, powerful, and heavy vehicle will protect its occupants from bullets, land mines, and TNT. It also has the ability to carry 2 passengers up front and 8 in the rear, making it an excellent choice for military operations.

It can even carry extra fuel tanks and can be fitted with extra sensors for round-the-clock operability.

  1. Dartz Black Shark

Out of all the vehicles on the list, you might not have heard of this one. It’s super rare and very expensive.

If you do manage to get your hands on one, you’ll find it’s one of the most customizable, powerful, and robust armored vehicles that you can buy.

Bulletproof Luxury Cars Aren’t for Everyone

If you’re lucky enough to have the money and unlucky enough to have a price on your head, then this list of bulletproof luxury cars might be helpful in your search for the perfect vehicle.

For the rest of us, we can marvel at these epic machines!
