Six more bulletproof cars you can buy
Armoured Merc S-Class is just one of many cars for the more "safety-aware" among you
Posted: 07 Aug 2014
Earlier this week, Mercedes revealed to the world its S-Class ‘Guard' edition; a luxury limousine designed to protect the budding heads of state, high-ranking officials and reality television producers out there.
It's based on the latest generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class, gets a lovely 6.0-litre V12 with 525bhp, and boasts enough protective capability to defend against rifle fire from military weapons, hand grenades, explosive charges, zombies, and, we presume, frickin' LAZERS.
So, it's an S-Class built for the apocalypse. But this isn't the only armoured car you can actually buy with your own money. No sir, there are many more.
We here at Top Gear pride ourselves on our solid, helpful and definitely-not-useless consumer advice. So should you be planning a military coup or simply plotting which niche area of human existence you can somehow squeeze into a twelve-part reality miniseries, here are six more bullet- and bomb-proof cars you might be interested in.
