Get noticed at Cannes - drive a huge armoured limo…

Which brings me onto the security question. Depending on what level of armour you've specified, a bomb actually could go off underneath it. You would definitely notice, but at least you'd survive to take out a hit on whoever was responsible. (That was a joke. Honest.)
The security industry grades armour plating B1 to B7; B1-3 gives you thin armour plating, four doors, and opening windows all round. B4 onwards upgrades the thickness of the armour, restricts the bodyshell to three doors, and permits only the driver's window to open. Our ‘test' car is B5-plus, so you need two hands to pull the doors shut, sitting in the back ironically increases your anxiety because it's so claustrophobic, and the driver's window is a thumping five centimetres thick.
