Land Rover has unveiled an armoured 4×4 that can take on all terrains – as well as TNTs and grenades
Powerful people with enemies can rest easy after Land Rover unveiled its first luxury armoured vehicle – capable of withstanding grenades and gunfire.
The £360,000 Range Rover Sentinel is being billed as a “mobile fortress” which still delivers the comfort and capability of the standard 4×4.
This Range Rover is built to take serious damage, according to Land Rover
Engineers at the firm’s Special Vehicle Operations department developed a six-piece armoured cell, made of super-high-strength steel to protect passengers.
The standard glass has been replaced with multi-laminated bulletproof windows.
The windscreen will be able to withstand high velocity fire arms
It has been designed to withstand penetration by 7.62mm high velocity, armour piercing incendiary bullets, 15kg TNT blasts and DM51 grenade explosions from both beneath the floor and above the roof.
And even if the wheels are shot at, the Sentinel can be driven with deflated tyres.
The jaw-dropping off-roader, based on the Autobiography-spec Range Rover, is the most expensive model ever made by Land Rover.
