10 Most Expensive Armored Cars Used By VIPs
VIPs have always needed protection when they were out in public. The threat to people like politicians, royal family members and celebrities often means that they will be accompanied by bodyguards and security officers to help keep them safe. However, modern weaponry and tactics have made it essential for such people to have even more protection, usually in the form of armored cars. These expensive vehicles are used exclusively by the top members of society, preventing all types of attack thanks to tough defensive measures that the manufacturers have built in to them.
Cadillac Escalade ESV
From the inside the Cadillac Escalade ESV appears to be a luxury car in the style of an expensive limousine. However, it is actually a $300,000 machine that can repel even the most ardent of attackers, as it is resistant to most types of gunfire.
Lexus LS 460 L
INKAS, the manufacturer behind the Lexus LS 460 L, created a vehicle that concentrates more on being to keep out of trouble rather than being able to withstand large amounts of damage. While it does feature a number of armored elements and can repel small arms fire, the $300,000 car is much lighter than other armored vehicles and can travel at high speeds.
