It can even safely drive over land mines.
For vulnerable targets who need extra protection on the road while being chauffeured around in their Mercedes S-Class, Range Rover, or Rolls-Royce Cullinan, there are plenty of specialist companies that can add bulletproof bodywork and glass to protect cars from attacks. One of the most popular armored cars in the world often used by government agencies and security forces is the Toyota Land Cruiser - and now one of them is up for sale.
Built by Germany's Aurum Security, this armored Toyota Land Cruiser offers VPAM VR10 protection, the highest level of protection for civilian vehicles normally reserved for military use.
Its blast protection can withstand up to 33 pounds of TNT detonated just 6.5 feet away from the side of the SUV, as well as blasts from two hand grenades on the roof and two hand grenades under the floor. It can even safely drive over land mines in a warzone and offer protection from Kalashnikov rifle and Dragunov sniper rifle rounds.
The armored Toyota Land Cruiser has also been extensively blast tested to ensure it lives up to Aurum Security's claims. Like the regular Land Cruiser, the armored SUV is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 producing 381 hp and 401 lb-ft.
Unsurprisingly, adding copious amounts of armor has added a significant amount of weight that has affected the performance. Weighing a hefty 10,650 lbs, the armored Land Cruiser takes 12 seconds to accelerate from 0-62 mph and reach a top speed of 87 mph, so it may not be the most suitable vehicle for making a quick getaway during an attack.
With all the available options, Aurum Security armored vehicles usually take around two and a half months to produce, but this loaded example is ready for action. Listed for sale by Germany's Mobile.de, this heavily armored Toyota Land Cruiser can be yours for €232,050 ($277,392).
