The armored van can take a beating while giving occupants a massage.
A deadly virus is gripping the world, and political instability is affecting major developed countries, making the world a more dangerous place to live in. One way to stay safe during these times is to simply stay at home, but what if you need to go fetch your suit from the dry cleaners, or take your Dachshund for its annual haircut? The answer might lie in the Inkas Armored Mercedes-Benz V Class. Canadian company Inkas specializes in turning ordinary cars into bomb-proof panic rooms. The company is famous for turning the Lincon Navigator into a bullet dodging beat, and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter into a corner office on wheels The company's latest creation is based on the V-Class van, which is similar to the Metris Passenger Van we get in the US and offers CEN BR6 armor level protection.
So what makes this V-Class so special? Inkas has left no stone unturned when it comes to making this van as safe as houses. The OEM-sized bulletproof glass, reinforced sliding door mechanisms and reinforced underbody have all been seamlessly incorporated into the chassis and body of the V-Class and are able to withstand rifle rounds to the side and windows, while the undercarriage can take on two hand grenades detonated underneath the minivan floor. Supporting the armored V-Class is a set of upgraded brakes and suspension, run-flat tires, and strobe lighting to celebrate surviving an assassination attempt or terrorist attack.
The interior of this limo van features massaging leather seats, a seven-inch infotainment system and a banging sound system. Under the hood the Inkas V-Class runs the standard 2.0-liter Mercedes-Benz engine producing 163 horsepower. Power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission, and the car can seat up to eight people. Each van is built to customer spec, so there is no set retail price, but expect to pay double the retail price of the actual car itself.
