And it'll even give you a massage at the same time.
When you reach a certain level of wealth, having a luxury car is not enough – you need a vehicle that can keep you safe. We've recently seen a slew of armored vehicles based on luxury models like the BMW X5 and even blisteringly fast performance cars like the Audi RS7. Now a Canadian company called Inkas Armored Vehicle Manufacturing has just released its latest armored vehicle and it doesn't get much better than this – it is based on a Bentley Bentayga.
Inkas has previously transformed a Mercedes G63 into the ultimate armored off-roader but this new Bentayga is an even more upscale option.
The Bentayha has been armored to meet CEN 1063 BR6 ballistic standards with ballistic protection for fuel, battery, and electronic control unit compartments. Even a grenade won't stop this Bentley. Inkas says the vehicle can withstand fire from rifles like the AK47 and AR10 and two simultaneous DM51 grenade detonations under the floor. The vehicle has also bee equipped with emergency lights in the grille, a siren, and PA system, but if that still doesn't cut it, you can also opt for tailpipe protection, a smoke screen system, an engine bay fire suppression system, and electric door handles. James Bond would love this Bentley.
Even with all of the additional armored equipment, Inkas hasn't lost any of the Bentley luxuries. Power comes from a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 producing 600 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque and but the additional weight of the armoring should impact the four-second 0-60 mph time. All of the interior amenities like the hand-crafted interior, wood trim, adaptive cruise control, and massaging seats remain intact.
A Bentley Bentayga isn't cheap and adding all of the additional security doesn't soften the blow to your wallet. The Inkas Bentayga costs $500,000, which is more than twice the car's starting price of $229,100. But if you are a powerful executive in need of protection and luxury, it could be well worth the cost.
