Aren’t you glad you’re not part of the 1 percent? With all that money, you’re ripe for assault by those who want what you have, so you have to have a safe room in each of your homes. And now you probably should consider having a safe room on wheels.
At least that’s what Wyoming-based AddArmor seems to suggest with its announcement of the “world’s fastest armored car,” an APR-tuned Audi RS7 that it turns into a 202 mph, B4-level safe room on wheels.
In addition to that sort of vehicle, which costs $205,000, AddArmor offers security packages for executive, work, personal and family vehicles staring at $28,000.
AddArmor says that instead of the heavy, slow SUVs typical of the armored vehicle genre, the Audi RS7 showcases new developments in lightweight combat-proven polycarbonate armor paneling. It says the new material is 10 times stronger than ballistic steel while weighing 60 percent less.
In fact, it says, the equipment adds only 200 pounds to the Audi’s curb weight.
Also part of the $205K package, the Audi gets a special engine performance package boosting horsepower to 760 and torque to 800 pound-feet; ballistic glass and hidden security countermeasures, including electrified and pepper-spray dispensing door handles, rear lighting designed to temporarily blinds pursuers, and onboard gas masks and air tanks to supply fresh air.
