For many wealthy and important people, safety is essential. No mater the field of your work, you want to be totally secured but at the same time you don’t want to loose luxury and comfort. The new Range Rover Sentinel is engineered by Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations and it’s the first bulletproof Range Rover built directly by them.
The armored version of Range Rover Sentinel has the same luxurious look and feel but with the extra feature of being probably one of the safest cars around. From the outside it looks like a regular luxury Range Rover but in fact is anything but regular. It has ballistic steel and armoring materials all over the passengers area, the original glass was removed and replaced with ballistic glass, the doors and frames also have ballistic steel and the fuel tank, battery, radiator and front fenders have armored protection. This new model has reinforced suspension, run-flat systems installed on all tires, parking aid and a rear view camera that helps with reversing, navigation system and 20″ alloy wheelsThe new Sentinel is like a fortress on wheels. It can withstand 15 kg of TNT, DM51 grenade explosions, incendiary bullets and 7.62-millimeter high-velocity bullets. It also has an emergency escape for its passengers.
According to Land Rover: “If the worst happens and the main doors are blocked by an accident or an attack, occupants can leave the vehicle via the Emergency Escape System behind the rear seats. Despite this special security feature, the basic design is uncompromised and the Range Rover Sentinel is still equipped with the elegant split-level tailgate of the standard production vehicle.”The power comes from a 3.0 liter V6 engine with 335 horsepower. Even if the added weight has not been yet reveals, the armored Range Rover Sentinel will have the same performance as a stock Rover.
The interior is as luxurious as you expect, the seats are covered in high quality leather and even has an electric heating option. You can choose from a variety of colors and materials to customize the interior for your own tastes. This armored car is hand built in Oxford, England and it’s now available across Europe, in Africa, in the Middle East and in South America with a selling price of $450,000 and benefits from a three-year, 50,000-mile warranty.“The Range Rover Sentinel is one of the most extraordinary Range Rovers ever produced,” says John Edwards, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations.
