Land Rover has taken the wraps off the Range Rover Sentinel, its first car capable of withstanding grenades, bullets and TNT attacks.
Launched with a guide price of €400,000 the Sentinel is based on the company’s flagship Autobiography model and has been developed by its Special Operations department.
So as well as supreme comfort, a leather interior and rear seats that recline, it is also certified to VR8 standard against ballistic threats.
This ability to withstand a salvo of shells is due to a six-piece armored passenger cell, a tamper-proof exhaust system and self-sealing fuel tank, not to mention run flat tires and bullet-proof tinted glass all round.
The Range Rover Sentinel debuts at the Defence and Security Equipment International Show next week and is available to buyers in the UK, Europe, South America, Africa and the Middle East.
