This bulletproof Aston Martin Vantage from AddArmor will give the driver a little bit of the feeling of traveling like a super spy.
From the outside, the sports coupe looks ordinary, but in fact it has bulletproof armor with protection level B4, which can stop even high-powered projectiles such as .44 magnum, .357 magnum and also the 9mm parabellum.
The armored Vantage is equipped with bulletproof glass for both the windshield and the windows. In an attempt to reduce mass, AddArmor used 204 kg of Kevlar. Explosion-proof hardened steel shield protects the roof and the accompanying fuel tank uses composite composites to protect the vehicle from fires.
To help get out of bad situations quickly, AddArmor also adds flat tires. In addition, the vehicle is also equipped with caps on the ends of the exhaust pipes to prevent attackers from introducing foreign objects into the pipes. The company also tweaked the suspension to compensate for the extra weight from all the protective gear.
As the new images showcased, it’s hard to tell that this is more than just an ordinary Vantage. From the outside, the grille can be seen in the exhaust ports, but that is something that many people will not notice when this car is on the road.
Similarly, the interior is still as luxurious as expected from a supercar with 2 comfortable seats and spacious legroom as well as a personalized dashboard with a matte black tone, integrated with control buttons. Controls are arranged in a unique triangular shape. It is easy to see how much thicker the glass is when you look at the doors. In addition, on the door handle is equipped with a button to activate the electric shock.
The latest standard version of the Vantage produces up to 503 hp and 685 Nm of torque from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with the only transmission option being an eight-speed automatic. The factory specifications show that the car is capable of reaching a speed of 96 km / h in just 3.6 seconds and reaching a top speed of up to 314 km / h. The extra weight from armoring and other modifications can result in a slightly slower time for the build to go through the company AddArmor.
Aston has expanded its lineup with the Vantage F1 Edition, which uses the same engine but pushes out 528 hp and 685 Nm of torque. The company also has a limited production V12 variant with a stronger capacity of 187 hp and torque difference of 68 Nm. With this power, the V12 is capable of accelerating from 0 – 96 km / h in just 3.4 seconds and is capable of reaching a maximum speed of up to 322 km / h.
AddArmor currently offers armoring services for all luxury cars and supercars with a basic bulletproof package starting at $28,000. The company can add everything from the crash bumpers to gun mounts, night vision systems and electric shock door handles on request.
