Ferrari 458 Speciale turned into an armored supercar
The total weight of the armor was just over 70 kg. It is able to protect the driver and passengers from the fire of small arms, such as pistols.
The American company AddArmor has developed an armored version of the Ferrari 458 Speciale supercar. The creators of the car claim that the car has not lost its dynamic characteristics and has become one of the fastest bulletproof cars in the world.
According to MotorTrand, AddArmor has added polycarbonate panels to the sports car, which are "ten times stronger than standard steel armor, but about 60% lighter." The total weight of the armor was just over 70 kg, but at the same time it meets the European B4 standard. This means that it is able to protect the driver and passengers from small arms fire, such as pistols.
The company said that the prototype shown costs $625,000. The package of improvements will cost customers about $28,000. Ferrari 458 Speciale is equipped with a 4.5-liter v8 engine with a return of 605 horsepower. In 3 seconds, the car accelerates to 100 km/h, in 9.1 seconds - to 200 kilometers per hour. The top speed of the ferrari 458 speciale is stated at 330 kilometers per hour.
The American company AddArmor and the APR tuning studio have developed an armored version of the "charged" Audi RS7 hatchback. The equipment includes a pepper gas spray function, a smoke screen installation system, a "sound cannon" and run-flat tires. In addition, stun guns on door handles and blinding light elements are designed to protect against attack.
