Land Rover’s Special Vehicles Operations has introduced its first armoured vehicle, based on the Range Rover.
It’s called the Sentinel and it comes with VR8 certification, which means it can withstand 7,62mm high velocity armour piercing rounds. It can also withstand grenade explosions beneath the car and up to 15kg of TNT.
For this application Land Rover chose the 3,0-litre supercharged V6 petrol engine, which means it’s powerful enough for a car chase, but just in case the VIP in question wants to escape before that happens, there’s an emergency escape system behind the rear seats.
You can see this impressive vehicle for yourself in the video below.
