Geneva Motor Show: Range Rover adds an armour-plated option

LAND Rover unveiled an armour-plated version of the new Range Rover at Geneva, developed by the company's special vehicles division.

Designed to resist attack from machine guns or hand grenades, the Range Rover is unlike conventional armoured limousines because of its genuine four-wheel drive ability allowing it to cross all terrains.

It will be available in four levels of security, offering protection against hand-guns, assault rifles or high velocity rifles. The floor pan is also protected to guard against hand grenades. Added protection has been given to the fuel tank and battery, while the tyres have run-flat capability.

Prices start at £165,000 for the car, which is available with the 4.4-litre V8 petrol and 3.0-litre Td6 diesel engines.
