Street-legal SUV can withstand bullets, has smoke screen
A street legal vehicle that can not only withstand bullets, but also has a smoke screen and electrified door handles, has gone on sale.
Packed with defensive systems to protect occupants in an ambush, the $295,000 USD Rezvani TANK Military Edition features run-flat tires, front and rear blinding lights, and a thermal night vision system.
There is also a survival kit featuring military grade gas masks, Hypothermia kit and First Aid kit, as well as sirens and a full intercom system with external speakers and microphone allows driver to communicate with external threats without the need to open door or windows.
The vehicle from California-based Rezvani is based on their original Tank XUV (eXtreme Utility Vehicle).
The Military Edition has a powerful 6.4-litre 500-horsepower V8 engine, or an optional 6.2L 707 Horsepower V8 from the Dodge Hellcat, which Rezvani say makes it "capable of propelling TANK over any terrain".
It comes with the tagline: "Designed For Defense, Built For The Road. The Toughest Extreme Utility Vehicle on Earth."
The vehicle takes approximately 14 - 24 weeks to build and can be reserved for a $2,000 deposit.
