This is pretty sweet. I think I may pick one up…everything’s bigger and badder in Texas!
This is a fully armored and macked out Rolls Royce Phantom from Texas Armoring Corporation (TAC). It’s pretty amazing to see the process of how to get this thing done. In a typical armored vehicle the entire passenger compartment is enclosed in lightweight composite armors that are impervious to all handgun and submachine gun munitions. Two types of armor are used in the armoring process, transparent and opaque. Transparent armor is used for the windows and consists of dense layered ballistic glass that is laminated to a tough inner spall shield of resilient polycarbonate. Opaque armor consists of lightweight composite armor (Spectra Shield), high-hardened ballistic steel, and other specialized ballistic materials. Once the vehicle has been armored, it’s reassembled to mirror the original factory finish.
Crazy, but if you have the cash, why not? It’s becoming a dangerous world out there. If you protect your home and your family, why not your car? You can see the armor in action here:
