The Škoda Armoured Superb

Based on the standard Superb Estate 187bhp 2.0 TDI but certified to meet PAS 300 requirements for ballistic and blast protection, the armoured Škoda (see footage here) features an extensively modified body that offers protection through bullet-resistant glass, high-strength steel and composite materials.

It also features upgraded suspension and brakes as well as wheels that can continue to run even if the tyres are deflated plus an emergency lighting and siren system. The car also retains the standard model’s five-seater layout cabin and large boot and also offers an 8-inch touchscreen communications hub with GPS, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.

It comes with a standard three-year warranty and is priced from £118,688 OTR (€135,637).
