Vanos engine failure or chain assembly snapped -like in my car- and that bulletproof body does nothing for the owner.
Better build reliable engines first.

Or this one has a Toyota engine?

Thank goodness they didn't remove the rear seat wrinkles. That way you can be be comfortable while you're being shot at.

Attachment 2130005Nice, but not that impressed. Would be no match for my Barrett M107A1
50 BMG. Especially with my Raufoss MK211 API explosive tip round, I could turn that VR6 into burnt Swiss cheese.

The Raufosss 50 compared to a 5.56/7.62 x39/7.62 Nato

True, but RPG-7's are cheap & plentiful in 3rd world as well.
The odds of encountering a 50BMG round while driving around are lower than winning the lottery. Same goes for 50 cal. Only thing you'd need to fear while riding in this thing is a DShk 12.7 or 14.5 shredding it.

RPG7 won't penetrate heavily armored level 7 vehicles.

Well if you think the odds of encountering a Barrett M107 are unlikely,
how would they be for a huge 74 lb Russian Dshk?
BTW the Barrett is available now- I can get you a deal on one, factory new with Leupold scope pkg.

Haha thanks but 12k is too much for me.

Ha - I got mine, the 20" CQ model with Leupold MK4 scope BNIB for 11k. And if you want the best, most powerful anti-material rifle you can buy, must pay the price!

Lol what in the world are you shooting with that thing

That's a steal though, relatively speaking.
