Skoda unveils bullet proof version of the Superb

Skoda unveils bullet proof version of the Superb

- The body is made of a combination of bullet-resistant glass, high strength steel and composite materials

- The armoured car is based on a standard 2.0 TDI 190bhp Superb Estate with the passenger cell reinforced to the extent that it meets PAS 300 requirements for ballistic and blast protection

- The suspension and braking systems have been upgraded to account for the additional weight of the car

The Skoda Superb is already known for its acres of space, comfort and quality. But now, following three years of development and testing, Skoda has introduced a bullet and blast-resistant version of the Superb in the estate form.

The armoured Superb is the end result of a joint venture project between Skoda and a UK-based convertor. Following three years of development is a finished model that is virtually indistinguishable from the standard production car yet offers bullet and blast protection to occupants.

Protection is provided by a combination of bullet-resistant glass, high strength steel and composite materials; yet despite this the fully armoured Superb retains its five-seater layout cabin and the large boot. The armoured car is based on a standard 2.0 TDI 190bhp Superb Estate. Although exact details of the conversion must remain secret, the passenger cell has been reinforced to the extent that it meets PAS 300 requirements for ballistic and blast protection. 

The suspension and braking systems have been upgraded to account for the additional weight of the car. Other features incorporated into the design include adaptations to the wheels that can continue to run even if the tyres are deflated – allowing the driver to get to a place of safety after a blowout – and an emergency lighting and siren system. The car also features an 8-inch touchscreen communications hub with GPS, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.
