Jeez, the Hummer is a BIG car. But the Knight XV is a true bohemoth! :eek:

Holy carp!! :wow: That thing makes the H2 look like a go cart. I'd love to see the wife try to negociate a crowded parking lot with that thing. I'd like to see it next to one of those Ford F650s or an International CXT for comparo.

It's a gas burner with E85 conversion on it, with diesel available as an option!! Even with 400bhp and 500 lbft I bet it's a slug with the V10 gas engine. And running it on E85 would probably get 2 mpg. :ack:


Base price? About $290,000.

That is hideous and stands out too much. If you want an armored car get one that looks like any other car on the road so you don't stick out as a target.

I agree. This same company offers the majority of today's top luxury cars in armored versions.

a 141 inch wheelbase?!? 240 inch length?!? That dwarfs even my 1964 Cadillac's 129.5 inch wheelbase and 225.5 inch length. Of course my car is 3-4 times lighter than that thing but god damn!

I agree it sticks out. But the main advantage compared to other armoured vehicles is that this one is an armoured vehicle built from the ground up. Not converted.
Still, you do draw too much attention to yourself. You still need to get out of the car at some time...

It would make more sense to me to clean up your act so they wouldn't be after you and buy a Ford GT instead.
