Personal armored cars

Jewish World Review | (UPI) With homeland insecurity rising the car business is going "bullet resistant." Ford is introducing the $140,000 Lincoln Town Car BPS for its Ballistic Protection Series which can stop an AK-47 and block a grenade, Newsweek reports. Later this year General Motors will roll out an armored Cadillac Deville capable of deflecting bullets from a .44 magnum.

BMW introduced the 760Li High Security, which can be hermetically sealed in a gas attack and supply its occupants with germ-free oxygen. Armored-car makers, whose big customers traditionally have been in developing countries, say the United States is now one of the fastest-growing markets.
