Usually set the basis for a armored vehicle a big SUV, a van like that Mercedes Sprinter or the VW T6 and now and then one too larger sedan. But we don't have a filigree athlete as yet moving safe seen. That changes now with a Ferrari 458 Speciale, which is from ADD Armor from Jackson, Wyoming (USA) armored has been. So if you want to storm various terrorist connections with a beautiful red Ferrari, a few in the hail of bullets Donuts make, and then disappear again, then this Italian stallion is ideally suited for it. ADD Armor actually has the Ferrari bulletproof made. And optically you can not even see that the 458 is. It is true that the 458 does not offer the possibility of a ride for an entire task force including ammunition, for use as a solo secret agent in 007 style but it should be enough.
AddArmor Ferrari 458 Speciale
The Italian got armor Level B4 donated by ADD Armor, which is not enough to withstand large machine guns, but a .44 Magnum should despair. The armor is not just made of steel that is welded into the doors, but a mixture of metals that, according to the company, is ten times stronger than ballistic steel and weighs 60 percent less. The result is negligible More weight from only approx. 71 kilogramsWhich is even put into perspective again due to the many carbon upgrades and an optimized exhaust system. The 4,5 liter V8 of the Speciale can with the exhaust system and further tuning approx. 40 hp more power and should therefore be a little slower on the handling course compared to the series. If you add up all the modifications, the 458 is exact 30,39 kg heavier than the series. Thus it should still not be catchable for almost all villains. And we see a particularly big advantage that with regard to the armor, completely "inconspicuous“Occur.
Anti-intrusion package from € 23.000
Although it is difficult to use the word “inconspicuous” in combination with a 458 Speciale, nobody suspects that this vehicle has armor. According to AddArmor, every car can be protected accordingly, and the changes can also be removed again in order to restore the vehicle to its original state. The prices for the so-called "Anti-intrusion package"Incidentally, start at just under 23.000 euros. A Ferrari 458 Speciale on the other hand only at 240.000!
