According to the Hollywood Reporter celebrities from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to Kanye West are cruisin in the latest uber-wealthy status ride: Luxury vehicles that can take a bullet, bomb –or give an strong electric shock if touched.
Mercedes, BMW and Bentley have armored versions of their most of their high end cars. Even Ford’s Land Rover and General Motors Corp.’s Cadillac DeVille come in a upgraded bulletproof version…some with doorhandles that can darn near electrocute you.
Unnamed sources told U.K.’s The Daily Star recently that Kanye and Kim Kardashian just shelled out $2.5 million for two new bullet and bomb proof cars. Kanye will drive a Chevrolet Kodiak based on President Obama’s “Limo One,” while Kim will have the ultimate in wartime chic, Dartz Motoz Company‘s Prombron Iron Diamond SUV. FYI – Dartz, a Russian company, makes the world’s most expensive bomb and rocket proof SUV’s. The Prombron Iron Diamond is their girlie version of a tank.
This sounds crazy to us, but for these wealthy celebs extending their personal security to their cars makes perfect sense…to them.
