An armoured vehicle is a lightweight wheeled vehicle that is purchased for the sake of internal security or armed escort. With the gradual decline of military escorts, armoured cars were developed for carrying out duties formerly assigned to them.
Armoured vehicles are popular due to their faster speed, comparatively simplified maintenance, unsuspecting looks and low production cost. The following is a list of armoured vehicles and their prices;
Armoured Mercedes Benz S-Class – Starting Price: N78.3 Million
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan ranks at the top of the super-luxury car class, because of its spacious interior, exceptional materials, a wealth of tech and safety features, refined powertrain, and relaxing ride quality. It can be customised into any specification, including bullet-proofing.

It rides on specially made Michelin PAX run-flat tires that keep on rolling along for a long 19 miles even after they have suffered any form of puncture. It is also equipped with an onboard fire extinguishing system and an emergency fresh air system in case of any fire, smoke or gas attacks.
Ultimately, bullet-proofing this luxury sedan gives comfort and still provides excellent ballistic and blast protection because the armoured S-Class never disappoints.

Armoured Mercedes Maybach S560/S650 – Starting Price N280 Million
The full name of this vehicle is the Mercedes-Benz S680 Guard 4Matic and it comes with a long wheelbase. The luxury sedan has been engineered to receive VPAM VR10 certification which is the highest level with regard to ballistic protection for a civilian vehicle. This means that it can withstand some gunshots and explosions. It is suitable for high-ranked people, such as politicians, heads of states as well as celebrities looking for maximum protection while being covered in all the luxury the three-pointed star can offer.
Instead of just putting the protective materials into a regular S-class, the engineers changed the entire bodywork to offer greater resistance compared to the previous Guard model. The windows are 10 centimetres thick and the car rides on Michelin PAX run-flat tires that can be used for up to (19 miles) after they have been punctured.
Other changes that have been made compared to a standard S-Class include hydraulic windows, meaning the vehicle will still work even after the onboard electronics fail after an attack.
