Audi’s A8 L Security Armored Car Is A Nearly-Indestructible VIP Luxury Limo

If you’re an arms dealer, a VIP, or a common citizen who’s looking for a bit more protection for your weekly grocery haul, there are a handful of security-focused vehicles that can fulfill your needs. The industry’s most recent bulletproof platform comes in the shape of Audi’s 2020 A8 L Security Armored Car — a monstrous 8,542-pound luxury sedan that can take on high-caliber rifle rounds, grenades, and substantial small arms fire.

Audi’s most recent iteration of the executive sedan features a slew of high-profile protective capabilities, including a fully-armored interior space, laminated armored glass, and layered body panels that keep the vehicle as unassuming as possible. From the exterior, the A8 L Security looks like any other road-faring platform, but once you peel back the car’s sleek skin, you’ll be surprised to find various layers of antimagnetic material, articulating elements, and body glazing, resulting in VR9/VR10 class compliance. It even comes fully-equipped with two cylinders of compressed air, allowing for the creation of excess pressure in its cabin during smoke or gas attacks, as well as a pyrotechnic system that can sever the car’s doors from its body, should you find that they’re damaged and can’t be opened using conventional methods.
