$1.2 Million Mercedes-AMG G63 Limo Has Bulletproof Body

You never know when you’ll need a bulletproof vehicle and if you ever do, take a look at the Mercedes-AMG G63. It’s a limousine with a bulletproof exterior and lavish amenities in the cabin. You can never go wrong with this armored sport utility vehicle.

You may have to shell out a whopping $1.2 million in cold cash but if you need the extra protection, there’s no bulletproof vehicle more elegant than the Mercedes-AMG G63 limousine. INKAS, the Canadian maker of armored autos, is offering the G63 limousine along with a number of their other creations.

Outside, the limo is wrapped in advanced body armor, ballistic glass, and perimeter surveillance systems. There are infrared and thermal cameras that have the capacity to record local footage. These footages can then be uploaded to a secure cloud server that owners can later view.

The best feature is that the body armor can stop bullets leaving a 7.62 mm high-power rifle. The limousine can also handle explosions from two DM51 hand grenades. In other words, even the president of the United States can be safely tucked inside this vehicle.

Inside, the $1.2 million price tag brings plenty of comfortable features such as the rear seats with a massage function and fully recline. From where you seat, you will be able to control the built-in command center that operates all of the media, lighting and security functions of the SUV.

Included in the entertainment system are 4K Apple TV hooked to a 4K television, voice control capability, and a motorized bar with a chiller to keep those fuzzy champagnes chilled.

Still looking for more? The limo also comes with a daylight function that will simulate real light and reduce passenger fatigue.

The Mercedes-AMG G63 will be powered by a 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that can make 563 horsepower. Hopefully, the added features won’t make it slow and turn it sluggish.

3 Reasons Why The 2019 Ford Mustang Hennessey Heritage Edition Is Special

It was in 1991 that John Hennessey began modifying and tuning cars to maximize their potential way and beyond what automakers were able or willing to. To celebrate the 10,000th car that Hennessey tuned, the company comes up with the Hennessey Heritage Edition of the 2019 Ford Mustang.

1. There Will Only Be 19 Units Available

This is a proper special edition car. Many tuning companies are quite too liberal in using the phrase “special edition” that we really cannot separate the cars anymore. Hennessey will only be producing 19 units of the car, so you better get your cash ready if you want to own one of these.

2. It Is Based On The 2018 Ford Mustang Heritage Edition

It is important to understand that the 2019 Ford Mustang Hennessey Heritage Edition is based on another special edition model—the 2018 Ford Mustang Heritage Edition. The most prominent addition to the 2019 model is the carbon fiber body parts, followed by a stainless steel exhaust system, a set of 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and a livery package similar to what Ford used on its Heritage Edition Mustangs.

The interior gets a lot of upgrades, too, though you will first notice the individually numbered dashboard plaques that denote the model number of the 19 units that Hennessey will produce. There’s also a letter of authenticity and a personal letter of gratitude that comes from John Hennessey himself.

3. The Car has 808 Horsepower

But it’s not the changes on the exterior and the interior that highlights the Hennessey Heritage Edition. It’s what you find under the hood—a modified version of Ford’s 5.0-liter V-8 engine that can now produce 808 hp and 677 lb-ft of torque. With the new figures, this special edition car can now sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds. It also has a top speed of 200 mph.

 

Tesla Model S and X Will Receive Interior Refresh

Tesla hasn’t been paying much attention to the Model S and the Model X because the company has been busy fast-tracking the production of the Model 3, the latest in its line of electric vehicles.

According to the images published by Electrek, however, the larger sedan and the SUV models are due for an interior refresh. This is great news for those who still want to spend their money on either a Model S or a Model X because they will be getting the same spartan interiors as the Model 3.

We hope you certainly like how the Model 3 looks like in the cabin because that’s exactly how the interiors of the new Model S and Model X will look like. The images published show a horizontal touchscreen unit that replaces the vertical screen we have found endearing in the Model S and Model X from the beginning. The unit looks thinner than the Model 3’s screen with ultra-thin bezels. Since this was the latest intel we got from Tesla, it looks like the dashboard of the Model S and X will look better than the one in the Model 3.

The cockpit will also be similar to the Model 3 with its single-vent design and the center gauge cluster removed for a minimalist display readout.

The new spartan interior looks less luxurious than what we’ve come to love about the Model S and the Model X, which are both geared for the higher market than the Model 3. But the refresh will reportedly give both cars access to premium materials such as new seat cushions, additional front storage, and a wireless phone charger.

This latest move from Tesla is part of an effort to catch up with other premium brands that offer electric vehicles, too. The final designs are going to be released next year, so everything can still change and we might face a better interior upgrade for the Model S and X.
