The average person uses vehicles for transportation needs, but for some, vehicles also need to provide security and protection. Celebrities, government and political officials, the secret service, the military and even criminals use armored vehicles to ensure their own safety. These vehicles are made to withstand bullets, bombs and other means of violent attack. There are many types of armored vehicles, but only a few are classified as being the best.
In order to fall into this category, they have to meet several requirements. They obviously have to be durable with the ability to protect its occupants from different means of attack. They should also be discreet, blending in with other vehicles so that no one is aware of them being armored. Style and innovation are also important factors. The owner of the vehicle wants to be safe, but they most likely want to be stylish as well. And in order to protect against a variety of possible attacks, the design must be creative and with a great deal of consideration given to all possible attack scenarios.
