Russian-made Dartz Kombat T98 Luxury SUV Is Grenade-proof – Born Rich

If bulletproof clothing and bodyguards are just not enough, you definitely need an armored vehicle. We have earlier told you about bulletproof vehicles, including the pimped-out Russian military vehicle owned by a Moscow entrepreneur, Armet Gurkha, the armored vehicle and the armored Range Rover Vogue. The latest in the family of armored roadsters is the Russian-made Dartz Kombat T98 luxury SUV. The Hummer lookalike is resistant to AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenades, and features heavy steel plated doors and 7cm thick windows. The beast is powered by an 8.1 liter Vortec V8 and is capable of doing 180 km/h. Prince Albert of Monaco was seen checking out the grenade-proof vehicle at the recent Top Marques Monaco auto show. For those uber-rich who have remained undeterred by the recession, the Dartz Kombat T98 luxury SUV comes for a mere €150,000 (approx. US $200,000).
