Range Rover Sentinel | Safest car in the world (Armoured Car 2020): Last posts we have talked about the light weight super cars, sports cars, etc. Today we will be talking about a strong armoured car that is Range Rover Sentinel. We will know about the price, specifications and some interesting facts about Range Rover Sentinel.

Overview of Range Rover sentinel

The Range Rover sentinel was manufactured by Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), presented at the 2019 Home Office Security and Policing show in Farnborough. This armoured car is a seven sweater car engineered and built at the SV Technical Centre located at Warwickshire.

The Range Rover sentinel looks similar to the regular Range Rover but you can see the difference, if you look closely. The doors are thicker and LED lights are accompanied in the both bumpers and behind the front grill.

Armoured car

The sentinel is one of safest cars in the world (Armoured car), being capable to withstand .30 caliber, armor-piercing incendiary bullets from weapons like the AK-47. 

This armored car can also resist the enormous explosions of up to 33 pounds of TNT and DM51 grenades.

The most important fact about this armored car is that it can also resist the explosion caused by an improvised explosive device (IED).

The reason behind all the above resistance is the heavy material used in this armoured car. It is accompanied by more than one ton of armor plate and glass to save the passengers on a move from an attack: 2 inches of glass, European Standard VPAM BRV 2009 VR8 and PAS 300; Heavy steel, etc.

  1. WOW, very impressive. I suppose people who own one of these don’t have to worry about fuel consumption.

  2. Very detailed and informational post! I never would been able to gather all this info on my own. Thank you!

    Thankfully the market for these would be very small. You would hate to think that we would ever get to a stage where everyday people would think it necessary to have cars that are armoured. Nevertheless, for those people that might be targeted, this vehicle (although expensive) obviously performs very well and has a good level of comfort. Very interesting post.

    Its beautiful! We looked at Range Rovers last year while shopping for a 3-row SUV. Love the LED lights!

  5. Jules at www.MaybeTryThis.com

    These Range Rovers are such handsome looking and well-constructed cars (by your description).

  6. Damn! This looks really beautiful! I bought a Land Cruiser last January, I was actually contemplating whether to get the LC or a Range Rover but now I kind of regret not getting the RR. This is a good review!

  7. GV Caplas | Wandering Good Vibes

    Awesome car! Since its feature is an armored car, maybe it would be cool if it will be used on Fast & Furious 😁👌🏻

  8. Wow what a reputation this car has. I would love to drive this car and I would be fearless because of all of the safety amenities.
