If you ever owned a Hummer and thought to yourself, “Self, I like this truck — a lot — but I wonder, is there a more obnoxious truck I could drive? I mean, is there something even bigger than aUnimog I can shuttle around town whilst crushing puny Priusi underwheel?” If so, then Conquest Vehicles‘ Knight XV luxury bulletproof SUV is the vehicle for you. Conquest Vehicles promises they will only make 100 of their Knight XVs, but something tells me if they sold more they might just fire up the old assembly line. “Conquest Vehicle Inc’s flagship vehicle, the KNIGHT XV defines the future of the ultra-luxurious, handcrafted fully armoured SUV. This one-of-a-kind, V10, 6.8-litre, Bio-fuel powered SUV was inspired by military vehicle designs and features security appointments that are unrivaled in today’s SUV marketplace…The KNIGHT-XV(TM) is built using ballistic hardened steel making it fully armoured including ballistic fiberglass fenders, bumper and up to 64 mm. (2.5 inches) transparent armor (glass).” Sounds about right — if you live in Kabul, you’re in organized crime, or you play cornerback in the NFL. Priced at $295,000, each Knight XV takes 1,500 hours to build by hand.
