Range Rover Sentinel Luxury Armoured SUV

range-rover1The Range Rover Sentinel is the first luxury armoured vehicle to be fully engineered by Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) providing the highest levels of protection an 4×4 can offer.

The Range Rover Sentinal delivers on many levels, not purely for offering outstanding occupant protection. Inspired by the standard wheelbase Range Rover Autobiography the Sentinel delivers the utmost comfort, protect with world’s most coveted SUV.

Great thought has been applied to the design of the Sentinal. Created to combat against the most damaging and targeted of threats, including penetration by 7.62mm high velocity armour piercing incendiary bullets, this extraordinary vehicle produces lateral protection against up to 15kg Trinitrotoluene (TNT) blasts and defence against DM51 grenade explosions from both range-rover3beneath the floor and above the roof.

At the vehicles heart is a specifically created six-piece armoured passenger cell, made of super-high-strength steel to provide world-class protection. Standard glass has been replaced by multi-laminated armoured privacy glass of optical quality.

The Range Rover Sentinel is fully certified to VR8 standard against ballistic threats by QinetiQ which is an independent organisation that was formerly part of the British Government’s Defence Establishment Research Agency.

The 20-inch split-rim alloy wheels are not just for show, fitted with run-flat tyre inserts means the Sentinal can be driven even if the tyres are deflated. This means no matter the nature of the attack the Range Rover Sentinel can still utilise the impressive performance of its 340PS 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine in conjunction with a specially calibrated ZF eight-speed automatic transmission to get to safety.
