You can get an A8 heavily armored from the factory.  Interesting
-Audi states that the upgraded suspension will go 1-1.2 million Km
without any kind of repair or maintenance
-There's a button that detonates explosives to open the doors
-Weighs up to 3 tons, depending on how much armor you want
-The car can withstand the simultaneous explosions of two hand grenads,
15kg of geosite (?) charge, and carbin, machine gun, and revolver fire
*at the same time*.
-There's an intercom system to the outside (rear windows don't open;
front windows only open halfway)
-Special tires, sirens, cell phones, a fax machine, 100 meter remote
start, AWD, and tiptronic, heated seats, etc etc etc.
