An armored VW Bora (Jetta) - but only for Mexico

Security is a huge factor in Mexico these days, given the country's brutal and tragic drug war.

So, VW devised this armored Bora model (based on the previous-generation Jetta), which it has been offering in Mexico for a while now, as a less expensive option vis-a-vis those large armor-plated SUVs that are the norm for those needing protection.

The Bora Protect costs about $70,000 (€48,000) and comes with the 2.0 liter TFSI engine with 200 bhp (149 kW / 203 PS), coupled to VW's six-speed DSG gearbox. It is bullet-proof and features run-flat tires so that a round through the tire rubber won't prevent you from speeding away.
