Hyundai has teamed up with ArmorTech to develop this Equus Limousine Security.
Hyundai Motors along with consulting advisor ArmorTech has developed the Equus Limousine Security that will make its official debut at the Moscow motor show (31 August – 9 September). The vehicle measures 5,46 meters and tips the scales at 3,840 kg (8465 lbs).
It is fully compliant with the VR7 protection level and in those areas where the glass is connected to the body parts it has special “labyrinth” overlaps that protect the passengers inside from projectiles. For added protection, these overlaps are also found at the door gaps.
The Hyundai Equus Limousine Security is powered by a 5.0-liter Tau V8 engine that produces 430 hp (316 kW / 429 PS) at 6,400 rpm and 375 lb-ft (509 Nm) of torque at 5,000 rpm. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends the power to the rear wheels.
Some of the additional security equipment include an extra battery, reinforced door hinges, engine fire suppressant system, hydraulic window lifters, run-flat tires, an intercom communication system and a protected fuel tank with self-sealing option that prevents leakage.
