Tata Motors has introduced a new variant of their SUV, Safari. This time the new Safari has the same engine and the same interiors, but still the price is increased almost 8 times! Yes, the new Tata Safari is a specially armored vehicle for the VVIP’s. The armor of the new Safari is so tough, that it can even withstand an assault by AK-47.
Available at a price of Rs 60 lakhs, it is one of the cheapest armored cars to be available in India. Even the fuel tank of this Safari is manufactured using explosive suppressant material. So if your car is attacked by grenades, nothing will happen to the underbody and fuel tank.
New Tata Safari has a NIJ Level III/B6 protection and a top speed of 150 kmph. It can run on flat tires too, for a distance of 50 kms and at a speed of 50-60 kmph. A Tata Motors dealer from North India stated, “Since the cost of the vehicle is so high, very few dealers invest to buy it and stock it in their showrooms. Such vehicles are not promoted by the manufacturing company but can be had after placing an order to a nearest dealer.”
