It might look like a conventional Range Rover SUV, but it’s what’s under the skin that separates the highly protective Range Rover Sentinel from the rest of its Brit brethren. Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations wanted to build a vehicle that would withstand attacks on high-profile executives and dignitaries in high-risk areas, so they took the high-luxe Autobiography version and added armor and tech that essentially makes the Sentinel into a moving bank vault with boardroom appointments. The “Protection Cell” makes the Sentinel nearly impervious to TNT, grenades, IEDs, and even anti-tank mines. The ballistic glass can stop small-arms fire all the way around. There’s even enough armor in the underbody and the paneling to protect occupants from land mines. The Sentinel also houses an escape panel out the back if egress from the doors is blocked, and the run-flat tires can take damage and continue to run for 30 miles. The powerful supercharged V8 engine remains the same, and the added weight slows it down a little. The Range Rover ruggedness remains, though, so it can still traverse off-road conditions and deep water without a hiccup, and the luxurious leather, wood, and aluminum in the cabin mean it’s calm inside while chaos may reign outside.
