2012 Conquest Knight XV: Secure Luxury for the One Percent


You can’t be too careful. Especially if you’re a billionaire and/or you live in or travel to dangerous places. That’s why Conquest Vehicles in Toronto builds the Knight XV. The 13,000-lb, 8-foot tall and 20-foot long truck, built on a Ford F-550 Super Duty chassis, seats six in bulletproof luxury.

Surround yourself with rich leather and sink your feet into plush wool carpeting as you cruise unscathed through a third-world slum or urban war zone. Upgrade your Conquest Knight XV with the Luxury Package and enjoy a cigar while taunting Occupy protesters over the PA from the comfortable confines of the spacious interior. Or, show MRAP-like immunity to explosions with the even more fortified Security Package. That upgrade even gets you a positive pressure system and oxygen survival kit, just in case thugs try tear gas where bullets and bombs fail.

Those are the upgrades, but the standard ballistic glass, opaque armor, doors with specially reinforced hinges and run-flat tires will handle more run-of-the-mill security threats from the occasional hit man, thug or attempted kidnapper. And sure, $629,000 is a lot of money. But save yourself one ransom and it practically pays for itself.
