You could have an impenetrable fortress of a home, but that counts for nothing when you’re out on the open roads with loved ones. That is, unless you procure this beefy version of a Tesla Model X, courtesy of US-based retrofitting firm Armormax. Bulletproof glass and steel aside, it’s got enough toys to keep even Bond villains at bay.
ROAD RUNNER - They may think they have you after slashing your tyres – but yours can run while flat for a good 80km.
MIC CHECK - Everything else is useless if you lower your window to speak to a bandit masquerading as an officer. Use the external communications system instead, which allows you to converse with strangers from the safety of your cabin.
HANDS OFF - Would-be Intruders are in for a rude shock – electrified door handles prevent entry by force.
BULLETS BEGONE - Lightweight ballistic shielding and layered glass and acrylic sheets let you shrug off gunfire, while adding little weight to the already fast car.
CATCH ME IF YOU CAN - A road tack- dispensing system secures a swift exit – pursuers are going to find themselves on flat tyres that, unlike yours, won’t work.

02 RED STREAK
It was a matter of time before the Prancing Horse 488s went turbo. The new Ferrari Pista brings the 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8s to bear, but drops 90kg from its previous form to hit 711bhp and a century sprint of 2.85 seconds. As for the name? Everyone expected it to be “Scuderia” or “GTO”; “Pista” simply means “track”.
