When it comes to luxurious vehicles, you probably can’t find any vehicle that’s more decked out than Conquest Vehicle’s Knight XV. And true to its calling card of luxury meeting badassery, the Knight XV comes with a pretty steep price tag too. How steep exactly? Try to the tune of $500,000.

So, what exactly makes this piece of fully-armored SUV worth all that moolah. For starters, its made as an armored SUV from the ground up with a modified F550 Ford chassis as its platform. It comes with a 151-liter gas tank, a five-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel drive, LT40 x 13.50 20-inch Mickey Thompson Baja Radial ATZ with ballistic run flats. There’s more to know about this armored whale of a ride so we’ll direct you to these two videos, one of which is a feature on Discovery Channel, featuring the Knight XV.

Don’t worry, it’s normal to be speechless after watching it. That’s what happened to us.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Yes, it’s kinda heavy! For sure they used a heavy materials out of it. Unlike some armor vehicle they used a multiple sheets of Kevlar in every components of the vehicle.

Looks high and heavy to drive. So what bullet did they used? 5.56 AP or 7.62 AP bullets? but how about the sniper shots? can it still protect the person inside? .408 and .50 cal is a big bang and a deadly bullets on the hands of an expert.

Well, it looks could really kill then you bet this monster can do almost anything. A perfect choice for high profile personels. And yes this is not your ordinary monster vehicle.
