南非汽車裝甲專家SVI將Toyota Land Cruiser 79 Series改裝為裝甲車，並稱其為《Max 3》，堅固到連子檔都可以抵擋！
為提供安全部隊處理暴力犯罪、恐怖攻擊、示威等，SVI近日推出了以Land Cruiser 79 Series底盤改裝的裝甲車–Max 3
Max 3在引擎編成上雖完全維持Land Cruiser的規格，但外型設計上可就是天壤之別的差距了！巨型的格柵式水箱護罩、兩側堆疊的頭燈、肌肉線條分明的輪廓，讓原本就慓悍的Land Cruiser更顯強壯。
入門(?)款的Max 3，搭載厚度達38mm的防彈玻璃與鋼板裝甲，具有B6等級的防彈等級，換句話說它可以抵禦如南非軍方的R1、AK47的7.62×49 mm的突擊步槍。
Max 3目前正式售價為160萬南非鍰(South African rand)，折合台幣約300萬元。
If the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is a little too modern for your tastes, perhaps this 1965 Mercedes 600 Pullman will do the trick.
Currently listed on eBay with a buy it now price of $285,000 (£212,907 / €239,087), this ultra-luxury behemoth is still a head turner more than five decades later.
According to the seller, the car was belonged to Chen Yi who joined the Communist Party and steadily rose up the ranks as he became mayor of Shanghai in 1949. He went on to become China’s Foreign Minister and was even featured on the cover of Time magazine for an article titled “The Enemy in Asia – Red China’s Foreign Minister Chen Yi.”
This kind of a status allowed Chen Yi to have a very special car and he reportedly had the Pullman shipped to Shanghai immediately after its arrival in Hong Kong. Unfortunately, his time with the car was short as he was “accused of disloyalty” during China’s Cultural Revolution and the car ended up in the hands of Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC).
The car was put into long term storage, but was eventually discovered in the 1990s by a German engineer working for Volkswagen Shanghai. He acquired the car and had it shipped back to Germany. The Pullman has traded hands several times since then, but it only has 13,164 miles (21,186 km) on the odometer.
The model, one of two to have ever been imported in the People’s Republic, has never restored and is in “incredibly original condition.” However, it was shipped to the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in California two years ago where it received a full service.
The listing is light on actual specifics, but the model should have a 6.3-liter V8 engine developing 250 hp (186 kW / 253 PS). Another interesting feature is the car’s hydraulic system which was used to power everything from the windows to the seats to the trunk.
Mind you, this is not the first time this particular car has gone up for sale. It was also listed back in August by the same company, for the same price, but we gather it failed to find a buyer, hence why it’s available once again.
The upcoming Mercedes-AMG One promises to be a very exciting car thanks to its motorsport-derived powertrain, but back in the 1990s, there were road-going race cars on the market that had an even closer connection to motorsport. The Porsche 911 GT1 Strassenversion is one of them.
Porsche built 25 cars in order to meet homologation requirements for the GT1 racing category. Its closest competitor was the Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR that was also produced to meet GT1 homologation.
It goes without saying that the GT1 Strassenversion is a truly remarkable car and, despite its rarity and value, Tiff Needell recently had the opportunity to drive one through some stunning roads in Scotland.

Powering the 911 GT1 is a 3.2-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six pumping out 536 hp at 7,200 rpm and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque at 4,250 rpm. Sure, that may not seem like all that much nowadays, but this is a legitimate racing engine and driving the car is a truly remarkable experience.
During his review, Needell comments that the car has a pair of superb bucket seats that tightly hug the driving and passenger. The clutch is heavy, as are the brakes, but the steering is light and precise. The gearbox is also quite unique and requires the driver to shift between gears in a slow and controlled manner.
