Click above to view the video after the jump

Why on earth would you deliberately shoot a Rolls-Royce and try your darnedest to blow it off the road? Well, because it looks like fun, that's why. But at a third of a million dollars, you should have a better reason than an appetite for destruction and a wad of cash burning a hole in your pocket like so many rounds from an assault rifle.

Fortunately, Mutec has such a reason. The German firm armors up luxury sedans and vehicles of all kinds for customers around the world. In this case, they've worked an undisclosed amount of bulletproofing and bomb-resistant armor into an extended-wheelbase Phantom, and then went to work on it with more fire power than Donald Trump commanding a marine batallion. And since we're not likely to do the same in this lifetime, we might as well enjoy the video after the jump, with our thanks to Patrick and Julio for sending in the tip.

      It is really a bad news

      I would love to own one of these armored vehicles. I have no reason for it, but I still think it would be a lot of fun. Like having your own tank that you can still drive on public roads.

      My choice would probably be an armored Suburban/Tahoe though. A Rolls Royce or Bentley would stick out too much for my taste.

      At the end I was waiting for either one of two things to happen:
      1) A TV host or someone step out of the car and wrap up the video piece. Or,
      2) The Mythbusters style payoff where once proving their point they show just what it would take to blow the thing to smithereens!

      what else is there to say?

      If you need that kind of protection, WTF are you doing tooling around in that car?!?

      I drove for the Saudi Royal Family and the fanciest car anyone drove was the Lexus LS I drove. The other cars ranged from PT cruisers to the occasional A6. They literally have more $$ than God and would never want to draw that kind of attention to themselves. In fact, the only person in a Roller was the Queen and it was several years old and a dull grey.

      The Brunei Royals on the other hand, drove monstrous metallic Rolls limos with Light Up Crowns in the rear windows ( I swear!).

        It's too early to laugh that much.

      So, was this Jay Z's old car before he got this year's model?

      I can fix it dude in my best Jeff Spicoli voice.

      As sad as it is to see any expensive car destroyed, if I (or whoever) were to buy a car like this, and have it armoured, I'd like to know that it would survive whatever threats were thrown its way. It is a shame the car was destroyed.

      Poor Rolls Royce.

        And before you know it, Germany invades Poland.

        It'll buff out

      C'mon, shooting it with a sub caliber hunting rifle? They need to hit it something belt fed!
