In a move that makes us say, "Well... of course," The Guardian reports that Bentley is contemplating the creation of a division that would build "armour-plated" versions of its cars. The competitors in mass-market luxury and premium luxury already have such divisions – BMW just announced the latest versions of its armored 7 Series and Rolls-Royce launched an armored Phantom five years ago, for starters – and third-party companies are already producing armored Mulsannes and Flying Spur Speeds.

A final decision hasn't been made, but Bentley's armored products would be tailored to clients in the Middle East, Russia and Latin America. Entering the high security market could also do that little bit more to help Bentley reach its 2015 sales goal of 15,000 vehicles.

      Why not just dive a beater,low profile vehicle and no one will notice. Sam Walton had a F-150.

          Thats because Sam Walton doesnt live in a hostile environment dumb ass. Transport your comfortable life mentality out of your armchair in the US and you'll understand.

      All that Audi switchgear is disappointing to me. At this price-level, I want utter exclusivity with zero compromises.

      I thought Mulliner had an armor division.

      They already weigh half a ton more than an average car, they can take some heavy plating and glass without having to worry too much.

      Looks sharp, but I can't afford the regular one.

      In all seriousness, though, I would have thought Bentley already had an in-house armored car division, especially since they supplied vehicles to the royal family at one point (I think).

        Yeah but what purpose does the royal family serve anyway? Why would anyone want to harm wallflowers (for getting naked and embarrassing oneself)?

      Need armored cars for all the dirty rotten politicians and those lovely rappers with no morals.
