We've seen our fair share of kitted out armored vehicles, from bullet-proof BMW models to Land Rover SUVs that can take a land mine. But Lexani Motorcars has recently put its armored car experience to work on a Toyota Sequoia. Why? The company isn't saying, but we imagine a Toyota is somewhat less conspicuous than a high-dollar German sedan. With sufficient armoring on five sides to protect the machine from 7.62x51 mm rifle rounds and under body plating stout enough to keep the occupants safe from both grenades and land mines.

But this isn't some brutal tank. Inside, the Sequoia serves up leather seating, wine coolers galore, a massive, retractable LCD flat screen (which doubles as a cabin divider) and and beautiful wood trim. Rear passengers can see exactly what's going on outside thanks to a bevy of discreet cameras, and most of the onboard electronics look to be controllable via an iPad. Check it out below for a closer look.

      Looks pretty nice inside. Cool they kept it stock outside.

      Beautiful work. I love seeing SUV's with their middle seats removed and just the back seats draped in luxury. I'm surprised Cadillac doesn't sell a version of the ESV Escalade in a similar setup.

          Def agree that the Caddy is nicer, and more useful with those 4 seats, but you would be more able to fly under the radar in the more pedestrian-looking Sequoia.

          It's heaps better. The doors to the champagne cabinet not meeting just spoke of poor craftsmanship, on the Toyota model.

      This thing is luxury and safety defined, but where will I fit my 32 other wives?

      Want. Curious what the price tag would be.

      Perhaps Saddam or Gaddafi would have liked it.

      Is it me or do the people who use armored cars need a steady source of alcohol? Is there a link between needing an driving around isolated from the world and self-medication?

        I didn't know old pimps were Toyota salesman? I thought they were people that actually had money. Interesting...

      The cabinets have cheap routered edges instead of mitered. Just another example that money does not buy class.

      The brakes on this thing pose its greatest threats, not rifle rounds and land mines.

      If you want an Amoured SUV do what the Secret Service goes for. Buy GMC or Chevrolet Suburban. They have tha pawa to carry the extra load and go like stink.

        Or go all out and get that Marauder thing they had on top gear. This interior in a Marauder would be one of the most mental things I could imagine.
