It seems that just about every time I turn the TV on these days, I’m flooded with images of violence and terroristic activity going on all around the world. With attacks becoming more and more common, people from all walks of life are trying to stay as protected as possible. In some cases, this means turning an everyday vehicle into a rolling tank capable of withstanding gunfire, mines and in some instances, rocket attacks.
One company that specializes in these insane transformations is the Texas Armoring Corporation in San Antonio, TX. TAC has been building armored vehicles for its customers for the better part of 30 years, and has worked on everything from old-school Cadillacs to the Bentley Flying Spur that was in the shop during our visit. Simply tell the experts at TAC what you want to be able to protect yourself from, and they’ll develop a completely custom armor solution built around whatever vehicle you bring to them.
Check out our videos after the jump to see how TAC can take your car and turn it into something from the likes of a James Bond film.
