Tesla is one of the most desirable cars in the world, and if you need to make sure that your Tesla (and your passengers) are super secure, you can looking into armoring it. Most armoring processes add thousands of pounds, but this option is only a few hundred, keeping your Tesla moving fast and efficiently. This press release comes to us from Armormax®.
International Armoring Corporation’s lightweight armoring division, Armormax®, has just armored a 2018 Tesla Model S P100D. The Tesla Model S P100D base vehicle is currently the fastest production sedan in the world – traveling from 0 – 60 mph in 2.4 seconds. Armormax® is the lightest and strongest synthetic fiber laminate armoring in the world – weighing 80% less than traditional steel armor.
The Armormax® (www.armormax.com) armored Tesla provides protection from high powered rifles, as well as high powered handguns. With only 550 lbs of added armor weight (standard armoring companies add 3,000 pounds!), the decrease in performance is negligible. This Armormax® armored Tesla maintains its original appearance and functions.
This vehicle is the first armored Tesla Model S P100D in the world and was armored 100% using Armormax® proprietary lightweight molded armor; NO ballistic steel was used. The vehicle was ordered by a Middle Eastern businessman, and it was designed and armored in Ogden, Utah. International Armoring Corporation invites the media and other interested parties to view this recently completed armor Tesla at its manufacturing facility in Ogden, Utah.
While this Armormax® Tesla may be “faster than a speeding bullet”, it doesn’t need to be!
