$65,000 well spent

Ever wnted to be the king of the road? Well now you can for the low price of $65000. (Sorry missles not included) Let's just hope this doesn't become the next Yuppie fad.

The armoured vehicle is equipped with a full range of electronic devices that enable the five-member crew to monitor the environment and control a lethal arsenal. One button can control a .50 caliber machinegun mounted on the roof that can fire 520 rounds per minute. It is also armed with 16 missiles to shoot down incoming rocket propelled grenades in mid-air(AFP/Roslan Rahman)
