[The] fully armored Rolls-Royce Phantom [is] able to withstand everything from a direct assault with an AK-47 to a poison gas attack.Engineered to the highest international protection rating, the armored Phantom is virtually indistinguishable from the standard version to lure attackers into a false sense of security.
The car features high-tech fiber composites and special steel plating to provide protection for the bodywork, with bulletproof glass for all windows and its own oxygen supply in the trunk in case of a gas attack. The ultra-luxe car's aluminum spaceframe chassis and suspension have been strengthened and the 453 hp powertrain remains unchanged, while nothing has been sacrificed in the way of luxury, refinement and comfort.
More at source:
It has a 6.75 L, 48-valve, V12 engine that produces 453 hp (338 kW) and 531 ft·lbf (720 N·m) of torque...the Phantom can accelerate to 100 km/h (60 mph) in 5.7 s. It has a six-speed automatic transmission and double wishbone suspension.

Nice, I want.
The sales figures should be a pretty good indication of how bad it's about to get out there. Any idea on how well this has been selling?

what kinda mpg can we expect from this? can it be converted to run on bio diesiel kinda seems like a death trap if thers no gas but i guess if u wanted a safe place to wait out a gas attack it would work depending on how long the o2 lasts i dunno just seems like false comfort to me but it does look mighty cool!!
