After a series of threats to Salman Khan and his father Salim Khan, the Bollywood veteran has upgraded his car. Salman Khan mostly used a Toyota Land Cruiser for his commutes. But a recent video shows that the actor has upgraded the car with armour and bulletproof glass.
This is not the all-new Land Cruiser but the previous-generation model. The video posted by Cars For You shows the new car in all its glory coming out of the driveway of Salman Khan’s house. Unlike BMW and Mercedes-Benz, Toyota does not sell factory-fitted armoured cars. However, there are many post-sales garages that can help you with that. Mahindra Armoured Vehicles also offer such services to turn a regular car into a bulletproof vehicle.
One look at Salman Khan’s bulletproof Toyota Land Cruiser and you would not notice any difference from the non-armoured counterpart. However, if you look closely at the windows, you will notice the thick borders, which confirms that the windows are now bulletproof.
While we are not sure about the details of this Toyota Land Cruiser LC200 bulletproof, we have seen a similar armoured Land Cruiser in the past that belonged to a CM of Punjab. The windshield glasses are much thicker than the ones that we see on regular cars. The window glasses have thick cladding to hold them in place, which is an easy way to identify armoured vehicles. Even though the car has power window switches, they do not function.
Salman Khan owns a range of cars
While Salman Khan is being praised for such commoner moves despite being a superstar for his fans, the actor has a range of premium luxury cars as his usual daily rides. Khan owns a Range Rover Autobiography, Audi RS7, Mercedes AMG GLE 63 S, Mercedes Benz GL-Class, Mercedes Benz S-Class, Lexus LX 470, Audi A8, and Porsche Cayenne in his garage.
A few years ago, he was spotted driving around in a Maruti Suzuki Gypsy as well. The heavily modified Maruti Suzuki Gypsy. The white-coloured Gypsy can be spotted with a range of off-road modifications including an off-road spec bumper, an off-road spec bullbar, a tow hook in the front, an electric winch, LED auxiliary lamps, aftermarket headlamps, and more.
The Gypsy also seems like it has been lifted and there are aftermarket mud-terrain tires that make it much more capable on the off-road stretches. The tires are mounted to the deep dish off-road spec rims that are much stronger than the regular wheels and will allow the car to take on rough roads.
Salman Khan is known for his philanthropy as well and he has gifted a lot of new cars to many in the industry including Katrina Kaif.
