The Royals’ New Ride | PHOTOS

Published

on

Land Rover has revealed its new royal carriage.

The Range Rover Sentinel is an armored version of the British brand’s flagship Autobiography luxury SUV.

Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations is responsible for the tank-like upgrade.

The mobile fortress goes next level to protect those important or rich enough to find themselves in the belly of this beast — adding armored glass, roof, and floor blast protection and an emergency escape feature.

The Sentinel is fitted with more than a tonne of armour plating.

The emergency exit allows passengers to exit via the rear compartment even when the doors are no longer functional — which could be quite useful for a number of British MPs looking for a swift Brexit…

The rolling castle has more than a tonne of armor plating and glass, enough to withstand improvised explosive devices (IED) and automatic weapons, according to Land Rover.

The Sentinel has an emergency exit in the rear of the vehicle.

Its run-flat tyres can still roll at up to 80km/h for 50km once they have been punctured. Additionally only the driver’s window can be opened — by 150mm only.

Owners can option public address technology to communicate with those outside and the Sentinel can also be equipped with a siren and emergency lightning.

Range Rover has upgraded the suspension and driving features to make sure the behemoth can handle on and off-road rigours.

Moving the 4.5-tonne hulk requires some serious grunt in the form of a 5.0-litre supercharged V8, which propels the Sentinel from rest to 100km/h in 10.4 seconds — or about the same pace as a Mazda2 city car.

The Sentinel is best experienced from the back seat.

Inside is a luxurious space with leather upholstery, plush carpet and large digital screens on the back of the front seats. The Sentinel seats two in the front and three in the rear.

The Sentinel is expected to sell for about 500,000 pounds ($924,000).

The Beast is reportedly encased in eight-inch thick armoured panels and five-inch armoured glass which are both bullet and bomb proof. Kevlar reinforced run-flat tyres enable the Secret Service to get the President out hairy situations.

Lifesaving equipment reportedly stored inside includes a stockpile of the President’s blood type, a defibrillator and oxygen tanks in case of a chemical attack, plus a cache of weapons for the accompanying Secret Service members.

The Beast weighs twice as much as the Sentinel but is able to accommodate five people in the rear and uses a big diesel engine because the fuel has a much higher flash point than petrol.

In 2011, The Beast met its match when it got stuck on a driveway hump because of its low profile. This is one issue the high-riding Sentinel won’t have.

Four months after losing its CFO Tim Stone following a reported “personality clash” between Stone and CEO Evan Spiegel, Snap has promoted its VP of Finance Derek Andersen to the role, the company said Monday. Andersen is the company’s third CFO since March of 2017 when it went public.

Lara Sweet, who was serving as the company’s interim CFO as well as the chief accounting officer, will be stepping into a new role as chief people officer.

Snap has had a less cataclysmic 2019 in the public markets compared to its two previous calendar years. Snap has nearly doubled its share price since the year’s start, though the stock still sits just above where it was one year ago.
