  • Ballistic and bullet resistant Škoda offers Superb protection





    • PAS 300 certified civilian armoured Superb Estate developed by ŠKODA UK
    • Based on standard Superb Estate 2.0 TDI 190PSThree-year development and engineering project for British based team
    • Extensively modified body plus upgraded suspension and brakes
    • On-the-road price from Ł118,688
    • Watch the armoured Superb in action here: YouTube


    ŠKODA is already known for its ability to build fantastically strong, safe and reliable cars. But now, following three-years of planning, development and testing, ŠKODA has added to its award-winning range with the addition of a bullet and blast-resistant version of the Superb Estate.


    The armoured Superb is the end result of a joint venture project between ŠKODA and a UK-based convertor. Following three years of development is a finished model that is virtually indistinguishable from the standard production car yet offers bullet and blast protection to occupants.

    Protection is provided by a combination of bullet-resistant glass, high strength steel and composite materials; yet despite this the fully armoured Superb retains its spacious five-seater layout cabin, large boot and acclaimed build quality.

    The armoured car is based on a standard 2.0 TDI 190PS Superb Estate. Although exact details of the conversion must remain secret, the passenger cell has been reinforced to the extent that it meets PAS 300 requirements for ballistic and blast protection. This certification was carried out by an independent test facility and involved firing different types of ammunition at the vehicle and exposing it to blast and fragmentation threats.

    The suspension and braking systems have been upgraded to account for the additional weight of the car, with the former modified to ensure safe and accurate handling at high speeds. Other features incorporated into the design include adaptations to the wheels that can continue to run even if the tyres are deflated – allowing the driver to get to a place of safety after a blowout – and an emergency lighting and siren system. The car also features an 8-inch touchscreen communications hub with GPS, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
    functionality.

    The final on-the-road cost of an armoured Superb is Ł118,688, and, like all new ŠKODAs, comes with a three-year warranty as standard.

    Looking to see if anyone has done a guide on how to go about a cam belt and water pump change on a 2.0tdi. All I can find on YouTube are 3.0l or versions

    I imagine it will be fine, the usual problem with pulling comes down to the struts being built up without a jig and being “persuaded” into lower arm to

    I stuck in the Audi Rubber Mats - granted not to everyone’s taste but boy do they catch the rubbish that comes in.

    Looks absolutely beautiful. Stellar job. I've got a real soft spot for a nice R32 but could never own one as I'm 6'6" and leg / head room is a bit
