What they’ve seen is the Conquest Knight XV. It is a rare beast.The vehicle starts at $629,000, but most go for several hundred thousand dollars more. Knight XV is an armored vehicle, not a vehicle that has been uparmored, meaning this vehicle was built right from the factory with a body designed around and made entirely from armor. It weighs twice as a much as a Hummer and it’s made by hand in Toronto.
According to Conquest, the XV SUV is a one-of-a-kind. The KNIGHT XV takes approximately 4,000 hours to hand build with precision craftsmanship and attention to detail that one can expect from a vehicle of this caliber. It is so unique that production has been limited to only 100 vehicles, including V10 engines, military-grade designs, and high-strenght armour built from scratch. The XV also carries both transparent and opaque armor, from windshields to ballistic aluminum and metal composites.The Conquest Knight XV is built on an Ford F-550 chassis, Its wheelbase is 153 inches and It weighs 8.8 tones. The vehicle is 240 inches long, 98 inches wide and 100 inches tall, with a ground clearance of 14 inches and sits on four ballistic run-flat tyres.
Initially, this beast is powered by a 6.7L Ford Power Stroke V-8 turbo diesel engine that generates 300 BHP and 660 lbs torque. If you prefer black gold, an optional a 326 breaking horsepower 6.8L Ford V-10 gas motor with 462 lbs torque is available. Both engines are mated to a five-speed Torqshift automatic transmission.More than it’s armor features, it is basically a luxury hotel room on wheels.
