Mercedes-Benz of Lynnwood: A Bulletproof Hybrid Mercedes-Benz

It's probably not one you'll need on your daily commute to Seattle, but Texas Armoring Corporation has created a custom Mercedes-Benz in a class by itself. Combining the latest in hybrid technology with the latest in protection vehicles, the S400 Hybrid sedan is covered in a lightweight armor reported to be  30 to 40 percent lighter than a standard bulletproof covering--but still able to stand up to an M16 or AK-47.

With this level of protection and a selling price of $255,000 (additional options extra), we doubt we'll see many of these tooling around the Puget Sound. But if you're interested, US and European pre-orders will begin on January 3, 2011.
