As you can see in the video above, Salman Khan is riding in a previous generation Land Cruiser LC200. It comes in a White color finish. This is a great addition to the actor’s range of high-end luxury SUVs. The top-end model of the SV costs Rs 1.47 Crore. It offers 262 bhp and 650 Nm of max power and max torque, respectively. For transmission, the Toyota Land Cruiser LC 200 VX is available with Automatic transmission. You can choose from up to 10 color options.
While many European manufacturers (Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Land Rover, Audi, etc) make OEM armored cars, Toyota does not. It is likely that the actor has added bulletproof armor around the SUV through an aftermarket garage. It needs professional expertise to make a vehicle bulletproof. Several levels of protection are added for the clients. While OEM armor vehicles come with ratings like VR9 or VR10, the exact specifications of such armor are not out in public.
While the armoring jobs are usually very subtle way, there are several changes that can help you to differentiate armored vehicles from regular vehicles. This includes the thickness of the window glass. Additionally, bulletproof cars are very sluggish due to the extra weight of the armor. The bulletproof glasses and heavy armor can add up to hundreds of kilos of weight. To handle this additional weight, the suspension is tweaked.
