Ford to Offer Ballistic Protection Series of Lincoln Town Car

April 5, 2004

Ford Motor Co. announced on April 2 that later in April, it will begin offering a Ballistic Protection Series version of its Lincoln Town Car, according to Automotive News. From the outside it looks like other Town Cars, but it features a reinforced body that can withstand rounds from high-powered or high-velocity assault rifles and submachine guns. The car has run-flat inserts to ensure that it can keep moving even when the tires have been shot out. At first the car will only be offered in the United States, according to its marketing manager, John Anderson. But he said it would soon be introduced in parts of the Middle East, followed by Mexico, Europe, Asia and elsewhere in Latin America.
