Oof. It seems more like the kotaku person really wanted the vehicle but couldnt afford it so they sh*t on it instead.

Yea that's rough. Why's he got such a problem with someone designing their own car. You'd think he stole his idea or something.

Agreed. Most of these vehicles aren't meant for average people either way, they're more for companies who transport VIP's and such, or really rich people buying it for fun.

A company would use something much cheaper and that stands out less. Like a black SUV with armor plating.

I mean it’s a cool vehicle to imagine owning, I think the point of the article is that it’s totally pointless and impractical. Unless you are master chief off to fight some alien invasion, this is just something for rich doomsday preppers to masturbate to.

No, it was purely sarcasm at the ridiculousness of the whole thing.

I mean, I if could light a million clams on fire just for the Lulz, I'd buy one and get those hippie-dippie solar panels.

But you know these will be bought by wannabes that will never take it off the pavement.

Seemed like it was more than that. We could find countless examples of crazy expensive stuff esp in the vehicle industry. Why does this specific vehicle matter?

You realize that the whole world doesn't have the luxury of being safe in their vehicles? An armored SUV like this could absolutely serve a market in countries like Brazil, South Africa, certain parts of Mexico, etc.

Stop. This is not targeted at people who need armored cars. There are shops that will armour cars. This ridiculousnees is targeted at wannabes.
