What You Need Is A Bullet-Proof Convertible

When you're cruising the mean streets of the French Riviera, a bullet-proof ride is a must. But how do you stay secure and let the wind blow through your hair? With the Jo-Mojo armoured coupe.

Designed by Estonian armoured manufacturer Dartz and built on the existing gas-powered Mojo vehicle, the Jo-Mojo will feature an 60kW, zero-emission electric engine. That's enough power to hit 97km/h in just under 10 seconds (top speed of 200km/h) -- not good for quick getaways but with an armor-plated body, holographic paint coating, and patented bullet-proof tires, what's the rush? Oh right, because your attackers just need to aim slightly higher on account of no roof. To be fair, it does include a cover that locks the vehicle when parked and includes integrated solar cells that help keep the battery topped off.

The Jo-Mojo will retail for $US40,000 when it debuts the middle of next year and is expected to be in high demand among jet-setters along the Azure Coast. [Gizmag via Yahoo News]
