The shop where I take my cars once had an armored A8 in the shop. I've been going there for a long time and generally chat with the service manager and techs and this one time he was like, man you gotta check this out...

They were installing a supercharger (or a turbo, I forget...) because the armor plating and bullet-proof windows made the car weigh more than 2x what it did stock. I think he said it was up around 6 - 7k pounds.

The windows were about 1 inch thick and could not be rolled down. There was also steel plating in the doors and trunk and hood. And I think it also had run-flat tires made of kevlar or some such...

Crazy stuff but I guess some folks need it.
