What’s better than a bulletproof SUV? How about one made by a shotgun manufacturer

Range Rovers are surprisingly versatile vehicles. The British SUV can go just about anywhere while offering supreme levels of comfort, and if you need to get somewhere fast, there are versions for that too. There are also countless custom variants out there (check out this one with a built-in liquor cabinet), but recently, two more challengers entered the fray.

Inkas, an armored vehicle manufacturer based out of Canada, recently introduced its interpretation of the upscale Range Rover Autobiography. The very next day, Land Rover premiered the 2016 Holland & Holland Range Rover, which features unique touches from a British manufacturer of custom shotguns. So whether the bullets are coming into or out of your vehicle, there really is a Range Rover for everyone … if you have a couple hundred grand to spare, that is.

Let’s start with the Inkas. From the outside, there isn’t a whole lot to differentiate it from the standard mill, but this beast is far from stock. The passenger compartment, battery, and electronic control module are all lined with tough armor plating, and the suspension and door hinges are heavily reinforced. The vehicle also boasts a BR6 armor level, which means it shrugs off 7.62mm weapons fire and DM51 hand grenade explosions with ease.

If buyers need a bit more peace of mind, options like emergency lights, fire suppression systems, and heavy duty wheels are available as well. And if you need to make a break for it, the vehicle’s 510-horsepower supercharged V8 should do the trick.

While the Inkas primarily focuses on occupant safety, the Holland & Holland Range Rover is all about style. Style and guns, apparently.

The NRA-approved model is based on the Range Sover SVAutobiography, which comes from Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division. Power output bumps to 550 horsepower for this green beauty, but the best part lies out back. In addition to various luxury accoutrements like engraved brightwork and polished French walnut — the same variety used to craft Holland & Holland firearm stocks — the 4×4 features a leather-trimmed gun case that deploys from the rear. Cool.
