Spotted this in the news on Yahoo. Kofi Anaan was given an armoured S80 Executive today from Volvo. Should be a safe ride.<P> <IMG SRC="http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/ap/20020910/capt.1031681634.un_terrorism_xnyr207.jpg">

The figures were staggering (well, for me used to selling cars for no more than $48K) but the customer opted for a Mercedes. But it was an educational experience for me!<P>Yannis<BR><P>

If he opted for the S class then he got the Guard S500 which starts at about $154 grand. I dont think the Volvo was quite that much although I dont doubt it was close to $100. The amount of weight it adds is astounding. I wonder if they use bigger brakes as part of the upgrade.
