* In ''Literature/{{AnnoDracula}}: Johnny Alucard'', Genevieve drives a [[ShoutOut cherry red]] [[Literature/Christine '57 Plymouth]], which she parks in a bad neighbourhood in Baltimore in order to give detectives her opinion on the crime scene. When she returns, there isn't a mark on it, no missing hubcaps, no broken windows, but a fresh pool of blood spreading underneath the front end. This is stated to be an effect of the car's security system, but we are not told exactly what it is.

* ''Series/{{SonsOfGuns}}'' had an episode featuring a conversion on a black SUV for this purpose, with grenade launchers, machine-guns concealed in a roof pod, and armour behind the back window glass (the glass actually broke when the launchers were fired, but the armoured window inside held). We never find out who the vehicle is for...

* ''Series/TopGearAtTheMovies'' had a string of attempts to make a Range Rover into a Bond car, including steel-and-concrete armour on one side (causing a heavy list to one side) while the laminated glass window armour didn't go brilliantly under .50 cal rifle fire; cloaking technology based on a cluster of TVs obscuring the car and showing a picture of the view from the other side of the car (neccessitating a large generator trailer, which was plainly visible); and weapons including oil and flame jets so pathetic the mooks' cars visibly crash on purpose just because the script says so, teamed with a ramp to launch a toy car with a firework attached for a missile.

* The Mach 5 from ''Anime/SpeedRacer'' is armed to the teeth. The saws were always used to cut down obstacles, though.
** Except in the "car wrestling" two-parter, where Speed used the saws to rip through ''other cars.'' (And the automatic jacks to smash other cars from above.)

** Pretty much every car in the series had a ridiculous amount of gadgets, and weapons. These included Car Acrobats, Ninja Assassin cars, Giant Trucks, and remote controlled ghost cars. Even the regular cars had the ability to jump.
This list shows the last 10 events of 221. Show all.
