* The typical armored car of WorldWarOne British Army was an [[http://www.rrab.com/nov00.htm armored box]] over a civilian [[http://www.rrab.com/rolls/sg-35.jpg Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost]]. In [[LawrenceOfArabia T. E. Lawrence]]'s eyes, the armored Rolls' were the most prized weapons he had.

* ''VideoGame/NeedForSpeed'': ** ''Hot Pursuit'' 2010 allows Cops and Racers alike to shoot EMP blasts and drop spike strips at each other. Cops can even order helicopters to do the latter for them and call in roadblock units; Racers have Jammers that can interfere with police department equipment, preventing them from attacking, as well as Turbo boosts for extreme bursts of speed. ** ''Rivals'' takes the concept further with its Pursuit Tech system. All six weapons from 2010 make a return, alongside electrostatic fields (allowing both sides to block EMP lock), omnidirectional pulses, stun mines, and an alternate version of EMP that instantly hits when the front bumper rams another car.

* '''Portee:''' A large caliber gun, such as cannon or howitzer, carried - not bolted or welded on - on the cargo bed. A gun on portee can be either fired whilst driving or the vehicle parked, or it can be unloaded and fired independently

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portee Portees]] were the usual way on carrying anti-tank guns and light howitzers in World War Two. The asset of having the gun on portee instead of being towed is that it can be fired and moved away almost instantly, and it can be fired on the run. This comes on the price of protection and accuracy, though. US army carried mortars on portee on half tracks and APCs in WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

* The vehicles from ''TopGear'''s Police Car Challenge; each presenter fitted a spectacularly low-budget device for stopping baddies onto their vehicle. Richard Hammond had a stinger (a doormat with some nails in it), James May built a spray paint screen for his car (that failed when confronted with windscreen wipers), and Jeremy Clarkson fitted his rear tires with spiked wheels (which caused him to lose a ''wheel'' when he tried to use them). * ''TopGearUS'' had a challenge to design a Humvee replacement, in which secondhand cars were fitted with paintball guns. There was also a post-apocalyptic challenge episode, where Adam was tasked with fitting a car with weapons. He ended up affixing circular saw blades, a cowcatcher, and a ''catapult'' to it.

* The special programme ''TopGearApocalypse'' featured an arena battle to the death between radiation - mutated cars for the coveted MOT certificate. The mutations included radio - guidance and sprouting ridiculous weapons. Lookout for the hearse with a huge morningstar! ** ''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. [[StuffBlowingUp Hammond makes the mistake of using oil and flames at once...]] * The Suicide Squad van in ''{{Smallville}}''. It features state of the art electronics, a radar based tracker, reinforced steel siding, and a missile launcher.

* In ''Literature/{{Demon Road}}'', Milo uses a 1970 Charger which drops hints of being sentient throughout the course of the book, one clue being way too obvious - when the undead serial killer stuffed in the boot is stated to be bound for digestion by the car, the reader could take him literally when we've already seen demons. Milo is, in fact, the urban legend known as the Highway Ghost. When someone tries to take the car, it is said to have him, not vice versa. Rather more subtle than many other examples, apart from Car Fu from which the car quickly recovers, but he does deliberately put the serial killer in the boot to get rid of him permanently.
