* MackBolan uses a decidedly uncool GMC motorhome as his "War Wagon," which does however have the advantage of being the last thing anyone would expect a OneManArmy to be driving. It has advanced electronic surveillance capabilities and a retractable 4-shot guided missile launcher, but no armour (except for some steel plates around the driver's seat) as Bolan only uses it for long-range combat.

* ''{{Mercenaries}} 2'' rewards players who find hidden boxes of parts access to some customized death mobiles, including Vulcan-cannon [=SUV=]s and something called the Panzercycle. And yes, it is as cool as it sounds.

* ''CommandAndConquerGenerals'' includes the infamous Technical pickup trucks. They initially comes with a machine gun, but with battlefield salvage they can upgrade to recoiless rifles and finally to missile launchers. There are also Battle Bus vehicles in Zero Hour.

** ''SaintsRowTheThird'' continues the tradition with the N-Forcer, a futuristic SUV with a [[FrickinLaserBeams laser turret]], and the Gatmobile, a van with Johnny Gat's likeness on the front that has a cigarette-shaped flamethrower coming out of its "mouth."

* ''Series/TopGear'' and ''Series/MythBusters'' have both dedicated segments to building ''Film/JamesBond''-style cars. The [=MythBusters=]'' have tested nearly everything in the above "standard loadout" list, except for the missiles, and had some success with all of them.

When testing the bog-standard fixed-mount car machineguns - which Adam in particular thought would be a total bust - the results were spectacularly effective.

* 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.
This list shows the last 10 events of 206. Show all.
