* ''NightStriker'' has the Inter Gray, which is a FlyingCar armed with machine guns (plus, it can [[TransformingMecha transform into a mech]]). Many of the Mooks are also these.
* Both your car and certain enemy cars, called Switchblades, in ''SpyHunter''. They get SpikedWheels; you do not.

* Numerous Transformers with car modes have vehicular attack modes, which involve deploying hidden weaponry or mounting a gun piece on it. For example: one of Hot Rod's handguns can be plugged into his engine block. Some just plain have cannons out all the time. Example: ''[[TransformersCybertron Cybertron]]'' Optimus Prime's ladders/{{BFG}}s.

* Both the [[TMNT1987 1987]] and [[TMNT2003 2003]] ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' 'toons featured these. The original toon featured the Party Wagon, while the second series featured two different Battle Shells, the Turtle Hauler, and several less-frequently-used vehicles.

* 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.

* ''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.
