* 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.

* In ''{{Monsterpocalypse}}'', one of the Terrasaur units introduced in the ''All Your Base'' expansion is the Green Fury Van, a heavily-armed van full of heavily-armed eco-terrorists.
* ''{{Rifts}}'', being Post-Post apocalypse and all, all but encourages Adventurers to do this. Not just guns, but [[{{Magitek}} magic]] as well.
* ''Highway2000'' by Threshold Games (and later Gamescience).

* ''{{GURPS}} Vehicles'' allows you to create these, the example shown having a sports car with VTOL flight capability and energy weapons, and quite respectable armour too.

* ''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.
