How much does it cost to make a car bulletproof?

I think the idea of having a bulletproof car is awesome! But I don’t really hear about anyone actually doing it. Why? Is it expensive to make a car bulletproof?

Answer
Having a bulletproof car is awesome—in theory. Who doesn’t want to drive around in a Batmobile? Unfortunately, it can be ridiculously expensive, with a price tag between $16,000 and $50,000 for the process on its own or between $80,000 and $100,000 if you purchase a car that’s already been bulletproofed.
Lots of people choose to bulletproof pieces of their car instead, such as the tires, engine, or windows. This is much more cost-effective than a whole vehicle transformation.
One thing to look out for if you’re planning to make these changes is how it will affect your car insurance. Many companies will raise your premium or refuse to cover these types of modifications. So, check with your provider before proceeding.
