How much weight does the armor add to my vehicle?

Trunk Armored Mercedes S 560 by Armormax Back View

Depending on the level of protection and the type of armor installed on the vehicle it can range anywhere from 300+lbs (European Level B4) to under 1200+lb (European Level B6). International Armoring Corporation® uses the lightest and strongest armor in the industry, to help your vehicle maintain its original appearance and performance.

Due to the increase in weight, the vehicles are equipped with custom made heavy-duty armor vehicle suspensions, as well as high-performance brake systems for armored cars. These upgrades allow the vehicle to perform exceptionally.

The added weight will vary based on the options added and the type of materials and products used inside the vehicle.
