New Delhi: If you are an automotive enthusiast and like to flaunt your newly bought model with unique features, then just hold on!
Indian car makers may soon be building bullet proof cars for commercial sale.
Essar Steel India Ltd (ESIL) on Tuesday said it is in talks with vehicle body builders and car designers for using its bullet proof steel in vehicles.
The newly developed bullet proof steel absorbs the impact of bullet travelling at a speed of 700 m/sec with hardly a dent on the surface. This steel has hardness levels above 500 BHN and is extremely tough.
As personal security gains importance, bullet proof vehicles will have great demand in India. Such vehicles are common in developed world; but is a novelty in India.
