A Toyota Hilux to brave any riot

SVI Engineering now offers an armoured anti-riot Toyota Hilux bakkie.

Other than its ability to carry eight people, it offers the following features:

• AK47 assault rifle protection for cabin and canopy
• Homologated to 3 499kg GVM
• Six seats and seatbelts, and air con provided in the canopy
• Windows with gun ports and an escape hatch
• Cost-effective solution with low running costs
• Run-flat tyre protection can be ordered as an option.

“As the vehicle may exceed the carrying capacity of the donor vehicle, SVI had to homologate the Hilux to ensure it is safe for public road use. This included a brake, side-slope and visibility test at the Gerotek facility. The vehicle passed the criteria and is homologated to a GVM of 3 499kg to allow drivers with a standard car license to drive the anti-riot Hilux.”


Should you provide your own single-cab Hilux, conversion and installation for the B6 Stopgun cabin armour will cost from R223 000 and for the B4+ riot-control canopy from R271 000, exclusive of VAT.

The standard SVI warranty on the armour of one-year/50 000km applies for road use.
