Kanye West and Kim Kardashian buy bulletproof and bomb-proof SUVs

KIM KARDASHIAN and Kanye West Out Dinner

New parents are often focused on safety when purchasing family vehicles, and it looks like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are no exception. However, where most people may focus on navigation control and airbags, the uber-famous couple has reportedly taken things a step further. According to the U.K.’s Daily Star, Kim and Kanye haev purchased Dartz Prombrom armored SUVs from Latvia, which are completely bullet and bomb-proof.

One vehicle is reportedly valued at $386,000 and the other, more expensive model–dubbed the “Prombron Iron Diamond”–costs approximately $1.2 million. It can reportedly withstand attacks from landmines and rocket-propelled grenades. That one is reportedly Kardashian’s.

“Kanye is fully aware that his new family is so high-profile they attract the attention of weirdos and psychopaths,” said a source. “He aims to leave nothing to chance. His priority is to get delivery of the vehicles, especially Kim’s, before he begins his US tour in October.”

Kanye has been involved in a few high-profile scrapes with aggressive paparazzi over the past few months, which is perhaps fueling his “protectiveness” in the wake of the birth of he and Kardashian’s first child, daughter North West.

“More stars, especially those with families, are buying the sort of vehicles that boast military-grade specifications,” said Los Angeles-based media analyst Mike Raia.
