Covered in bullet-proof steel plate and riding on massive, self-inflating tires, the Liberation armored car was by far the most indestructible vehicle at the expo. The roof sports nine tear gas launchers and collection of emergency lights. There are also small ports in the windows to allow passengers to return fire when under attack. The behemoth is sold for 1.7 to 2.3 million yuan ($254,000 to $344,000), depending on features, but don't open your wallet yet—sales are limited to specially licensed enterprises and government agencies.
