If a hyper-intelligent car is your main tool for thwarting criminals, it is vital that it be bulletproof or your career may be cut short. Although you don’t want heavy armor panels to stop your hyper-intelligent vehicle from being super-fast and high-performance.
The latest version of the Knight Rider car solves this problem using nanotech magic. However, the original Knight Rider used a bullet-resistant coating. This was the formula for some of their most memorable episodes (The Goliath episodes).
Although science took another 15 years to develop the bullet-proof coating, ArmorThane was able to make it a reality with their polyurea protective coating. ArmorLiner, their latest advanced and innovative variant of this coating product is a spray-on polyurea coating that makes walls virtually indestructible. Once applied they become bullet/blast resistant and ready to take on any situation.
It was tested by the U.S. Air Force on a typical quicky-build military structure. They were amazed at how well it held up to explosions. Polyurea could not be damaged by the 1,000 pounds of TNT that were required to do so.
Smash Lab, a Discovery Channel program, tested a polyurea coating on two trucks. One truck had the coating, and one did not. (Although Rhino Liner is a competitor to ArmorThane, it is very similar in chemical makeup.) They then set off five pounds worth of “industrial explosives” underneath the truck’s rear axle. The truck-bed that was left uncoated was shredded and scattered across the desert test site. The liner deflected the blast to the front of the truck and destroyed the cab. It makes sense to coat KITT with the stuff and have a bulletproof car. You can paint over it to give KITT a sleek and shiny appearance.
