Have you ever wanted to own a vehicle that was once the bulletproof getaway car for a notorious Prohibition-era gangster and murderer? Well, you’re in luck.
Al Capone’s 1928 Cadillac V-8 Town Sedan will be sold at auction for an estimated $300,000 to $500,000 in Monterey, Calif., in August, Top Gear reports.
The car, which was one of the first bulletproof vehicles ever made, has one-inch thick glass windows and lead-embedded steel for maximum bullet deflection. It also has a dropdown back window and cutouts the size of machine guns, so that Capone’s mobsters could allegedly shoot people from the back.
While the vehicle might look super cool, it probably wouldn’t get you very far in a police chase these days, since it is extremely heavy and very slow.
Capone was in charge of a Chicago mob group during the 1920s and 1930s, running bootlegging and prostitution enterprises. He reportedly ordered the murders of dozens of people.
The green Cadillac belonged to Capone until he was nabbed for tax evasion in 1932. He was incarcerated in various prisons while serving an eight-year sentence.
