Gun-rigged Volkswagen used in assassination attempt

Courtesy Autoblog

As car people, there's a certain degree of delight that comes with watching an old James Bond movie and seeing Desmond Llewelyn describe the accoutrements of an MI6-modded Aston Martin or Lotus, all while saying, "Oh grow up, 007." But in reality, a car with concealed firearms, a hallmark of Bond's rides, is actually a terrifying prospect, as one Czech citizen found out.

The incident occurred in Johannesburg, South Africa, when Radovan Krejcir emerged from his Mercedes-Benz and started hearing popping sounds as he was walking into his pawn shop. A Volkswagen Cross Polo, parked directly across from where Krejcir regularly parks, opened fire with a dozen shotguns concealed behind the license plate, according to The Mirror. Ten rounds hit the driver's side window, but the Czech national was clear of his vehicle by that point. After, the VW caught fire. Whether this was intentional in order to destroy evidence, or merely a result of placing 12 hot gun barrels in the back bumper of a car, remains to be seen.

This was not a random act of violence, though. The Associated Press reports that Krejcir is linked to the Johannesburg underground, and that he fled his home country after escaping a police raid in 2005. He popped up in South Africa in 2007 and has been the subject of extradition efforts by the Czech government ever since, who want him to serve an 11-year sentence for tax evasion.

Since arriving in SA, Krejcir has been charged with both robbery and insurance fraud, although charges were eventually dropped. It's also been insinuated that he was involved in the murder of a strip club owner in 2010. Further proof that this isn't you average sleezy pawn shop owner? He drives a matte black Mercedes-Benz CL-Class AMG that's been bulletproofed. Head below for the full news report from South Africa's Eyewitness News.

For someone to come up with something like that and sacrifice a car (and twelve shotguns?), he must have really pissed someone off...

shotguns... what a doofus.. park in stall next to his drivers side door w/ bomb shockwave would've taken him out

I do wonder how the cops are going to protect him until they find the suspect though... this is really unorthodox

Not sure why they would go to all the time and effort to modify a car like that (that they either bought with cash or stole), and then position it against the passenger side of his car? Bungling MacGyvers.

This is what happens when you ban assault rifles and automatic weapons. People use what they can buy at fucking Walmart. Shotguns, yay.

Shame they couldn't have used something less conspicuous like a Camry.

edit: yes, they do have fucking Walmarts in South Africa
sex is a sport like racquetball, you play hard for half an hour, work up a sweat, and hope you don't get hit in the eye
