About the Bulletproof Bomb

The Bulletproof Bomb is the number 7 car. The car's model is reminiscent of standard early 1900s American motor cars. It sports a grey and black body with yellow wheels.

The Bulletproof Bomb is equipped with three spare tires for breakdown purposes, although they are never used. The dashboard features a built-in police radio tracker, which is useful for monitoring highway police transmissions to avoid capture. The exhaust features machine guns for an alternative speed boost power. The Ants themselves keep countless guns, violin cases and other "ill gotten gained", at one point was dispensed with to lighten the load. The Ant Hill Mob keep their own personal revolvers at hand, to fend off rivals and police and even assist fellow racers against common opposition. The trademark power-up of the Bullet-Proof Bomb is "Get-Away Power", in which the Ant Hill Mob (except Clyde) add their leg power to the car's speed in similar manner to Fred Flintstone.
