Warding off assassins while saving the environment just became a cake walk with the Jo-Mojo, an upcoming creation by Estonian armored vehicle company DARTZ. This two seat convertible roadster brandishes an 80 horsepower electric engine capable of pushing zero to 60 mph in 9.5 seconds and a top speed of 125 mph — yet most of its “mojo” is outside the hood. Custom seating, color-changing chameleon paint finish, bulletproof tires, and others are just a few of the many “drooling” features. The sunroof is given a task with flexible solar panels built-in, good for juicing up the batteries while idle or on the go. Aimed to hit the market at the end of Q2 2012, its estimated price tag starts at 30,000 euros (~ $40,000), within range of most low-end luxury automobiles. Check past the break for a video slideshow of this snazzy piece of metal by Gray Designs, DARTZ’s partner in the venture.
