DRIVERS who want more bang for their buck can pick up an Army armoured vehicle with working cannon on eBay.
The Cold War-era Alvis Saladin, priced at £71,500, comes with an authentic 76mm gun and two functioning Browning machine guns.
The British-made vehicle, powered by an eight-cylinder Rolls-Royce engine, is a rare survivor of 1,200 built between 1958 and 1972.
It was picked up by a US enthusiast and renovated over four years.
Nick Mead, of military vehicle site Tanks-Alot, based in Northampton, said: “The Saladin is a lovely armoured vehicle. I drove one around the country lanes of Kent and they’re great to drive.
“If you get the right firearms licence you can shoot the cannon on a registered range. They make a huge bang.”
The 11.6-ton vehicle runs on petrol and can hit 45mph.

But British buyers beware: they have to obtain the appropriate firearms certificates — and pay the shipping costs.
