Kanye West has reportedly splurged $1 million on an anti-kidnap car for girlfriend Kim Kardashian and their baby daughter North.

The superstar rapper is said to have bought protective rides for himself and his new family after being advised to do so by best friend Jay-Z, who invested in extra security when wife Beyoncé gave birth to their little girl Blue Ivy last January.

Built to withstand bullets, grenades and landmines, Kanye's latest purchase for reality TV star Kim boasts the same features as vehicles used by the army, so he can be sure that she and their tiny tot are travelling safe.

The kitted out SUV - known as the Prombron Iron Diamond - is also apparently being customised to Kim's taste and set Kanye back a mammoth £800,000, according to the Daily Star.

On top of that, the Yeezus star has supposedly splashed out on a £250,000 car for himself, which is based on the one used by President Barack Obama.

With such a high-profile relationship and now a child that the public is itching to catch a glimpse of, the rapper clearly isn't taking any chances.

Kim is expected to receive her customised Iron Diamond car before October, when Kanye is planning to go on tour in the States.

The curvaceous brunette has yet to make her first official public appearance since giving birth in June and has been keeping an ultra low profile with baby North, apart from filming a brief video message for her mother Kris Jenner earlier this month and posting a three-second video on Keek last week.

However, in both videos she made sure to keep her 2-month-old daughter and her post-pregnancy figure hidden.

As well as buying high security modes of transport, Kanye is also said to be considering hiring body doubles for himself, Kim and North, who will throw attackers or kidnappers off the family's scent.
