    Going on the brief you've given us, you could buy an Aston Martin and an AK47, and using computer controlled servos and a drive by wire system to move the car controls to drive the car forwards, and using a GPS locator to time the pulling of the AK47 trigger, after having aligned it towards the target using a laser guidance system....

    Come on, this is homework. At least share your ideas before you ask for help!
