BMW brand is associated to dynamism, power, performance and luxury words. Few people know that the Bavarian brand has a history of nearly 30 years in producing safety vehicles. In 2008, BMW launched the armored versionof X5 model, called highly suggestive BMW X5 Security. The strengths of this model was that it can “collect” without too much trouble bullets from a Magnum 44, 337 to 9 mm Luger. In addition, the vehicle is equipped with VR4 safety glazing respecting the European standards in this respect.
Last year, BMW X5 Security got an upgrade, becoming BMW X5 Security Plus. The upgrade reflects at the level of security offered to its passengers. In speciality terms, the car meets the ballistic level 6 safety standards. In other words the machine is able to protect occupants in case of an attack with AK-47 weapons.
To highlight and make more common this “hidden industry” of the Bavarian models, people at BMW have released a presentation video of BMW’s security products. Check it out!
