Munich's B.M.W. has officially unveiled their
new 7-Series High Security models.


Designed for politicians and the world's elite, the new High Security sedans are the first vehicles in the world to be certified to BRV 2009.


They also boast a stellar ballistic protection level rating of VR7, which means they offer resistance against most common assault weapons such as AK 47 (Kalshnikov) and M16.


In order to meet these stringent levels of protection, BMW equips the cars with chassis reinforcements, reinforced armour plating, and an advanced "safety glazing" that offers added protection against certain kinds of attacks. Other changes include an armoured undercarriage, gap sealing (to prevent bullets/shrapnel from entering the cabin), and multi-layer laminated glass windows.

The car also offers an intercom system, an assault alarm, a fire extinguishing system, and an internal air supply system that automatically activates if a gas attack is detected.

High Security models can also be outfitted with a center console-mounted machine gun case, integrated LED flashing lights, an acoustic signaling system, and security radios.

Like the standard 7-Series, the new High Security models are available with a 300 kW (407 hp) 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 or a 400 kW (544 hp) 6.0-liter V12. The 750Li High Security accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 7.9 seconds, while the 760Li High Security does the same task in 6.2 seconds.
