The BMW 7 Protection is designed for people with a special need for protection, but it also sets standards in terms of elegance and aesthetics. For example, thanks to a completely revised security concept it has a hardly impenetrable armour. The lines and design, however, are almost identical to the regular BMW 7 Series and therefore offer more room to relax. Even the doors, which are armoured in the truest sense of the word, can be operated effortless and closed automatically from the inside via the control display integrated in the door. We call this 'Effortless Door' technology and it is completely invisible from the outside. So, even though the BMW 7 Protection is a armoured vehicle, you will immediately forget about this fact the moment you sit inside and experience its exceptional spaciousness.


In combination with elevated driving skills speed can be the decisive survival factor when it counts. Thanks to its reduced weight, together with the latest generation of BMW engines (V8), the performance of the BMW 7 Protection sets new standards in its class.

BMW 7 Series G73 Protection Protection Core badge


The core structure of the BMW 7 Protection is the basis for its unique protection architecture. We call it: The PROTECTION CORE. This heavily armoured inner core surrounds the entire passenger compartment and invisibly provides unprecedented protection for its occupants. The low weight of the PROTECTION CORE increases the driving performance. At the same time, it is designed in such a way that its size does not limit the interior space compared to the standard vehicle. Which means that you experience the same spacious comfort in the BMW 7 Protection as in the BMW 7 Series.
