Latest protection technology, made by BMW: Armour that is perfectely fitted to the standard model’s body shell. Thus the new BMW X5 Protection VR6 is hard to distinguish from a standard model – neither from the outside nor from the inside. Our aspiration is of the highest diligence when it comes to overlapping armour in sensitive areas like door joints, chinks or at the transitions of doors and windows. The abbreviation „VR6“ („Vehicle Resistance“), that is part of the model’s name BMW X5 Protection VR6, represents the resistance class, that the special protection vehicle is certified with (VPAM BRV 2009, Edition 2 in the current version). Civil protection vehicles are classified in different resistance classes, ranging from VR1 to VR10. Additonally, this vehicle is certified according to the VPAM ERV 2010, Edition 2 guidelines.
Furthermore, the vehicle includes the so called “Post-Blast-Protection”. This means that all armoured window panes are protected from secondary attacks. The window panes remain in their position when subjected ot explosives. No openings arise between glass and body, that could be used as further points of attack. On top, the Self-Sealing Fuel Tank, that reseals itself after damage, and Underbody Armouring ensure that you’re protected all around.
