For those of us shopping armored vehicle, this one is also bulletproof and blast proof.
The materials used to make the BMW X5 Protection VR6 go through rigorous testing. Being shot by all sorts of bullets and being blow up from many different angles are just the start. Reworking the electro-mechanical bits such as DSC to handle the added defenses. On the offensive side, there is the familiar 4.4L twin turbo V8, reinforced 20 inch tires, and an intercom for communication. Impressively, very little outside noise that gets into the cabin.
30mm thick glass and 4mm armored steel plating give these vehicle in the ballistic rating 6 category. This classification offer protection from high powered rifles such as the 5.56×45 and 7.62×39. In addition to this level of protection, BMW literally blows them up with the equivalent of 33 pounds of TNT at a distance of 13 feet.
