Is this BMW’s toughest vehicle yet?

In August, BMW showed off their brand new armoured X5 Security Plus SUV at the Moscow International Auto Salon.

However, it was not done a unique way… Instead of simply displaying the car and explaining that the new X5 SUV was extremely tough, resistant and rugged the company proved it. How? They fired a machine gun and a rifle at the vehicle!

“The risk of armed violence – and in particular, attack with automatic weapons like the AK-47 – is a fact of everyday life for certain customers” BMW

BMW says that this new armoured vehicle is a comprehensive system of protection against violence and crime.

Looking at the pictures we can see that the high security BMW X5 held up pretty well!
