This BMW X5 has armor and 530 hp

Called Protection VR6, this version of the German SUV is able to resist almost any attack! Because, not content to take advantage of a fully armored body, it also has a bullet-resistant tank and sufficient mechanics to take flight in all circumstances.

BMW does not stop presenting armored versions of its various models. After the i7 electric sedan, it’s the turn of X5 to take advantage of a variant capable of withstanding any bullet impact. To make the Bavarian SUV so resistant, the modifications made by BMW are (very) numerous. However, they are practically invisible from the outside or even inside the vehicle.

Additional shielding

Called Protection VR6, ce X5 is fitted with armored glass can even resist explosive attacks as an option. Almost all of its body takes advantage of high-strength steel. A material that can be found on the doors, the roof and even the trunk! The latter is also separated from the rest of the cabin by an armored partition. The base has also been reinforced and can even benefit from optional additional shielding in the same way as the roof.

Bulletproof intercom and tank

Not content to be shielded, this X5 Protection VR6 also has a tank a bit special. The latter is in fact auto-obturant. It has a special compartment capable of closing automatically after being pierced. Result, evenbut if it’s been hit by a bullet, it doesn’t lose a single drop of fuel. Another unlikely option added to the German SUV: an intercom system to communicate with people outside the vehicle.

A V8 of 530 hp and 750 Nm

In order to continue to move easily despite its imposing additional equipment, this BMW X5 has benefited from some mechanical modifications. Its chassis was first specially reworked for the occasion. It also has bigger brakes and 4-wheel steering. Under its hood lies a Mild hybrid V8 developing 390 kW (530 hp) and 750 Nm of torque. It allows it to reach 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and a top speed electronically limited to 210 km/h. The first copies of this X5 Protection VR6 will be delivered from February 2024. And if BMW does not reveal its price, we imagine that this armored SUV should not be given given the myriad of supplements it benefits from. That said, we must recognize that safety is priceless!
