As BMW eloquently puts it, the BMW X5 Security Plus is designed for customers who face "the risk of armed violence -- and in particular, attack with automatic weapons like the AK-47." Accordingly, the vehicle is headed this month to the Moscow Motor Show, showing off a number of enhanced safety measures: body panels built with steel armor, and windows made with a security glass laminate, finished with a polycarbonate coating on the inside to prevent any spalling (breaking into tiny pieces). Those measures result in a VR6 rating ("VR" being short for vehicle resistance) on the BRV 2009 scale, which evidently means an ability to withstand "projectiles from military weapons that travel twice as fast as bullets fired from a revolver," as well as shrapnel from hand grenades and other explosives. Additionally, the chassis is reinforced to accommodate the extra weight, while flashing LED lights are useful in case you have to navigate through crowded streets in a hurry. Check out detailed looks below.
