BMW High Security Vehicles

The guys over at bmwblog have published photographs of BMW’s 760i High Security vehicle.

Apparently, BMW had set up a “secret room” at the Geneva Motor Show where some of their high-profile customers were allowed to see the BMW 760i High Security vehicle.

The BMW 760i High Security and the BMW 750i High Security are the first models in the world to be certified to BRV 2009 and both vehicles meet the requirements of the new ballistic protection level VR7. Due to their highly effective protective armor, the non-transparent body areas of the BMW 760Li High Security and the BMW 750Li High Security meet the requirements of the ballistic protection level VR9.

Both models have an electronically limited top speed of 210 km/h. The newly developed V12 unit of the BMW 760i High Security outputs 544 hp at an engine speed of 5,250 rpm. Peak torque of 750 Nm comes at 1,500 rpm. The 6.0-litre 12-cylinder engine is mated to the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, taking the BMW 760i High Security from zero to 100 km/h in as little as 6.2 seconds.

Most of the BMW 7 Series High Security customers come from the Middle East or Russia. Customers in the United States are yet to be named.
