BMW X5 Security Plus Can Stand 7.62 Rounds

Crisis or not, BMW is still working on its security niche market. The BMW X5 Security Plus is an armored version of the X5 SUV that has been labeled “AK-47 proof” because it is supposed to withstand small arms fire. In general, we don’t like using the term “bullet-proof” as no car like this one is totally immune to even small arms fire. Instead people should see this as “bullet-resistant”: it buys enough time for the occupants to escape. We don’t have the exact price, but you can guess that it probably costs an arm.
