Engine & Performance
BMW utilizes a twin-turbo 4.5 literV8 to create 450 horsepower, the one found in their xDrive50i model. The engine provides adequate power and performance to maneuver through dangerous situations in spite of its weight.
That output is disseminated to all of the four wheels through the xDrive all-wheel drive system. Its gas mileage is of concern here. Instead, BMW tweaked the chassis, the brake, and electronic management systems to offer performance that is similar to the base X5.
Though the armored model appears like any other X5, there is a huge difference between the two. The car features high-performance steel moldings and the panels that ensure maximum protection, even against an AK-47 rifle.
To prevent bullet from penetrating, it features sealed joints that provide protection. For instance, in the crucial areas around the doors or where the panels adjoin body pillars, you can be confident of the needed protection.
Thereâ€™s also a specially designed security glass which is resistant to assault by a variety of weapons. The polycarbonate coating inside the glass offers the best protection against flying splinters.
Over and above brilliant level of security, the concept also impresses with the highest level of comfort thanks to its generous interior. The car offers passenger the best of both worlds.
The concept comes equipped with security-specific modules and technologies on the inside that protect you against all sorts of assaults.
