The released images showcase the 7 Series adorned with cracked window glasses that remain intact, while the body exhibits multiple bullet holes, resembling an apparition of true resilience. However, the inside of the vehicle continues to impress with its opulence. What sets this model apart from the standard 7 Series is its capability to withstand extreme conditions. The body is specially constructed from fortified steel, enabling it to endure the impact of 7.62 X 54 R ammunition, notorious for its armor-piercing abilities.

Crafted at the esteemed BMW Plant Dingolfing, the i7 Protection stands as a groundbreaking creation, being the world’s first protection sedan equipped with an all-electric powertrain. To reinforce exterior protection, the i7 incorporates hot-formed steel alloys and armored materials on the roof and underbody, effectively safeguarding against aerial and explosive threats. Notably, the ICE version of the car’s fuel tank is also equipped with a specialized casing that can instantly seal itself upon being struck by a bullet, mitigating the risk of fuel leakage.

BMW has gone to great lengths to ensure the tires of the i7 Protection also provide an exceptional degree of safety. The vehicle is equipped with 20-inch alloys and Michelin PAX run-flat tires, allowing it to continue traveling at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour even when experiencing total pressure loss. Internally, the i7 Protection epitomizes luxury. BMW has spared no expense in providing a pampering experience for its occupants. Highlights include the BMW Curved Display, a 28-speaker sound system, and reclining seats with footrests.

BMW’s latest unveiling of the Bulletproof 7 Series Protection models signifies their unwavering commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of their customers. The i7 Protection is poised to leave an indelible mark on the automotive industry, setting new benchmarks for safety and forging a path for future innovations in car security.
