Driving a BMW 5 Series Security conveys a safe, relaxed feeling. From development right through to production readiness, the BMW 5 Series Security undergoes comprehensive inspection procedures which include both ballistic tests and driver trials. The testing and certification of the entire vehicle were carried out by the State Ballistic Authority in Mellrichstadt/ Germany, according to European standards DIN EN 1063 and DIN EN 1522/23-1. Testing is based on the BRV 1999 testing and certification guidelines for bullet resistant passenger cars and other vehicles.
The safety glass protects against full-jacketed flat-head bullets up to .44 Magnum (additional tests were
carried out with .357 Magnum and 9 mm projectiles): Soft core ammunition, projectile velocity 440 m/s, projectile
mass 15.6 g, shot distance for testing 5 m. Tested with three shots at a striking distance of 120 mm.
The entire passenger cell of the BMW 5 Series Security is bullet-resistant and also protects against bullets up to calibre .44 Magnum (including .357 Magnum and 9 mm). This is ensured by moulds and plates made of special composite
fibre materials (aramide and polyethylene) plus high-performance ballistic-resistant steel. The side areas, roof, pillars, door trim panels, front foot well and rear are all reinforced with these materials. The testing complied with the impact angle of 45° to 90° required by the BRV guidelines. On top of this, various angles between 17° and 90° were tested all round the entire vehicle, thus exceeding the requirements of the BRV 1999 guidelines and guaranteeing the most realistic scenario possible .

A subtle combination of safety, dynamics and comfort produces the BMW 5 Series Security: a vehicle that is not immediately identifiable as a security vehicle. However, you are aware of the fact that the integrated safety technology is always there for you and ready for deployment at all times.
