After we saw the X5 Security Plus and the E-Class E-Guard, it's time to see the new 2010 Bmw 7-Series High Security, a new generation of high-security sedans based on the latest BMW 7-Series. This new vehicle is offered by the German manufacturer in two versions: 760Li High Security and 750Li High Security, both providing the requirements of the new ballistic protection level VR7.
Due to their highly effective protective armour, 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. Reinforced vehicle-specific armour plating made from special steel as well as newly developed safety glazing protect the passenger compartment in particular from attacks of all kinds.
The passenger compartment is protected by armour plating of the doors, the roof, the pillars, the front footwell and the separation wall between passenger and luggage compartments. The steel panels, which were manufactured by means of a special technique, fit the body contours perfectly. The model-specific gap sealing ensures that critical areas such as door cut and body joint lines are safely sealed.
Under the hood, the 760Li High Security comes with a twelve-cylinder engine while the 750Li High Security's V8 engine offer a combination of all-aluminium design, BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology and High Precision Injection with direct fuel injection.
Both models have an electronically limited top speed of 210 km/h. The V12 unit offers its superior power of 400 kW/544 hp at an engine speed of 5,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 750 Nm at 1,500 rpm.
The 760Li High Security can hit 100 km/h in just 6.2 seconds! Its smaller brother, the 750Li High Security comes with the 4.4-litre eight-cylinder engine capable to develop 300 kW/407 hp at engine speeds of between 5,500 and 6,400 rpm and a maximum torque of 600 Nm maintained between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm. The Bmw 750Li High Security accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds.
