BMW 7 Series & i7 Protection Models’ Details
The German luxury automaker has released images of the new reinforced BMW 7 Series with badly cracked window screens, which are intact in their places, while the whole body is shown with numerous bullet hits, but continues to be impeccably luxurious and safe on the inside. The ‘Protection’ model of the 7 Series is markedly different from the stock version, as it is designed to endure extreme hostile conditions. Its body has been crafted from solid armoured steel which can thwart the attacks from X 54 R ammunition, which is capable of piercing armours. The 7 Series Protection seals its fuel tank on the event of an attack to thwart any chances of fuel loss or fire.

On the other hand, the BMW i7 Protection is the world’s first all-electric protection luxury sedan. The exterior of these vehicles is crafted formed from hot-formed steel alloy with specially armoured roof and underbody to offer protection against aerial or ground bullet and explosive attacks.
The Protection models come with special 20-inch alloys and Michelin PAX run-flat tires, so they can travel at 50 miles per hour with totally flat tires. The Protection models are no different visually from their standard i7 and 7 Series models to maintain discretion, and their run-flat tires and flag holders are the only visual differences.
