After Mercedes introduced the M-Guard and Audi the A8 Security, the other German major, BMW has now announced the launch of the BMW 7-series High Security in India. The BMW 760Li High Security is certified to the international standard guideline BRV 2009 and the car meets the requirements of ballistic protection and optimum safety in the individual mobility segment.
Philipp von Sahr, president, BMW Group India said, "The BMW 760Li High Security provides optimum safety in the individual mobility segment in combination with unparalleled comfort of travel, superior drive technology and an abundance of innovative equipment features to guarantee confident motoring at all times.”
BMW says that the security concept was developed along with the regular production model and specific mechanical changes were made to the chassis and suspensions to set-off the increased weight because of the sedan's armour plating.
In order to ensure the confidentiality of this car's buyers, BMW is providing exclusive consultancy and personalised sales and service support all across the country. BMW High Security sedans will be serviced by certified garages only. Access to the vehicles will be restricted to very few select and trained personnel. As part of the special customer service, BMW is also offering special driver training programs for these security vehicles.
