Following the introduction of the Mercedes Benz M-Guard at the 2014 Delhi Motor Show and the launch of the Audi A8 Security, it was only a matter of time before the third of the German trio came up with its new entrant in the battle of armoured vehicles. BMW India have announced the launch of the BMW 7-Series High Security in India, which has been developed at BMW’s plant in Dingolfing, alongside the standard 7-Series.
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. BMW says that the 760Li High Security has set new standards in effective protection combined with generous comfort and dynamic performance. The unique security concept is based on findings, which BMW reports to have gained as a result of “its determined development work and more than thirty years of experience in security vehicle engineering.”
In order to ensure the confidentially of the car’s buyers, BMW India will be offering exclusive consultancy and personalised sales and service support across the country. The High Security sedans will be serviced at certified workshops, and only a select few trained personnel will get access to the car. As part of the special customer service, BMW India is also offering special driver training programs for these security vehicles.
Earlier in the month, we had carried an article pondering over the official set of wheels that will ferry our newly elected Prime Minister, Narendra Modi with the options being the BMW 7-Series and the Mahindra Scorpio. From last week’s reports however, it has been made clear that the India’s 15th Prime Minister has opted for the specially designed and highly equipped BMW 7-Series High Security – a wise choice!
