BMW 7-Series details:
The two BMW 7-series High Safety sedans set new standards in the protection of persons at risk while travelling in their car. The original safety concept is based on findings which BMW gained as a result of its determined development work and on more than thirty years of experience in safety car engineering. The safety concept was designed parallel to the production model and the integration of security elements is an integral part of the car production workflow at BMW's Dingolfing plant. Specific chassis elements are perfectly adapted to the increase in weight thanks to the sedans' armour plating. Hence, reinforced suspension, dampers and suspension strut top mountings are part of the model-specific part range. This approach ensures finely-tuned car performance characteristics that cannot be achieved by retrofitted armour plating.
Reinforced vehicle-specific armour plating made from special metal as well as newly designed security 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 cornerstones, the front footwell and the separation wall between passenger and luggage compartments. The metal panels, which were produced 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.
The sedans' undercarriage is armoured by special plating which was designed with a particular focus on maximum explosion protection. Another new development is the sedans' 2. 4 (6 cm) security glazing. thanks to its high-tech structure, the multi-layer laminated glass cover offers a original level of resistance. The window panes are covered with a polycarbonate layer on the inside in order to prevent shattered glass particles from penetrating the dashboard.
