Armored M5

My beast arrived today from the armoring company and here are some pictures...

Because the windows were changed, my HUD now has a light shade behind it as you can see in the photos... The car now has a communication device that allows me to talk to someone outside without opening the window or door and the buttons to operate this sistem are fixed in the driver's seat. It also has a siren in case i get into troube.

The other button located below the dasboard near the brake pedal is a sistem that i can use to lock the windows from going down... its hidden because of valet guys, not that im going to give the car to them, but anyway...

In the pictures you can also see that the tweeters in the front doors are fitted togheter with the overlap ballistic protection.

You can see that the buttons for opening the back windows don't exist anymore, since they dont open anymore... everything else is normal... except for the added weight of 185kg... How much? U$$35.000,00+

I'll post about the straight acceleration, handling and braking changes later... i want to drive it a little longer before i comment on those.

Also why M5 might as well get the 750Li protection or the MB S600 armoured

Gotta love life in Brazil. I've been pushing my father to armor his S-class in Nigeria, but seems to fall on deaf ears. Very nicely done.

I carry one .44 magnum always with me and i have one AK47 in the trunk...J/K... When out of the car you have no protection, you have to be very careful and try to stay always alert. The hole ideia of armored cars in Brasil, (the largerst fleet of bulletproof cars is here) is to avoid getting into trouble on the streets, expecialy at stoplights. Here we have a lot of grand theft auto, and many times people get killed in these thefts.. Since im 19 years old, my dad didnt let me cruise around with my beast and decided to armor it.

Yes the wheels get a light aluminium belt that wont let the tire let loose from the whell, so you can keep on going in case of a blown tire by a shot. NOTE that the wheel may get destroyed if a long journey is covered, this is just in case of emergency...
