At a former Soviet military base in East Germany, BMW hones its armored vehicles and trains some of the world’s best drivers to be able to handle any life-threatening situation world dignitaries, the famous and the very wealthy may encounter while on the road.

While BMW’s line of High Security armored vehicles offer protection from 44 Magnum and AK-47 gun fire, as well as small explosives, driver skill is equally important in the protection business. That’s where facilities like BMW’s High Security training camp comes into play. Check out the tough situations BMW uses to train its drivers in the video below.

Some of the armored BMWs we’ve reported on in the past include the 7-Series High Security and X5 Security Plus models.
