BMW has revealed the new X5 Protection VR6, an armoured version of its popular luxury SUV.
According to the Bavarian marque, the X5 Protection VR6 "offers private individuals and persons at risk customised protection against violent attacks, kidnapping or organised crime".
"This is often a decisive criterion, especially in regions like South America, Africa or Russia," BMW adds.
The Ford Bronco could be available with removable doors, as well as minimalist tubular doors.
Patent filings uncovered by AutoGuide show Ford is working on ways of incorporating side airbags into tubular doors (above) with the inflation mechanism mounted well away from the doors themselves.
Ford has also submitted a number of designs to improve side impact protection when the car's doors are removed completely.

Maserati Australia has issued a recall for the 2016-19 model-year GranTurismo and GranCabrio over concerns the airbags may not deploy in the event of an accident.
According to the Italian marque, "the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) airbag system may be defective and not activate" due to a manufacturing fault.
If the condition occurs, Maserati says there is an increased risk of injury to the vehicle's occupants.
