Unique B3 to B7 Armoring services

We can save you time, money and guarantee peace of mind by installing armour protection for your vehicle while it is being converted from Left to Right hand drive. We offer between B3 to B7 rated protection, across our entire range of American Pickup, SUV, Muscle Cars, EV and Commercial vehicles. Traditionally, vehicle armouring, or bulletproofing, services would be performed either before or after the vehicle conversion adding extensive costs in logistics while significantly increasing the production timelines and overall delivery of the vehicle. At Autogroup, our skilled engineers and production team uniquely deliver simultaneous vehicle conversion and armoured fit-out services, plus any other customisation your vehicle may require, all within the same location, production bay and project schedule.

Complete 360° Protection

All doorpanels, glass, front, central and rear pillars, rear entrance/tailgate, roof, firewall, front and rear fenders, and bumper bars are protected with B3 to B7 rated protection depending on client requirements. Critical driving systems are identified and housed in blast-proof material.

Maintain Performance

All critical driving systems and drivetrain components are protected including axles, brakes, suspension, and door hinges, which are either structurally reinforced or replaced to maintain the vehicle's original driving characteristics, reliability, and speed.

Highly-Skilled Team

Our engineering, production and manufacturing teams adopt the latest technologies and certified armor solutions sourced from approved Original Equipment Manufacturers. Our armouring procedures evolve constantly to ensure all vehicles feature the latest protective technologies.

EUROPEAN PROTECTION
STANDARDS

Autogroup International have simplified the armouring process by adopting European EN 1063 Ballistic standards, armouring all of our vehicles to BR6 level which is certified to offer protection against handguns up to .44 magnum, rifles using up to 7.62x51mm rounds (AK47, GPMG, sniper rifles, AR15,etc) and withstand up to two hand grenades detonated underneath the vehicle. The European standards EN1522 / EN1063 specify 7 levels of protection: B1 to B7. These standards are represented by a B Level which measure the level of protection offered by retro-fitted ballistic armour and bulletproof glass. Autogroup International can provide armoured solutions from B4 up to B7 as required.

frequently asked questions

WHAT MAKES AUTOGROUP INTERNATIONAL’S ARMOURED VEHICLES UNIQUE?

We combine our 20+ years of conversion experience to produce high quality armoured right hand drive vehicles. Our customers are not restricted to existing right-hand drive vehicles on the market so can avoid underpowered Toyota Hilux/Landcruisers, Lexus and Ford Rangers. We offer the largest range of American SUVs, Pickup Trucks and Muscle Cars – all of which can be discreetly armoured, fit out with luxury CEO ‘Private Jet’ style interiors or both.

WILL IT BE OBVIOUS THAT I HAVE AN ARMOURED CAR?

All Armoured vehicles designed, engineered, and manufactured by Autogroup International remain anonymous and indistinct from the original OEM. This provides an added level of security to occupants which is possible due to sophisticated engineering, advanced ballistic glass and the craftsmanship of our team of 200+ people across engineering and production.

DOES ARMOURING SLOW THE VEHICLE DOWN?

Armouring a vehicle adds significant weight to a vehicle – irrespective of manufacturers claims of ‘light armour’ the reality is that all round ballistic and blast protection adds weight and impacts performance. However, with many armourers only offering underpowered vehicles such as Toyota Landcruisers, Hilux and Lexus, the performance impact can be very significant when compared to our range of GMC Yukon Denali SUV’s or Sierra 2500 Pickup trucks both offering high power/high torque petrol or diesel engines which easily outstrip the competition.
