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 armourer's 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.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO ARMOUR MY VEHICLE?

The typical conversion timeline which includes right-hand drive conversion and armouring
takes between 8-10 weeks. With the production capacity to convert 60x vehicles each
month and with a workforce of 200x direct employees we are the largest vehicle conversion
and armouring company in the world.
