"Terrorist Attack BMW 7 Series
"The LTTE terrorist group tried to assassinate the defense minister by ramming and detonating an explosive laced vehicle in front of my house in Sri Lanka (I was not there at the time). "Tried" is the key word here, since the minister was traveling in an Armored BMW 7 series. The defense minister travels in a motorcade with 3 armored land rover defenders and a couple of support cars and its amazing the bomb was so big it was able to set all thees cars on fire, however the BMW saved the ministers life.
And in Sri Lanka at least, the BMW is a national hero.
BMW 7-series is not that far fetched after all.
As always BMW's are awesome cars".
"It really is amazing the defense minster got out without no injures and was able to continue onto the meeting after a shrapnel laced explosives. World Leaders take note!"
