The standard VR4
Unique in its class
The vehicles that Van Berkel® supplies for government and commercial parties are top of their class when it comes to armouring, combined with the latest in car technology.
Safe and reliable
The list of vehicles is lead by cars built in Germany under the brands BMW and Audi.
International and national police forces use these two ‘hard workers’ for good reason, but Sweden also plays a significant role. Volvo is a well-respected brand and partner, whom we welcome to our factory in the Netherlands.
Craftsmanship and technique
All three brands come with their own image and identity and all are well suited for armouring. Whether it is speed, electronics or safety, these vehicles hold the latest technology. And this technology will remain fully functional after armouring.
All mentioned vehicles are custom made from over 300 parts that we have available on demand for all types of vehicles.
When it matters
Our armour does not affect power and driving quality, because the vehicle’s weight only increases a few hundred kilos and the car will look just like a normal car to outsiders. Our armour provides special forces with the crucial protection on which they depend in crisis situations.
Invisible force of the VR4 vehicles
The vehicles are armoured according to norm BRV2009 on a VR4 level. They are consequently tested according to the norm by TNO Balistics Research Center in Rijswijk, the Netherlands. That we are able to produce vehicles according to this norm is unique in Europe. The norm is there to assure our customers that they buy a quality product.
