Anthony Albanese's new ride is a serious upgrade on the Toyota Camry he was t-boned in while driving last year.

He now gets about in the Prime Ministerial limousine, nicknamed Commonwealth 1, a bullet-and-bombproof BMW 7 Series High Security, a heavily modified grenade-proof VR7/9 model.

Albo was taken to hospital after his Camry was t-boned by a 17-year-old P-plater driving a Black Range Rover last January.

The exact specifications of Commonwealth 1 are not publicly released to foil anyone planning to target the PM.

But plenty is known about the hardcore BMW 7 range of vehicles, which anyone can buy, if they can manage the entry-level $204,000 pricetag.

The Series 7 goes up to $383,000, but the High-Security range are more expensive again. Commonwealth 1 is believed to be worth about $600,000.

The PM's modified car can withstand a roadside bomb, and has a protected armoured fuel tank and tyres that can function even when riddled with bullets.

It isn't just bulletproof. It has overlapping armour plating up to 10cm thick that allows it to hold together in a bomb attack.
