20 kilos would tear it in to pieces of scrap, spreaded over area.

The 20 kg bomb was placed outside the car, on a bicycle next to the lane. The driver of this fully armored Mercedes was just slightly injured. Mr. Herrhausen on the back seat bled to death since an artery was severed by a fraction of the door panel.

Moral of the story - if somebody wants to kill you, he will find the way to do it.

The interesting thing is that the bomb that killed Herrhausen was activated by an infrared beam and had a copper plate in front of it in order to penetrate the door - the complexity of the bomb later led to allegations hat the Stasi were responsible rather than the RAF.

Naah, really unlikely. Despite the fact, that in November 1989 the Stasi was already slipped, as the whole DDR, into agony, they weren't known for making bomb-attentats, even not in the hottest days of the Cold War. Also killing teams were unusual, except a few times in the West Berlin of the early 50ies. Kidnapping had happened more often, but mostly before August 1961.
Plus the fact, that high tech (infrared technic) and non-domestic raw materials (copper) were hard to get in the DDR, in the last years even for the Stasi.
No kidding: do you know, what they have taken for the plenty of listening devices (all phone-connections were bugged, also all apartments of Western journalists, Interhotels, at least the most places, where Western citizens could be found)? They've stolen audio-cassettes out of the packets, West Germans have sent to their DDR-relatives. The older members here maybe still know, that you could record audio cassettes again, when you've put tape over the two holes on the lower edge.

P.S. An anachronistic goof: back in 1989 the Euro-style license plates haven't existed. Combinations with B, F and G neither. :o

The actual vehicle Alfred Herrhausen rode in would have been a different model. Still a W126, but one of the very rare armoured models.
